Hello, and thanks for visiting...
After we decide on a project we begin by building a functional prototype in our well equipped machine shop. We like to build it and try it in order to get a feel for a technology.
If it works well, we move forward.
Henry Works takes pride in finding inexpensive ways to get this done. Things are occasionally "over-engineered" these days and we like to start with the basics....the goal is a working model to prove the concept and then we TRY IT. Often, this approach is actually faster than going into full 3D CAD (which we also do if the project needs it at a later point).
After the first prototype, should the project warrant it, HW will hire industrial designers to make it look nice and also to make the mechanisms as elegant and simple as possible. Then additional and more refined prototypes are built.
The next step is to apply for Intellectual Property (IP) in the form of patents and trademarks and begin building a "brand" for the product.
The final goal is to find a well established Company to handle manufacturing, marketing and distribution. This company would pay a royalty to HW. HW would maintain and defend its patents as well as support the Company in developing logical evolutions to the machine.
Hopefully the machine or product becomes a HUGE success!
