"Carlson was instrumental in every step, from design to development to SLA models where we needed about 10 samples for our sales reps and for display at a show. They did all the preliminary CAD work, they helped us with design from the very start. "

Engineering & Design
You can expect superior results from Carlson where our approach is both collaborative and efficient. We use the latest engineering software, support all standard data exchange formats and employ a concurrent engineering and manufacturing approach, machining directly from full, parametric 3-D designs, to ensure the greatest level of accuracy and efficiency. And we keep you in the loop every step of the way using the latest web-based collaboration tools to reduce time to market, errors and misunderstandings.
Product Design Services
Whether starting from a concept, napkin sketch or existing product, Carlson’s talented engineers speed the product development process. These services include complex solid modeling, conversion of large data sets, CAE analyses such as FEA and plastic part mold flow simulations - all supported by years of application experience.
3-D Digital Sculpting
Not to be confused with texturing or engraving, we take your new or existing product and add complex 3-D definition starting from a simple sketch or digital photograph. Cad Models are viewed prior to manufacturing when it is inexpensive to alter vs. texturing or engraving.
Carlson Tool has high-speed coordinate measuring machines capable of measuring large or small parts, molds, dies, etc. using constant contact scanning or touch trigger probing.
Using many of today’s latest technologies and materials, Carlson assists in all your prototyping requirements. We also offer other RP options including SLA, SLS, RTV, and Spray Metal Tooling.
Our group of talented engineers can assist you with all of your design needs
