Mechanisms

Griswold Engineering, Inc. has expertise with both structural and non-structural mechanisms. Whether safety related, such as automotive passenger restraints and seating, or low cost & reliable mechanisms for consumer products, we can provide a solution for you.

We have a great deal of experience generating concept mechanisms from a clean sheet of paper. If you can provide us with your desired features and targets, we can provide concept mechanisms (with descriptions and trade-offs) for your product.

Our services are often used to optimize current production mechanisms. Optimization of mechanisms includes better reliability & process capability, lower forces to activate, lower cost, lower weight, modifying frequency response, etc.

CAE is available for mechanism system FEA, tolerance analysis, dynamics, kinematics, load analysis, and frequency analysis.

Prototypes can be provided quickly for evaluation and testing prior to full tooling. Rapid prototype processes include SLA, SLS, and cut & weld steel.
