ClaroWorks offers mechanical engineering design services to companies that need help or additional resources for short to medium term projects. We are a team of degree qualified mechanical engineers who specialize in projects where something is made. Our goal is to help you from early concept development through start of mass production. With our extensive in house manufacturing capability we can significantly simplify the process of making a few prototypes though short run production. This allows you to stay nimble and flexible as long as possible before engaging a more formal, larger contract manufacturer. If production runs are low we may be able to handle all your production needs.

We also specialize in tooling projects, designing and building the tooling you need to manufacture other products.

Claroworks optimal engagement for mechanical engineering design services.

Note: While we are mechanically focused, we are also highly experienced in electronics integration, packaging, thermal management, etc. We do not offer sophisticated electronics or software design, but can handle basic PCB design for power supplies, motion control, and other complimentary applications.

Engagement with ClaroWorks to provide mechanical engineering design services is available in three different models to best suit your needs.

Engagement model A – Team ClaroWorks

This is the best model of engagement if you would like us to work on a project-type basis, handing over parts of the design and build for ClaroWorks to handle in totality. This model offers the highest value if you would like to minimize the effort required from your own resources, or if the schedule is very aggressive and you want to minimize the possibility of delay.

Engagement model B – ClaroWorks Engineering

This is the best model of engagement if you need additional engineering design resources and would like to handle management and day to day direction of the project yourself, whilst still having ready access to many of the additional resources ClaroWorks offers such as surge capacity, the larger engineering team for problem solving, prototyping and short run production.

Engagement model C – Engineer

This is the best model of engagement If you would simply like a single dedicated design engineer.

Please call us to discus your resource needs. We can quickly get you an estimate of what might be involved to help you and your project.
