Part of ‘Phase 3: Production Engineering’ often includes the design and fabrication of assembly and testing fixtures. Omnica has built hundreds of these using in-house engineering and fabrication resources.
R&D requires low-volume, functional prototypes and fixtures. This project’s goal was to detect and quantify particulate passing through the carotid artery during coronary surgery. The results were rather stunning and enabled our client to better understand vital program issues.
We developed an intraoral scanner for use by dentists to capture optical impressions of both the soft and hard tissues of the dental arches and digitally transfer them to an interface, lab or a computer monitor for printout and interpretation.
Omnica partnered with the client’s engineering resource to develop a multi-modality (PET, ESPECT & CT) laboratory instrument for imaging small animals. Our major responsibility was the Industrial Design, the external skin engineering and DFMA. The client asked us to build a full-scale non-functional mock-up which was an opportunity to push our 4X8 CNC router to its full capabilities.
