Everything you need to get your product design done quickly, creatively, and on budget.

Enginuity’s agile product design and development crew includes experts from our in-house mechanical, electronics, and automation engineering teams, as well as our industrial design department.

You know best what you need to deliver, and we will get you there.

Product design is about creating a functional, fit-for-purpose item that fills a market gap.

We guide you through discovery, conceptual design, proof of concept, and rapid prototyping to bring your idea to life.

You’re in the loop at every step.

Everyday, we solve a broad range of problems in multiple industries — and we pass that expertise on to you.

By trying different solutions inspired by our work in food production, medical, mining, marine, agriculture, and more, we find the best answer to your new product design challenge rapidly and efficiently.

Our Core Competencies

R

Product Research

leverages our own internal resources plus our vast network of subject matter experts, scientists, labs, manufacturers, and suppliers.
R

Concept Development

grows from your idea to proof-of-concept to fit-for-purpose conceptual design under our expert guidance and includes mechanical, structural, and electronic design.
R

Product and Prototype Design

is covered from preliminary design to fabrication package.

Sketching, CAD models, photo-realistic rendering, and mock-ups bring the design to life.

R

Industrial Design

combines artistic skill with practical knowledge to produce designs that enhance a product’s function and aesthetic by looking at user needs, ergonomics, human factors, market requirements, and the environment in which it will be used.
R

Rapid Prototyping

impresses investors, communicates concepts, and optimizes resources.
R

Electronic Prototyping

includes electromechanical systems, machine automation and factory integration, computer vision, electronics test stations, process logic, sensing and measuring, programming/software development, and data collection and storage.
R

UX/UI (User Experience and Interface)

— or human-machine interaction (HMI) — is part of every Enginuity solution.

Case Study

Prototyping and Product Development of Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detector, OL1

Enginuity is helping Nova Scotia Start-Up Prosaris in developing their ultrasonic leak detector, the OL1 – radically changing the way we manage leaks.

The OL1 is an ultrasonic leak detector that can detect, locate, and manage the smallest of leaks. Highly applicable for industries such as oil and gas.

Case Study

Developing a Cannabis Analyzer with Greenlight Analytical

James Wylde wanted to develop a prototype of a mass spectrometer that could sample cannabis in a simpler, more convenient way and provide faster and more accurate results. Enginuity’s Product Development team are helping them make it happen.

Ignite’s Innovation Hub

Ignite’s Innovation Hub

Doug Jones coordinates Ignite, an innovation hub expanding from Yarmouth in central Nova Scotia, to Stellarton in northern Nova Scotia. Ignite’s Mission is to help entrepreneurs grow their companies and their economic impact and their goal is to provide physical space and support for these local entrepreneurs. Their locations provide the tools they need for their businesses, and are they supplied with basic prototyping, video equipment, drones, and more. We’d like to congratulate Doug on Ignite’s new facilities and Enginuity appreciates the opportunity to be one of their Corporate Partners!
