Thorough and efficient mechanical and materials research is integral to everything we do at CAElliott. Effective innovations are often built on foundations of existing knowledge applied in novel ways. Our extensive knowledge of mechanisms, materials, processes, and manufacturing methods have been accumulated from decades of experience to prepare us to support you on your next innovation.

Materials Specifications

Selecting the right type of plastic or the best metal alloy for the job can be the difference between success and failure. CAElliott designers know how to find materials information from standards, handbooks, and a network of R&D partners who are at the leading edge of materials technology.

• Performance Based Polymer Selections
• Metal Alloys for Strength and Toughness
• Ceramics for High Temperature and Wear

Process Specifications

Our engineers consider the critical details of exactly how the design will be built and finished. We have expertise in coatings, heat treatment, texturing, plating and painting. If your product needs some custom finishing, we can help you develop and specify a process for it.

• Coatings for Corrosion and Wear Resistance
• Heat Treating for Durability
• Custom Finishes for Aesthetics

Emerging Technology

We are very active in supporting and developing emerging technologies through applied research. We work with our valued partners to provide effective solutions to their complex challenges. We strive to continuously innovate to provide better solutions for a better world.

• Electro-Photonic Integration
• Autonomous Vehicle Development
• Interstellar Sensing Equipment

Receding Technology

Sometimes the appropriate technology for a new project has already been developed. Having a deep knowledge of older technologies can help to prevent needless reinvention and save developers from chasing intellectual property that is unlikely to materialize.

• Custom Motorcycle Parts
• Rankine Cycle Engines
• Cobalt Teletherapy Equipment

Client satisfaction is our highest aim.
