Digital Engineering Services Accelerate Time to Market for Complex Products
Prudent American Technologies designs and manufactures a wide range of complex, high quality, high precision parts in plastic, rubber, metal, and wood. But we are not your typical contract manufacturer. We understand the need for faster time to market and for full service. A critical part of that process is Advanced Engineering – our digital engineering services that focus on fine-tuning product designs and mitigating production risks.
We start by building models and simulating processes during the design stage. This provides the team with an in-depth look at system behavior so that challenging issues can be resolved before making significant investments in raw materials and tooling. Ultimately, this shortens the parts approval process, drives speed to market, and reduces total costs for our customers.
Our Advanced Engineering function provides digital engineering expertise in a wide range of modeling and simulation tools. That includes Moldex3D for injection molding and Mastercam, Solidworks, AutoCAD, and GibbsCAM for precision machining. We employ design for manufacturing (DFM) early in the process to optimize product designs and shorten development cycles.

During production, we continue to employ state-of-the-art technology.
3D printing is used for rapid prototyping, to produce small batches of highly complex products, and to create spare parts.
For injection molded parts, our advanced process control and monitoring system stabilizes the process to increase efficiency, ensuring high quality at the most reasonable cost. Download our injection molding details here.
For precision machined parts, sophisticated CNC machine tools and robotics create complex geometries. After first article inspection, adjustments are made to the process, as needed, before the full production run. Download our precision machining details here.
