For decades, ISL Products has worked with a collection of industrial product design companies specializing in both mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. We understand the amount of design and research involved in bringing a new product to market and we are here to assist. Contact our engineers today!
Benefits of collaborating with ISL Products:
- Experienced engineers familiar with the new product development process.
- Keeping your customers’ intellectual property safe is our top priority.
- Decades of component design and manufacturing expertise.
- We become an extension of your engineering team.
- Dedicated support throughout the entire product life cycle.
At ISL Products we specialize in the design and manufacturing of value-added electromechanical components and electronic components tailored to meet specific performance requirements. Our expertise lies in electric motors such as application-specific dc gear motors, ballasts for uv c lamps, and audio components. Our components can be found in a wide range of applications from a handheld medical device to popular consumer electronic devices.
Most product development consultants and professionals specialize in various engineering facets with different technical backgrounds centered around industrial product design and development as a whole. Collaborating with ISL Products allows us to become an extension of your design team while providing unique and specific insight at the component level so that you can streamline your overall design process.
Safeguarding Proprietary Information
We understand how sensitive certain information can be, especially when it comes to new product development. The privacy of you and your customers are a top priority for ISL Products. NDAs (non-disclosure agreements) are a standard for us. We feel that they are important in building relationships and ensuring ideas and information are protected.
We pride ourselves on the collaborations and partnerships we have established over the years. In order for ISL to be a viable contributor on any project, it’s important that we fully understand the application and how it’s intended to function. We prefer to sign an NDA to give our customers peace of mind when discussing this type of proprietary information.
Our Collaboration Process
The first step in our process will be to conduct component feasibility evaluations. The purpose of this is to ensure that ISL Products is able to provide you with a viable component solution. We want to make sure that the required component request is within our design and manufacturing capabilities without wasting any of your valuable time.
Our DigiKey store has a selection of popular components from planetary gear motors to uv c ballasts that are in-stock and ready to ship. These are a great option early on in the development phase to help reduce lead times.
Next, we move onto the collaborative brainstorming phase. We work with your design and engineering team to fully understand what the most desirable component will be. Effective communication is critical, which is why we discuss ideas, back and forth, until everyone is satisfied. We can do this through the medium of your choice; be it emails, phone calls, or video conferences. Oftentimes, these group discussions lead to a solution that is more innovative than the initial idea.
Once a conceptual idea is agreed upon we will provide detailed component specifications, dimensions, and estimated performance along with pricing and lead time. Once approved, samples can be purchased to test in your physical prototypes. Sample quantities are typically less than 20 pieces, but we are flexible and can provide samples based on your needs.
Once your design is approved, we will “lock in” the component design and begin to finalize the next steps, like production costs and delivery details.
“Our mission is simple: provide customers with value added components customized to their exact specifications” – Ken Kawaller, President
Continued Dedicated Support
Once the design/concept phase is completed, the initial product development consultant is typically not the one contracted to handle the mass production of the finished product. If this is the case, we are happy to transition over to your client or contracted manufacturer of choice and continue to provide them dedicated support for the life of the product. Our customer base consists of many of the world leading OEM’s, original equipment manufacturers.
We provide Just-In-Time inventory programs as well to help streamline the customers’ supply chain.
ISL Products is here to assist industrial electronic product designers bring their clients’ product concept to reality, one component at a time.
