We usually get involved with projects that have a mechatronics nature, such as robotics. 

Our deliverables often include prototypes, CAD, engineering design documentation, PCBs, software, and design recommendations. We have machine and prototyping shops inhouse.

Additionally, over the years we have assisted major engineering and design consultancy firms with their projects, including Whipsaw, OLogic, and Alogus Innovation and Design.

Frequently Asked Questions (related to our Services)

1 - What are examples of projects Robots5 worked on?
We have assisted our clients with projects ranging from spacecrafts (CubeSats), autonomous car payloads, mechanism designs for capital investment equipment, telepresence robots, test equipment machines, warehouse robots, to biomedical instrument development.

2 - Do you have prototyping capability?
Yes, we have a well equipped shop with CNC 4 axis milling machine, 3D printers, laser cutters, electronics workbenches, and a large number of testing equipment. For a complete list, check our "Capabilities" page.

3 - What fee structure does Robots5 work on?
We are flexible . We usually do Time and Materials (T&M) but also worked in fixed cost projects.
With small overhead and focused engineering team, we can keep our rates competitive! 

4 - Do you subcontract or does Robots5 actually do the work?
We do the work! We only subcontract if part of the project involves a discipline/skill that we are not the best fit. We do have a list of preferred supplies and contractors that we've had excellent experience over the years, to supplement our skills. Additionally, we are happy to work with your supplies and contractors. 

5 - Do you only work in robotics projects?
No, although most of our projects are mechatronics in nature, we also work in projects that don't have electronics or actuators.
