Leverage The Power of Innovative Design & Engineering
Get to Market Faster, with Products that Stand Out

You probably have more ideas than you can keep up with.  The trick is getting them into action while keeping the rest of your operations humming along.

Customers are anxiously awaiting the next version of your product.  Costs of goods are rising, employment costs changing and competitors are also progressing.  Let us take away some of that stress.

For more than 20 years Synthesis has worked with numerous companies, forging relationships and creating innovative products to build success.  We know how competitive it can get and how thin the margins can be.  We also know it’s hard to compete against true innovation.

Let’s Set the Standard, and Innovate Together.

Let’s Innovate Together


We are idea synthesizers.  We pair your expertise and our outside perspective and bring to life true innovation.

Custom Machines Direction


Everyday solutions in one industry can adapt as truly elegant solutions in others.  We bring a broad view.

Custom Machines Direction


The cross-pollination of what makes an outside design engineer so valuable.  Experience counts.

Custom Machines Direction


Bringing the right people and resources together at the right time allow design synthesis and feed innovation in design.

May I See Some Examples?

As a reflection of innovative design, Synthesis has contributed to 70+ Patents in our quest to assist customers.  That’s our contribution to design innovation in a broad spectrum of industries.

For an indepth look, please jump to the Case Studies library.  If you’re in for the quick version, here are three examples of work that made innovative strides for our clients.

Innovative Design With Bicycle Suspension Fork
  • The Challenge:
    Create a bicycle suspension fork weighing 1 Kg when typical forks weighed 2 – 3 Kg.

    The Solution:
    Through innovative design and optimizing the material, we successfully engineered the lightest weight hydraulic fork in the world.  It was then successfully raced to a USAC Mountain Bike Marathon National Championship win.

    Talking about both the race specific performance and the lightweight design, one racer stated, “This is the best race fork ever!”

Design Of Functional Plastic Toys
  • The Challenge:
    Transform CGI designs (from the movies) that don’t play nice with the laws of physics into toys that can fly.

    The Solution:
    The team of engineers and designers found creative ways to finesse the original concepts into flying with the rules. We brought them into compliance while preserving the artistic intent.

    To the delight of 8-year olds everywhere, the Naboo Starfighter and Trade Federation Battleship (and others) not only look cool, they actually fly!

Innovative Mold Split
  • The Challenge:
    Design a simple mold for a complex duct of a military aircraft with no slides or extra mold inserts.

    The Solution:
    A creative mold split and a very small (0.020”) approved deviation.  The split was complex, for sure, but simple CNC mold machining made it work perfectly.

    Just like a professional athlete makes the perfect throw look effortless, this design and the CAD modeling is deceptively simple.

Other examples include Bike Rack enhancement, new Trailer Suspension combinations, and pushing boundaries in Prototyping.

These images can’t do the technicality of the projects justice.  But, that’s when we know we’ve hit true innovation.
The elegance makes it feel like the solution should have been obvious.  See More.
