Projects In The Slide Show

More than 25 years of projects and product design examples are represented in the various areas of the above slide show.  A small fraction of the things we do.

For us, and for many of our customers, this is a trip down memory lane.  A chance to remember all the amazing people and engineering design projects we have the privilege of working with.

A big Thank You is certainly in order - Thank You for working with us;  Thank You for teaching us so much along the way;  and most of all, Thank You for coming back again and again with the challenges that continue to stimulate our minds and enhance our lives.

For visitors and new customers, we hope you will see the product design and engineering expertise examples that inspire you to connect.  Please drop us a line on the Contact page when you are ready.

If perchance we have not shown some aspect of product design or engineering services you are looking for, we encourage you to ask.  As mentioned, much of the work we do is confidential in nature, and that work is, of course, not shown here.  It would absolutely be fun to show everything - because some of the most interesting engineering design projects are the confidential ones.  Ah, but alas, we respect all intellectual property of our customers as well as requests for privacy.

A Deeper Look At Engineering & Product Design

For an in-depth look at some of the more unique engineering solutions, you may also find it interesting to view the list of patents we've had the privilege of working toward.  The list is long and growing because we are creative, innovative and love to help our customers achieve great things.

Would you like our help with new intellectual property?  Again, the slide show above is only representative of the creativity we bring to the table in all our product design and development projects.  We hope you enjoy the designs shown in the slide show as well as the rest of the website.

We would love to help you on your next product design & development adventure.  Or, if engineering consulting is more what you need?

Please see our Engineering Services pages (like Product Development, and Engineering Consulting).  Some slides above show special made machines, so if you need one, check out the Custom Machines page for more examples (with some descriptions) of our work.

At Synthesis we offer a lot, and we have a lot of experience.  Let us know what you need.

Thank you for visiting.
