Production development requires a certain finesse that many companies are unable to provide. At NACS, we are not only engineers but a team of innovators with creative solutions, skills and determination to see a project through to the end. NACS’s personnel is experienced with all types of automated manufacturing technologies. Modeling is at the cornerstone of any engineering and design effort. NACS’s team is well versed in 3D solid modeling with Solidworks.
NACS handles all phases and aspects of each project. Beginning with 3-D concepts & prototypes. Then we create the most efficient, smart, cost-effective way to produce the product. The initial innovative and creative solution typically results in great cost savings for our clients. We then build the tools, the electro/mechanical systems, software, and user-interfaces to give you the ideal tooling, semi-automated or completely automated system that is backed with validation, testing (both in-house and on-site), complete setup and training.
