Product Engineering, Design For Manufacturing, Process Engineering, and Equipment Design

Whether you are developing a new product, refining your manufacturing processes to make your product more profitable, or preparing your product for manufacturing, we can help you because we have done it before. We apply decades of combined experience to find the best solution to your new product design, mechanism design, process engineering, equipment development, Design For Manufacturing, and cost control challenges.

SGW Designworks has developed a strong presence locally in Idaho, but works with clients nationwide and overseas.

Clients of SGW Designworks all have one thing in common: they have a technical challenge that is holding their business back. The projects we complete for these clients fall into one of three categories:


     Product Engineering, Product Prototypes

    Is your business ready to turn a great idea into a tangible new product, reduce the cost of an existing product, or produce the first prototype of something completely new? Let us provide product engineering services and product prototypes. We can develop a new design for you from scratch.

    Design For Manufacturing

    The manufacturing processes used to produce a given product at a given volume can have serious implications on product design. Did you know that even minor changes to your product design can align it with a manufacturing process, resulting in higher throughput and lower production cost? Through a process called Design For Manufacturing, or DFM, we are able to review the design of you product, analyze it for the manufacturing processes best suited for your production volumes, and optimize the design to maximize manufacturing efficiency.
