Capabilities

From Concept to Manufacture

Concept Development

As part of a creative yet controlled revision process, we take a clients brief and produce design iterations rapidly. We share ideas between a team of both product designers and mechanical engineers so that early on we lay the foundations for efficient manufacturing.

Design Optimization

We can help you to optimize your design for production with subtractive or additive manufacturing. Our experienced designers can provide you with techniques and best practices to improve the strength, appearance, and functionality of your products.

Prototyping and Refinement

Our team has extensive knowledge in prototyping and refinement. We can create stunning renders or using our in house 3D print bureau create scale or life size models. We also have a team of Simulation consultants to test prototypes before final refinement.

On-demand Manufacturing

We provide Designers and Manufacturers with a variety of custom-tailored 3D printing and CNC machining services. We can produce high-performance prototypes, tooling, molding and manufacturing aids, end-use parts, and low-volume production runs.

1. Analyze

Project Assessment

TriMech Services start with you. By adopting a user-centric approach, our service team will help your organization identify opportunities where design to manufacturing best practices can be leveraged to address new ideas, ongoing challenges, or new business needs.

TriMech is equipped with the resources, expertise, and technologies to empower your team.

Design Evaluation

Unlimited by traditional design-for-manufacture rules, our subtractive and additive manufacturing enables designers and engineers to envision detailed, complex geometries for next-generation parts without considering constraints typically faced with traditional manufacturing processes. Whether you are starting with a market need to fill or clearly defined project parameters, we can help – from initial market research through the key considerations for form, fit, function, and structural integrity.

With this design freedom comes a new set of tools, principles, and practices: Design For Additive Manufacturing (DFAM). Whether making last minute geometry tweaks or designing from scratch, our experienced team has the knowledge, expertise, and technologies to help you.

Solution Proposition

Following our project assessment, our specialists will propose an optimized solution that aligns with your business requirements and current market demands.

Feasibility Study

Our team specializes in creating innovative solutions to meet your demanding challenges. Our manufacturing facilities have the latest manufacturing technology for testing, bench-marking, and validation of your proposed solution; which allows us to run feasibility studies quickly and effectively.

The study consists of:
  • Technology Assessment
  • Materials Selection
  • Implementation and Process Strategy
  • Test and Validation

3. Deliver

Manufacture

By applying the latest subtractive and additive manufacturing technology, our staff of highly-experienced specialists will meet the most stringent demands in terms of time, cost and precision for production of your solution.

Prototype

Create any form imaginable with molding, machining and 3D printing, producing parts direct from your CAD design. Blend aesthetics and function into an incredible model, in your hands and ready for display.

Correct errors and improve designs early in the development process, or evaluate thermal, chemical and mechanical stress using high-performance materials, adding a new level of performative data for your product. Whether concept modelsfit-functions parts, or functional prototypes are required, our team of professionals can offer a solution that best meets your needs.

Direct digital manufacturing

TriMech is a leader in direct digital manufacturing (DDM), enabling speed and design freedom to empower advancements in product development and the products themselves.

Using the latest additive manufacturing technologies and materials, we are able to provide optimized manufacturing aids and fully-functional end-use production parts. For low-mid volume requirements, additive manufacturing affords increased design freedom and customization capability, as well as reduced cost and production time compared to traditional methods.

Manufacturing tools, such as jigsfixturesdrill guides, and check gauges can be quickly and cost-effectively produced with additive manufacturing solutions, eliminating machining or tooling requirements whilst affording increased complexity.

TriMech’s turn-key manufacturing services will allow you to quickly respond to evolving production requirements and market demands.

Our Manufacturing Technologies

CNC Machining

Modern CNC Machining Methods

CNC Machining Services include milling, and turning for the production of high-quality parts using modern machining methods. We employ highly skilled machinists and industry-leading equipment to accommodate a vast array of manufacturing applications.

CNC machining is usually a slower prototyping process than 3D printing parts. However, it is an extremely accurate process and is, therefore, ideal for low- and high-volume production of end-use production-grade metal and plastic components.

Benefits

Subtractive manufacturing is still available for applications where a machined part from metal or plastic is the best solution. CNC Machining can also be used to finish 3D printed parts that require boring, drilling, face milling or other precision machining for enhancing features.

"TriMech and their team have provided an enormous benefit and will be our partner of choice for future modeling, simulation, and engineering needs."

Billy Stone
VP, Engineering, Cottrell Contracting Corp.

"TriMech provided exceptional support. Whether it’s discussing design/modeling ideas or material options/tradeoffs, it’s hard to find better knowledge and experience. There are many places to go for 3D printed parts, but finding someone better would be difficult."

Matt Wilcox
Senior Mechanical Engineer, G3 Technologies

“TriMech’s Project Engineering Group was the epitome of professional. Brian’s team gave me great guidance and really brought life to every detail of my design. I’m currently in the patent stages, and my attorney has stated that the 3D and mechanical renderings are some of the best he’s ever seen – and that’s coming from a patent attorney of 25 years! TriMech worked within my budget and handed me quality deliverables.”

Neil Lesher
Inventor

“TriMech was able to quickly respond to my request and provide the requisite support for a fast paced project to develop a multiplex gas sample conditioning and analysis system. The project was a success and the system is in operation at our Bio-Energy Washing gas processing plant located near Seattle, Washington.”

Lorne Adams
Director of Engineering, Ingenco

“The Interferences detected by developing the ‘Rockbridge’ 3D model early in the project prevented an abundance of re-work and field changes. TriMech and their team has provided an enormous benefit and will be our partner of choice for future modeling, simulation, and engineering needs.”
