Engineering Services

Alongside our EMB products, we also provide engineering and design services.

Our services include electro-mechanical engineering and design, mechanisms, prototyping, design validation and testing. With deliverables ranging from full system or subsystems, prototypes, CAD, engineering design documentation, PCBs, software, assembly fixtures, test equipment, sourcing of suppliers, and design recommendations.

Over the years, we also work with Universities to develop custom lab equipment and assist with research projects.

We have a full machine shop and electronics lab in-house, allowing us to quickly and efficiently create proof-of-theory, proof-of-concept, functional prototypes, and short production runs.

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, custom educational lab equipment, telepresence robots, test equipment machines, warehouse robots, to biomedical instrument development.

2 - Do you have prototyping capability?
Yes, we strongly believe that engineering and manufacturing need to work closely together, so we have a well equipped shop with CNC 4 axis milling machine, lathes, 3D printers, laser cutters and engraver, electronics workbenches, and a large number of sensors and 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. 

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 suppliers 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 and are "purely mechanical".
