Engineering Services

From Design
To Delivery

ALMACO is both a full-service manufacturing partner as well as an expert engineering firm all in one. Whether you are looking for a full solution from concept to delivery or just looking for a quality team to build components, we have the experience, skills, and tenacity to see it done right every time.


Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering

Our mechanical design engineers specialize in creating detailed designs for machines, components, or systems. See your ideas come to life with modern 3D CAD modeling tools like SolidWorks and innovative engineering design techniques coupled with rapid prototyping.

Electrical Engineering

Electrical Engineering

Electrical engineering innovators and problem solvers at ALMACO design and apply electrical systems and integrate electronic devices. From power generation, transmission, controls, machine communications, computer systems, and more— our electrical engineering experts develop solutions to meet your specific requirements.

Software Engineering

Software Engineering

Software engineering is the development, design, maintenance, testing, and evaluation of software systems. Efficient, reliable, and scalable software solutions address system requirements in a user-friendly format.

Our Process

Product Engineering

Each engineering project is unique, and we treat it that way. The development process for each component or product begins where you are, whether just starting out with an idea or even if you’re already in the middle of a project. We work with you on your needs, expectations, and requirements to deliver exceptional engineering services every time.

First and foremost, we listen. asking questions and repeating what we have heard to ensure we understand your needs. We focus on your ideas and work to deepen our understanding of your concepts, goals, and requirements by asking questions and repeating what we heard. We understand that each project and partner is unique and so we adapt to maximize your objectives, development experience, and innovative vision.

Connecting your objectives with our expertise, we develop an engineering proposal for your project. The proposal is scoped based on your need and highlights how we will help transition your innovative ideas from concept to reality.

Our engineering team comes together to develop a conceptual design that meets or exceeds previously agreed upon criteria. Keeping manufacturing best practices in mind, we also make sure the design will be efficient and cost effective to produce.

With the conceptual design approved, our cross-functional engineering team creates the design in a specialty Computer Aid Design (CAD) program, called SolidWorks. With a modern, iterative design process, our team seeks solutions that meet objectives. We support design efficiencies that will improve material costs, identify and remediate any stress points and interferences, and provide a greater visualization of the final product outcome.

A functional prototype is developed with your bottom line in mind. Our team adjusts the scale of these activities based on the development phase and project goals, minimizing risk and cost by evaluating key aspects early and consistently. If possible, we use standard componentry and hardware, or materials that we know can be used across multiple products in your company. Our full manufacturing capabilities are available in the form of state-of-the-art laser cutters, CNC machines, lathes, 3D printers, and more.

The functional prototype moves into performance testing and product validation. Our engineering team works with you on any final adjustments prior to moving the product to the production phase. All modifications are completed with changes clearly documented.

Documentation is your roadmap to production success and sustainability. We provide you with your 3D CAD files, specifications, schematics, bill of materials (BOM), assembly instructions, and other product development materials or data we have developed in the project. We work closely with you to align on quality assurance checklists to ensure each item meets your quality expectations.

What makes ALMACO stand out as an engineering partner is that we are a one-stop, full-service provider. Because we are already familiar with your requirements and have produced a functional prototype, our clients often find the transition to production more seamless, efficient, and cost effective.

If you do have a preferred manufacturer or if you’d rather handle production in your own company, we support that too! We will work with you on a smooth transition and hand-off.
