Custom Design Solutions
Hutchinson – We make it possible! Is our brand message. This is an accurate statement. For over 160 years Hutchinson has been advancing technical solutions to enable our customers to reach their goals. Hutchinson is a service company – we view your problem as our responsibility. Our goal is to develop cost effective technical solutions to improve our customers’ products.
Our traditional approach to customer support is to investigate the use of a standard or already existing designs prior to developing a custom solution. Hutchinson has thousands of designs – our catalog captures our “Standard Parts” – we are tooled to produce thousands of other designs which are not standard catalog style solutions.
Many times design requirements can be met through the adjustment of an existing design – possibly by molding in a different compound, or assembling already tooled parts in a new configuration.
Hutchinson has full analytical and CAD capability (including non-linear 3D FEA) as well as proprietary analytical tools to understand the customers’ problem. We have an extensive historical materials database, as well as the ability to compound a new elastomeric material (if the problem requires one). We have tool design capabilities, and do process development to ensure a quality and high repeatability product results. We have extensive in house testing capabilities, and contacts at outside test facilities when needed.
We follow a strict Phase Gate approach to product development to ensure customer requirements are met, and development schedules are met in a reasonable time frame.
Please bring us your problem – Because We Make it Possible.
