BugLab-biotech-measurement-device-CAD-render-2

the challenge

BugLab came to Peterman Design Firm to design a new enclosure for a new electronics/sensor package. Our challenge was to create a new design that was easy to take a part and maintain while remaining splash proof and usable in the lab. Existing enclosured relied on RTV and other types of adhesive to remain sealed and functional, which made repairs and changing components difficult.

the solution

We created a product that use gasketing and eliminated the need for any adhesives. We also created a form that protected the product from the most common liquid intrusion issues, sitting in puddles and having liquid poured on them.

the results

Our design met all requirements and had the additional benefit of being a modular design allowing for part sharing between this product and future products in development.

Retractable Trailer Cable Reel

Trailer Reel

Product Design and Development, Rendering, and Prototyping

the challenge

Our client came to us with a patent looking to develop the idea into something that was manufacturable and ready to commercialize. The product needed to be durable, protect the cables, work on almost any trailer, and be used by someone even when wearing thick gloves.

the solution

The solution was to develop multiple mounting systems to allow for different trailers, creating an easy single knob adjustment system, and integrating components to ensure the cable received as little wear as possible from the product being used.

the results

The product was designed, developed, prototyped, and tested. Through our iterative process, we came out with a product that met all the project requirements, ready for pre-production prototyping.

OnRobot (Perception Robotics)

Product Design and Concepting

the challenge

Give a new look and feel to two different robotic grips, the Gecko and the Tactile grippers. This needed to be done quickly and without any adjustment to the internal engineering.

the solution

We used company aesthetics and other inspiration to create several design options and walked their team through the concepting design process. Sketches, sketch renders, and then finally into CAD.

the results

We created two unique designs that were eye catching, functional, manufacturable, and did not impact performance in any way. The final designs were put into CAD renders along with the sketch renders we had done through the process.

Evo-Hub Concept Electric Scooter

Evo-hub electric scooter

Conceptual product development

blank

the challenge

Our challenge was to create a unique electric scooter design that fit between the vespa and most electric scooters out there. More durable and with longer commute range, but not large enough for sitting.

the solution

Through rethinking what the electric scooter could look like, we create a unique design including a hub-less wheel. In addition to being unique, it creates a great locking point for the scooter when you aren’t using it, such as bike lock areas.

the results

This electric scooter concept, named the Evo-Hub, was completed in about 4 weeks. The final pieces were renders for presentation, along with a few conceptual sketches we made during early ideation. The result is a unique and interesting form with capacity of 4 times a standard scooter, without being so large or heavy it could not be pushed if needed.

Product Design and Development

Titan_Foam_Rocket_Launcher_Render_Concept_Peterman_Design_Firm_cross_section_mechanics_close_up

the challenge

We wanted to design a product that could be picked up into an existing product line. Kids love bigger and bigger toys, just look at what Nerf has. So we envisioned a foam rocket launcher. The goal was to create a concept product that could launch larger foam projectiles and open a new market of larger launchers in the toy industry.

the solution

Rethink the entire assembly and manufacturing process, prototype over 10 designs per product, and create a design language anchored in its roots but more fitting for modern design.

the results

A new design language, streamlined components for use across multiple products, and manufacturing time decrease. This was accomplished through use of new component suppliers, manufacturing floor redesign, tooling optimization, and the complete redesign of the inside of the cabinets. This allowed for the addition of several new products, all of this over a 3 year period.

the challenge

Update the existing product and add a new version, while improving manufacturability and Cloud9 not having CAD files for their own product.

the solution

A slight redesign in mechanics, addition of 2 new sizes, and creation of 3D models for client to own.

the results

We were able to create the desired sizes, while keeping the same aesthetic. We also created all the 3D files needed for them to own and have the product manufactured anywhere.

the challenge

Saber Forge needed to re-engineer their product line to be more modular for manufacturing. Their product line needed expanding, including a curved saber they were having issues with. Also involved was a logo update and product photo shoot for several products we helped launch.

the solution

The solution was modular system incorporating their newly developed in-house electronics. We also ensured shared hardware and easier to manufacture parts. We also created a geometric logo.

the results

The results were a decrease in per-product cost in both parts and labor. The modular system is the basis of their entire current product line. They also received an updated logo, with all the files.

Pro Crayster Traps

Product Design & Sourcing

the challenge

Crayster needed to transform their hand made traps into a manufacturable product they could outsource. They wanted a US made product that did not drastically increase their per unit cost.

the solution

Our solution involved a minor redesign to their two products for manufacturability, manufacturing documentation, and the sourcing and vetting of several manufacturers.

the results

We completed the redesign with no functional change to the product, allowing machine manufacturing. After producing the documentation for manufacturing, we proceeded to vet and source US based manufacturers. Through our sourcing, we were able to locate and approve a manufacturer located just a couple hours from their location as well as meeting their cost targets for both products.

the challenge

We needed an easy to manufacture, durable, and easy to use storage system that could be carried.

the solution

To ensure manufacturability and ease of use, we chose a modular system that limited the number of components required. We also made the canister stack in an arch, allowing for easier carrying.

the results

We created a modular canister system that stacked, latched together securely, and was made out of high quality materials as well as stacked in an arch for easier carrying.
