Research, Design, & Development
Safe, Inc. has a staff of dedicated, experienced designers and engineers, with oversight from project managers dedicated to providing the desired product to the client on time and within budget. Our team environment allows utilization of individual specialized expertise to support all efforts improving the quality and efficiency of the design and development process.
Safe, Inc.’s prototype and manufacturing services are constantly adapting and growing to meet the demands of our design and development activities. Our current prototype capability allows us to efficiently produce development and test units for design concept evaluation, verification, and structural and performance testing. Manufacturing capabilities include machining, mechanical assembly, inspection, and packaging in accordance with contract requirements. This combined capability, coupled with our research and development functions, allow for a comprehensive on-site capability to support any project from inception through production.
Safe, Inc. engineers have access to FEA software in house for real-time modeling and design confirmation. This enables rapid development of accurate designs. For higher level modeling and simulation, Safe uses outside services that provide the level of sophistication needed while reducing overhead and providing lower-cost solutions in support of Safe’s customers.
Safe, Inc. has a multi-axis, multi-loading point static test facility in-house. In addition, an in-house drop tower provides for component level dynamic testing. In concert, these test devices lead to efficient, reduced cost testing activities, and earlier design verification. The opportunity to test components of a design on this scale means problems can be found much earlier, reducing the need for repeat of full-scale system tests that reveal problems. Failure in full scale tests must be followed by re-design, re-work, and repeat of full-scale systems. The use of these test methods during development results in a shorter development cycle and lower costs.
