New Product Design
At Shaw Development®, a dedicated Engineering and Prototype Department employed for new product development makes up 15% of the company’s total personnel. The engineers are active committee 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 on Pro/Engineer modeling software, the leading design platform used by the mobile equipment industry. Analysis tools have been selected for their ability to seamlessly work with the Pro/E design models.
Pro/Mechanica™ is the Pro/Engineer Finite Element Analysis software package. Computational fluid dynamics analysis is performed using CFdesign™, a high-powered engineering simulation tool.
Initial and ongoing technical support is available for the development of your custom engineered solution, and we are available for any on-site design reviews necessary for a seamless integration of its products. 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.
