Proper mechanical design is not only based on physical requirements and standards, but it also has to look good and operate efficiently from a usability perspective. The process of separating design constraints from look-and-feel is an important one in order to maximize functionality, ease of use, and marketability.
We use state-of-the-art CAD tools to design, test, and simulate parts in a 3D virtual environment. Through this process we can carefully review and refine the design before it reaches physical form.
Once the design is approved, we can render prototype and pre-production parts using approved vendors through a variety of processes that include; SLA, Cast Polyurethane, Sheetmetal, and CNC using a wide array of materials.

“Robert is a highly productive engineer who is a credit to ProCurve. He is great to work with as well.”
“Besides being an excellent engineer in the “nuts and-bolts”aspects of designing technical solutions to real-world problems, Robert is also a strong champion of the customer experience and finds innovative solutions to customer problems. In short, he does a great job of understanding the customer (not just the technology) and then finds ways to makes the technology easier for customers to use and understand.”
“Robert is an exceptional engineer. I’ve worked with him in various capacities and have always found him to be thoughtful and creative in tackling the most difficult problems. He can be trusted to deliver quality solutions in a timely manner and with minimal direction. He as a well deserved reputation as one of the strongest engineers in the organization.”
“Robert is a fine software engineer with exceptional attention to detail. Robert is organized and possesses a through understanding of C and of Windows drivers. I would hire Robert to work for me if given the opportunity.”
“Robert Van Rooyen is a rare breed of engineer: a top-notch hardware and software engineer with the unique ability to communicate technical ideas in a concise and clear manner, even to non-technical people. I highly recommend him to any team looking for technical expertise, leadership or both.”
