Product and Equipment Design

ProSolve evaluates alternative designs and develops cutting-edge solutions to design problems. We explore configurations, examine and analyze different geometries and materials, and investigate options early in the design cycle.

Whether you seek assistance to develop a prototype for a product you intend to bring to the market or you need a custom piece of equipment for your shop, ProSolve can provide the service and skills you require to move forward.

  • Metal Structure, Skid and Frame Design – ProSolve designs metal structures, skids and frames for which detailed fabrication drawings are provided.
  • Industrial Prototypes – ProSolve designs new equipment and machinery, and offers the skill and expertise to complete large and small industrial prototypes.


3D Modeling and Drafting


Using the latest 3D modelling, design and drafting software, ProSolve produces highly-detailed 3D models of parts and assemblies.

This provides the opportunity to visualize and validate engineered designs before they are put into production.

The final product is viewed in a virtual environment and product layout is verified before fabrication occurs.



ProSolve creates flat-layouts for forming and exports the design to formats compatible with CNC machinery or files appropriate for injection moulding, laser cutting, or any other automatic fabricating process.

Drawings include all relevant fabrication details, including welding and tolerances appropriate to machining, forming, assembly or other fabrication processes.

Detailed fabrication drawings are then generated from these models when the design is finalized.


ProSolve uses software products such as:

  • AutoCAD Mechanical & Electrical,
  • Autodesk Inventor Professional,
  • Autodesk Naviswork  & Nastran in CAD for FEA analysis.

We use Inventor Professional for BIM (Building Information Modeling) project & collaboration including the Future of AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction).


Finite Element Analysis

Through modelling and simulation of real-world conditions, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) helps lower the risk of product failure without the expense of physical prototypes.

FEA design validation can be a requirement for some designs under the jurisdiction of a regulatory body, such as ABSA or Transport Canada.
