OUR MISSION: TO BUILD CUSTOM MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT, TEST FIXTURES, & AUTOMATION THAT R&D AND MFG TEAMS LOVE TO USE
HOW TO LEVERAGE US:
From the early stages of R&D through formal device verification and into production, Pipeline partners with your engineering & manufacturing teams to translate user needs into engineering requirements and develop custom manufacturing equipment, turnkey test fixtures, & automated machines that characterize, inspect, assemble, manufacture, & perform verification testing on your devices.
OUR VALUED PARTNERS
TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD.
“Our company's New Product Development ,R&D, and Advanced Operations groups have been working with Pipeline Design & Engineering for several years on projects ranging from simple test fixtures to automated, micro-controlled kinematic test stands. Pipeline has also managed and executed the 3D scanning, design intent modeling and drawing package creation of complex surgical devices. They have consistently proven themselves to be responsive, reliable, and highly competent strategic partners. The level of quality and creativity present in their work has been exceptionally high and has led to successful project execution and a reduced time to market for our Company’s products. Pipeline’s staff is a very pleasant and professional group of individuals with which to work. I wholeheartedly recommend Pipeline Design & Engineering to any group in need of design and/or engineering services.”
Dual Power Bicycles has employed the services of Pipeline Design and Engineering on a continuous basis for the past three years. Their ability to leverage 3D computer-aided design is excellent; this permitted Pipeline to overcome the substantial technical challenges required to develop this bicycle. Beyond just the design and engineering, Pipeline made seamless the process of coordinating with vendors to produce custom machined components, performing complex assembly work, and testing and troubleshooting the various designs during the development process. In short, I highly recommend Pipeline’s services in product design and prototyping to any interested party.”
“Pipeline designed and built multiple precision fixtures for us to use in a clean room. These fixtures allow the operators to assemble hundreds of products where previously they were restricted to only a couple of dozen. They are easy to work with and very responsive to our needs. Working with Pipeline will be a good investment for your company's future; it has been for ours.”
As a business owner, trust is vital for effective design and development. Pipeline has earned our trust and supported our new product design efforts for several years. They have provided outstanding industrial design as well as detailed CAD models that have allowed us to refine and manufacture several versions of our product. I recommend Pipeline to any companies or individuals needing a solid design and engineering team.
Creation is in our DNA. It has taken the world from the abacus to supercomputers. At Pipeline Design & Engineering, the drive to create—to reach into the void and transform a shapeless concept into a physical reality—is the most thrilling thing we do. How can we help your team develop custom manufacturing equipment, test fixtures, and automation?
FUNCTIONAL TEST STATION PROJECT SUMMARY
The functional test fixture allows an operator to simply insert and remove a device – the rest of the test sequence is fully automated via a custom LabVIEW program which steps through a multi-button cycle test and a vision system 360-degree scan that can encompass mechanical/quality characteristics as well as operational characteristics (such as RPM, speed, shaft straightness, vibration, and more.)
Software/Control System Engineer
Solidworks 3D CAD
CYCLE TESTER TEST FIXTURE PROJECT SUMMARY
A custom medical device test fixture to actuate multiple mechanisms on a device in an automated manner. The custom program built to control the automation also provided the ability for an operator to easily reprogram the cycle process to alter several key parameters.
Solidworks 3D CAD
MEDICAL DEVICE TEST FIXTURE PROJECT SUMMARY
This project encompassed the design and procurement of a comprehensive set of fixtures for functional and characteristics testing performed on a plethora of optical medical catheters. A total of six requirements-driven fixtures were developed, perfected, and delivered during the life of the project.

How can we help you?
How much time is your team losing because of equipment or fixtures that don’t work correctly the first time, or don’t produce repeatable, accurate results? How much time would your team save if they could focus on designing the product and simply have our team develop the equipment they need to test & manufacture the product?
