This medical device Control System includes a membrane switch keypad with LED indicators on the keys. The LED's are mounted on the PCB located inside the housing. The microprocessor-controlled electronics drives valves and a motor for automated operation of a medical device. OTI's contributions in this project were industrial design, mechanical and electrical, design, product specification, prototypes, and product testing.

Engineering and manufacturing companies, as well as inventors and entrepreneurs, typically hire product design consultants on a per project basis, often utilizing these companies as strictly a tactical decision to provide a quick fix to some immediate product design problem. As a result, many existing design consulting companies tend to be somewhat impersonal, jumping from one job contract to the next.

OTI's Partnering Philosophy

OTI was established in March of 1995 by individuals seeking to provide an alternative to impersonal and inflexible consulting companies. OTI believes that a union between the client and OTI, based upon a strategic alliance between the two companies, each mutually benefiting the other, is the answer to the problem.

OTI sees partnering with their clients as a long-term relationship where both parties work together. This type of close relationship allows OTI to function as if they were an extension of their client's engineering department.

Full Spectrum Design Consulting And Technical Services

OTI is a full spectrum design consulting and technical services company that provides design and engineering expertise, specializing in the industries of medical, aerospace, industrial and consumer products. OTI's expertise is in project management, new product development, electro-mechanical packaging, mechanisms, test fixture design, and engineering documentation. A full spectrum of product design and development solutions from one company, OTI.

OTI provides the following services;

  • industrial design,
  • mechanical and electrical engineering,
  • software and quality engineering,
  • manufacturing and tooling engineering,
  • project management,
  • finite element analysis (FEA),
  • product testing,
  • engineering documentation,
  • CAD specialist: pro/engineer, solidworks and cadkey,
  • prototypes,
  • tooling,
  • machined parts,
  • production parts,
  • and product manufacturing.

This blow-molded HDPE container has handles for easy holding and structural ribbing to withstand high vacuum conditions. OTI provided the finite element analysis (FEA) to ensure adequate structural rigidity. The proprietary 11/4" ball valve automatically locks in the closed position so the unit cannot accidentally open even when dropped on the ball valve or handle. OTI designed both the container and valve to meet stringent medical device requirements. OTI's contributions in this project were industrial design, mechanical design, FEA, product specification, prototypes, and product testing.

OTI's Design Mall - Best Skilled Professionals

OTI's philosophy is to supply clients with the best skilled professionals for each engineering discipline. To achieve this, OTI often partners with individuals or companies who are experienced professionals in their particular engineering field. They call these industry partners "Technical Partners". These partners comprise OTI's "Design Mall". This staffing strategy, called the "OTI Design Mall" allows OTI to provide its clients with a single point of contact for full service product design utilizing the best skilled professionals for each project. Just like your local shopping mall where you get a variety of stores (services) under one roof.

OTI's Commitment to Quality

OTI performs each design task quickly using their Quality Control Procedures, and efficiently managing each design project so that virtually nothing slips through the cracks. Using their internal controls and client quality reviews, OTI identifies possible areas of improvement which ultimately yields opportunities to save their clients TIME and MONEY. All of this ensures that OTI provides the high quality services their clients expect.

Last but not least, is OTI's commitment to provide "innovative design solutions". It's the experience and skill level of our professionals which provides the imagination and knowledge to solve design problems. Add to that OTI's open environment which stresses personal training, sharing, and the personal collaboration of their professionals, and you have a data bank of design experience from which to draw in providing "innovative design solutions".

For the Inventor OTI provides the services required to get a product "off-the-ground" such as: business plan, pro forma, marketing research, preliminary patent search and, in some cases, capital sources. Plus, we have the engineering resources to design, prototype, test and manufacture your product!
