We are experts in the design, development and implementation of emerging technology. Our projects have ranged from consumer/commercial technology products, medical devices, lab equipment, IoT and wearable devices.
We are involved through the entire design process, from product architecture, to conceptualization, development, prototyping and production support. We pride ourselves on developing products for manufacturability that are cost optimized to make the transition to production as seamless as possible.
WHAT WE DO
WE PROVIDE DESIGN AND ENGINEERING SERVICES RELATED TO TECHNOLOGY PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT.
How well do you know your market? How well do you know your customers? Let us help you find out. At Produktworks, we use our successful research process to discover (and uncover) true customer needs and how it may impact your product. But raw data is not very useful. We take our research findings and develop a road map for you that will drive the decision making steps, clarify your product strategy and optimize the design and development process.
We specialize in high value and high level design and engineering services. We provide design and engineering solutions, advanced conceptual development and product architecture. We excel at finding solid, reliable solutions to complex design and engineering problems. We are engineers and designers; thinkers and tinkerers. Have a particularly vexing problem you need help with? Give us a call.
We don’t believe in just producing pretty pictures. We want to ensure that your product is engineered for ease of use, cost optimization and manufacturability. Our staff have developed products for many technology companies, from forward-thinking start-ups to Fortune 500 companies, so we understand the different challenges you may face.

MOTION COMPUTING-RFID MODULE
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, USA, Motion Computing® is a global leader in integrated mobile technologies for vertical markets including utilities, healthcare, construction, public safety, and retail. With a complete lineup of ruggedized tablet PCs, accessories, software and wireless infrastructure, Motion empowers mobile workers at the point of service.
Motion came to Produktworks to help develop the EasyConnect Long Range RFID Reader for their F5 and C5 tablets. This module delivers the mobility and productivity of a hand-held RFID Reader device with the flexibility and functionality of a powerful PC. We designed and engineered a rugged housing to match the tablet and worked with their vendor to develop a custom RFID antenna and PCB that was needed for the extended range.
The Area-51 desktop represented a new direction in Alienware’s product line, combining jaw-dropping aesthetics with ground-breaking technology in a custom chassis that is designed to impress, both visually and technologically.
d:e approached us to help them engineer their cutting edge design language for Alienware. Working with the conceptual sketches, we developed a CAD database that would later be used for product rendering and manufacturing. While staying true to their design, we also had to ensure ease of manufacturability and a logical part breakup for use in detailed engineering design.
