CUSTOM PRODUCT DESIGN &
IMPROVING EXISTING PRODUCTS
Kinemek’s core service is designing innovative mechanical equipment for solving difficult challenges. Whether designing new products or improving existing products, our design experience has made us an expert for designing equipment that performs well in harsh environments. Kinemek's goal is to create products to improve our world through innovative design that make complex tasks easier and safer.
In every product Kinemek designs, 7 key design elements are used:
1. Safe operation
2. Easy to use and repair
3. Simple design
4. Aesthetic appearance
5. Robust for a harsh environments
6. Reliable operation
7. Little to no maintenance

PROTOTYPING OF DESIGN
CONCEPTS & PRODUCT DESIGNS
We make physical prototypes to assist with each stage of the design development, from initial design concepts to final product designs. These prototypes show how well the design functions and where improvements are needed. Kinemek uses a variety of prototyping tools ranging from LEGO Technic to 3D printing to manufactured parts.
BATCH PRODUCT ASSEMBLY &
Kinemek looks after all the following:
manufacturing of designed components with expert manufacturing partners,
batch assembly of products, and
quality control and quality assurance for assemblies and components.
We have experience assembling tools and machines ranging from a few inches to 20 feet. Kinemek also designs manufacturing jigs to solve assembling difficulties, and develops assembly drawings and instructions when needed.
TESTING OF PRODUCTS &
Kinemek tests components and subsystems of a product during development. Once the product is finalized, we perform product testing by checking how well it functions in different conditions, such as low temperatures. Some of the testing methods we use include:
finite element analyses to test the strength of components and assemblies,
virtual motion studies,
making prototypes to test functionality and performance of components, subsystems, and the overall products, and
using testing equipment to test speeds, pressures, and so forth.
