Many companies with their own internal engineering departments are making the decision to leverage outsourced project engineering services as well. Whether it be for an extra hand to meet deadlines, or providing technical expertise for anything from basic CAD design and modelling projects to high level FEA and CFD analysis, project engineering services provide unique benefits that can be a part of every company’s engineering strategy.

Adapting to rapid company growth is certainly not a bad problem to have, but may still create significant logistical issues. TriMech’s client, a fast-growing company specializing in thermal batteries for the defense and aerospace industry, was seeking to add an engineer to perform thermal analysis after a successful relationship with TriMech’s Project Engineering Team. Company leadership recognized the opportunity to further utilize TriMech Staffing to source technical candidates that their internal team struggled to find. Since then, TriMech has placed both contract and permanent roles for multiple positions including manufacturing, mechanical, and non-destructive testing engineers, allowing the company to drive its business goals and meet customer demands.
[Somers, CT – May 2022] Excellerant, Inc. and TriMech are partnering to give Excellerant’s Collaborative Manufacturing Platform™ wider distribution across the U.S. and Canada. Excellerant’s suite of data collection gathering, monitoring, and reporting hardware and software tools are gaining awareness among manufacturers looking for reliable shop connectivity solutions.

Manufacturers, along with most employers, have been hit with low morale during the COVID-19 pandemic. The change in work and life balance has resulted in a large decrease of working employees in manufacturing. This issue has been termed "The Great Resignation". In this article, we will explain what that means and specifically what manufacturers can do to maintain a successful business.

Many family owned businesses rely on “word-of-mouth” recommendations for hiring, but this method is often very time consuming, especially for more advanced positions. TriMech’s client, a family-owned company specializing in industrial agricultural equipment, was seeking to add a SOLIDWORKS Designer to their team after previously only outsourcing their engineering needs. Despite never having used a staffing company before, the leadership team recognized the opportunity in a technical staffing service and utilized the TriMech Staffing team to find a qualified candidate. TriMech has since helped the company place a total of four engineers and they have plans to utilize the service for future needs.

Engineering services come in multiple formats that can benefit almost any industry. While the word "engineer" typically brings to mind pictures of complex coding and mechanical designs, the scope of what an engineer can do is much broader. From the use of scanning and printing devices to project management services, companies can benefit in a variety of ways from engineering services.

We have recently seen the release of several new additive manufacturing technologies from Stratasys that are going to have a major impact on both the R&D and manufacturing world. There are 3D printers for every step of the production cycle – from design to prototype, tooling and molding, assembly jigs and test fixtures, to even end-use production. Over the past few years, 3D printing has quickly evolved from being strictly a tool for rapid prototyping into a legitimate option for mass production. No single technology is the best for all steps of the manufacturing process but every industrial-grade additive technology excels at something. While the technologies have been advancing leaps and bounds, it’s taken much longer for the software that controls these machines to keep up.
As technology continues to advance, industries have found new ways of integrating these technologies to improve their manufacturing processes. Traditional manufacturing has been based on the use of dedicated production lines, which limits the flexibility that these manufacturing processes can have. Through advanced manufacturing, companies are making use of technologies and techniques to gain a competitive edge. In order to achieve this level of competitiveness and flexibility, one must understand how the wide spectrum of relevant technologies available can be integrated towards a focused goal.
