Discovering Your Vision
The first phase in new product design & development is a comprehensive orientation session that, together, will allow our design lab to create your Product Specification Document. This document is integral for defining and specifying project goals and objectives, prior to entering the conceptual development phase.
Conceptual and Mechanical Development
To begin, using your PSD or perhaps existing model if applicable, we create a concept drawing. The concept of your vision comes to life with 2 and 3 dimensional drawings that through visualization provide superior insight for adjustments and critiques. The approved drawing is transformed to a mechanical print to make the once imaginative idea a build-able reality. A prototype is created for approval to confirm design decision.
Our cutting edge CAD engineering software, complete with surface and solid-modeling capabilities, enables us to assist you in expediting product delivery to the market, contributing to a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Our design lab staff offers assistance to its clients in the final process of bringing the engineered product to production by serving as a client liaison. This same service continues and is not limited all the way through to the delivery of the product.
Quality and Standards
Each production phase is carried out at Frameworks America in full compliance with international standards required by single markets: EN 1836 for sunglasses (personal protective equipment) in Europe, ANSI Z80.3 in America, AS 1067 in Australia, and ISO 12870 for spectacle frames, medical devices. In addition to these international standards, the entire production chain is subject to strict quality standards that are applied within Frameworks America.
