New Product Design
At Shaw Development, LLC, a dedicated Engineering and Prototype Department employed for new product development makes up 15% of the company’s total personnel. Our team lead engineers are members of the Society of Automotive Engineers, American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the Society of Plastics Engineers. Their expertise in these areas is the core of Shaw’s design, analysis, development and prototype activities.
Shaw Engineering performs all design work is performed on CREO CAD modeling software a leader in the industry for all design purposes. Analysis tools have been selected for their ability to seamlessly work with the Pro/E design models.
In addition to concept to production capabilities, the engineering group is heavily focused on performing upfront CAD analysis that ultimately reduce project timelines by reducing unnecessary conceptual developmental validation. Shaw engineering utilizes CREO Simulate™ for Finite Element Analysis and FloEFD by Mentor Graphics for Computational Fluid Dynamics, a high-powered engineering simulation tool. In addition, Sigmetrix CETOL™ is also used for CAD tolerance analysis.
Design reviews may be held via teleconference, at a selected customer facility, or at Shaw’s Design Center in Bonita Springs, FL. Design reviews may be scheduled to discuss design, validation testing, and/or manufacturing progress.
Test and Validation
Shaw has a state of the art in house validation and testing facility. The test lab includes six environmental chambers, and the capability to support flow, slosh, thermal cycling, pressure, and dust intrusion testing. The test lab’s capabilities include thermal testing from -40 to +200°F and fluid flow capacity in excess of 200 GPM @ 60 PSI. Vibration and shock testing is available to meet the most stringent off-road profiles. Shaw's engineering test experts can help design a robust test and validation program customized for your solution
