transducer design experience and capabilities, including mechanical, electromagnetic,
heat transfer, fluid flow, and acoustic prediction, measurement, analysis,
and synthesis. This includes finite element analysis (FEA), boundary element
analysis (BEA), and custom lumped parameter modeling tools, as well as commercial
loudspeaker specific tools such as LEAP, XOPT, MLSSA, and others...
- Complete CAD solutions, using
AutoCAD, Pro/Engineer, or SolidWorks for everything from simple 2-D drawings
to complex 3-D parametric solid model assemblies. Solid modeling experience
is essential for rapid prototyping and fastest overall time-to-market. Most
tooling can be created directly from the 3-D solid data, eliminating the
time-consuming and mistake prone drawing regeneration and translation process,
ensuring that the parts are right the first time.
- Rapid Prototyping expertise,
including coil winding, vacuum and heat forming, stereolithography, and
metal work. The time from concept to prototype is often measured in days
rather than weeks or months.
- Technical documentation, including
bills of materials, fully detailed 2-D drawings with custom borders, electronic
CAD data, and renderings.
