3D CT Scanner
A medical imaging startup in Rochester, NY developed an innovative approach for low-dose breast and extremity 3D CT scanning. The customer commissioned PEKO to commercialize the existing prototype design for manufacturability, safety, durability, ease-of- installation, and serviceability, while improving the unit’s critical performance characteristics.
400kW Fuel Cell Enclosure
Development & Contract Manufacturing
A global diversified equipment manufacturer had an on-site fuel cell enclosure application. Attempts at offshoring such a large and complex product proved fruitless. With difficult size and environmental requirements (i.e., withstanding 120 mph winds, a snow load of 2.9 kPa, extreme hot, extreme cold, rain, humidity), the company chose PEKO to develop and manufacture the enclosures for the fuel cell systems.
An early stage medical start-up got involved with PEKO through our relationship with an entrepreneur incubator. The business’ leaders had little manufacturing experience and needed PEKO’s expertize to develop a cost-effective production solution. The product’s initial aesthetically pleasing design was not conducive to large-scale production manufacturing. PEKO was challenged to balance cost and function with a visually appealing product.
Flexographic Plate Developer
An existing, long term partner of PEKO was looking to make significant upgrades to their current print industry product, as well as utilize PEKO’s production manufacturing capabilities. This global chemical company needed to leverage PEKO’s broad spectrum of capabilities to allow for a seamless transition of production, while simultaneously improving their product.
Helmet Production Process
PEKO engaged in a relationship with a mid-sized defense equipment manufacturer to develop a production manufacturing process for a new product. The customer had insufficient resources to develop an effective, consistent, production-ready manufacturing process for a military grade product, which was to be mass produced. PEKO was able to collaborate with this costumer to establish the critical parameters and develop the solution for this very specific & unique fabrication technique.
Hot Bar Process
The northeast division of a Fortune 500 company, who has been a partner for years, challenged PEKO to fully automate a production process, which previously had been accomplished manually. This multiple step, highly precise, process development leveraged PEKO’s roots in automation and test systems. The goal of the new automated process was to improve through-put, consistency, and quality of the completed product.
A midsize company from the food and beverage industry was not only looking for supplier with strong manufacturing capabilities, but also engineering support to improve their machines’ designs and meet regulatory constraints. PEKO’s product development engineering and vast regulatory experience, combined with world class manufacturing facilities proved to be an obvious choice for the customer.
MRI Radiation Therapy
A medical start-up company looking to transform cancer treatment partnered with PEKO to leverage our engineering resources, large scale manufacturing capabilities, and ISO 13485 compliance. The business’s core science was well defined, however they needed PEKO’s experience to develop a production worthy design, which would allow their technology to consistently provide the highest quality results, while meeting stringent medical industry requirements. The critical nature of this design and application was paramount.
Narcotics and Supply Dispensing Units
Turnkey Product Imaging
A leading global pharmaceutical distributor hired PEKO, an ISO 13485 registered Contract Manufacturer, to redesign and manufacture an automated medical supply dispensing and inventory management system. This system featured a high degree of mechanical and electro-mechanical complexity and production volumes of 100s of units per year.
PEKO partnered with a medium sized OEM company who produces a highly precise piece of industrial equipment, predominately for customers in the semi-conductor industry. The company had become overly reliant on a single supplier and associated assembly, which accounted for a large portion of their product. This OEM needed to control their own destiny, by developing a new machine platform independent from that supplier. PEKO’s combination of broad engineering experience and complete production manufacturing capability, while allowing the customer to maintain complete ownership of their product was the perfect match.
Physical Therapy Device
A young, west-coast start-up partnered with PEKO to develop their new product. The company’s initial prototype design was not suitable for production manufacturing and they needed PEKO’s help. The electro-mechanical medical device was a great fit to utilize PEKO’s engineering experience and manufacturing capabilities. As an early start-up, commercial constraints were also a factor in the customer’s selection process.
Software for Industrial Equipment
PEKO was approached by an industrial equipment company to enhance their product with software improvements to their user-interface and database. This small-sized business did not have the internal resources necessary to complete the software programming and enlisted PEKO to solve the problem. The additional features would simplify and improve the end-user experience and broaden the product’s market.
Solar Crystal Growth Furnace
Development & Contract Manufacturing
An emerging global provider of silicon equipment for the solar market had an extremely aggressive timetable to populate their production plants with equipment. They needed a reliable product design and manufacturer that could scale production of the highly complex cutting edge machines.
An early stage start-up company within the telecommunications industry was looking to have a prototype assembly evolve into a production-ready unit that could be mass produced efficiently, to populate the market. PEKO became involved with this partner through our relationship with a start-up and innovation incubator. Our electrical engineering capabilities and experience with industrial regulatory codes, combined with our in-house controls (electrical) build group, resulted in a great fit for this challenge.
Vapor Mitigation System
With increased focus on green technology, a global chemical company required a solution for the condensate vapor produced by their thermal flexographic printing plate processor. Since the unit was already in the field, a retrofit unit needed to be designed for new and existing models.
