Contract Manufacturing Services

Often Consumer Goods, Industrial, and Medical manufacturing organizations place an increased emphasis on reducing the time to transition products from design to manufacturing while simultaneously reducing the product technical risks. Unfortunately, most manufacturers also follow a serial process for completing the detailed design. Manufacturability is often not formally addressed because it is treated as an additional step that requires extra engineering effort and delays completion of the product definition. MiQ’s manufacturing expertise can be used to your advantage by assisting your team during the design phase of your products development. Our team will work with your product designers to optimize the parts or processes required to manufacture your product. This assistance will result in a system that is efficient because of the equipment required and the subsequent overall capital cost incurred.

MiQ can design and build custom semi to fully automated equipment to meet almost any system, manufacturing or process need you have. We will work with you to fully define your needs and take your new product from “idea to market” by creating the technologically appropriate manufacturing solution, following the process referenced below.
