Pump worked closely with the industrial designers and the internal team at AccuQuilt throughout the development cycle, providing mechanical architectural layouts, technical proof-of-concept prototypes, materials selection, and production ramp-up support.
One challenge during the design included selecting and testing specific materials for the gears. It was critical to select a robust material while still keeping investment and part cost low.
With our proactive approach, we were able to identify and solve problems early without compromising the aggressive development schedule.
