MECHANISM DESIGN FOR DRIVE TRAINS, AUTO-INJECTORS, INTERLOCKS, POSITIONING SYSTEMS, MOTION AXES, AND MORE

Many mechanical engineers can trace the origins of their engineering careers to some early-life experience building models or “borrowing” the lawnmower engine to build a go-cart. The precision and elegance of well-designed machines and mechanisms is irresistible to a certain type of mind. Others may consider this a curse, but for mechanical design engineers, mechanism design is their raison d’etre.

NOVO MEs are conversant with precision drive trains, interlocks, latches, bi-stable structures, micro-positioning actuators, precision drive trains, escapements, ratchets and myriad other gizmos. They know when to use an electromechanical approach and when to use a purely mechanical approach. They appreciate how a click or snap, or the way a device feels when you hold it in your hand, can produce a more satisfying user experience.

The quality of the mechanism design of a tool or device determines how well it will function and how reliable it will be. These two characteristics are major contributors to the reputation of a product in the marketplace, and reflect strongly on the brand. You can trust NOVO’s mechanical engineers to identify the optimum mechanism design for your product needs.
