Precision engineering is our specialty.

To ensure your product delivers precise results—time after time—we focus intensely on both precision and manufacturability throughout the entire design and development process.

Take a systematic, proven approach to product development.

At Acorn, we take a systems-level approach to product development. Our engineers have extensive experience with technologies used in medical devices and instrumentation. As a result, both risk and time-to-revenue are reduced.

Systems-level development approach

  • Technical- and business-level understanding of product requirements
  • Deep understanding of the technology, processes, and key tolerances and sensitivities of variables
  • Holistic, system-level architecture that defines subsystems, interfaces, and handoffs
  • Detailed subsystem design; integration subsystems into an overall product design
  • In parallel, design for manufacturability and assembly to mitigate volume production risks

Medical technology expertise

  • Microfluidics
  • Temperature, humidity, vibration, and other environmental controls
  • Robotics, material handling, and precision motor control
  • Sensing technology
