Gemini Marine Products commissioned the AMC to design and manufacture a tube crimping station for connecting stainless tubing to their patended hinge system for Marine awnings and shades.  This crimping system replaces a manufacturing process that involved drilling out each piece and fasting with roll pins.  The result was a 60% increase in productivity for the production line.

Electronic Tuning Fork

ETF Electrical Chassis ETF In Hand

ETF Powered On ETF Actuator

O’Brien Medical partnered with The Maine Technology Institute (MTI) and the AMC to develop a modern testing device for diabetic peripheral neuropathy, or damaged or deteriorating nerves in the feet of diabetics.  The condition all too often can lead to foot ulcers and eventual foot amputation.  The current practice of using tuning forks is subjective leaves too much room for human error.  This device will eliminate the guesswork, and produce consistent results from user to user.

EKLIPSE Clips

     

 

EKLIPSE, LLC contacted the Advanced Manufacturing Center to aid in refining the design of a new type of clothespin targeted towards the American and European markets.  This clothespin will be more ergonomic, robust, and easy to use and care for than traditional spring based wooden and plastic clothespins commonly used today.  EKLIPSE received assistance from the AMC in collaboration with private vendors in developing a 3D model, FEA simulations of performance, recommendations in initial base materials, and finally transferring this knowledge to industry for tooling and injection molding of the product.
