Pegasus Design

Machine Design

Although we specialize in optical engineering, our clients have much broader needs than just packaging the optics. We try to find as many ways as possible to make ourselves useful. These needs can include:

  • Precision positioning systems with multiple degrees-of-freedom
  • Vacuum chambers and pumping systems for high or ultra-high vacuum
  • Steel space frames, lifting and handling fixtures
  • Stress analysis using ProMechanica
  • Plastic injection-molded outer-casework to make a product more aesthetically pleasing
  • Electronic packages to control stepper motors or sensors
  • Cable harnesses to communicate with positioning and sensing components
  • Technical documentation
  • Engineering models

We can develop a project from a seemingly random collection of ideas to a completely refined assembly by using the following process:

  • Conceptual design
  • Detail design layout
  • Stress analysis as required
  • Formal design review
  • Final design layout
  • Creation of detail fabrication drawings
  • Final client review
  • Component procurement
  • Assembly and check-out
  • Low volume production
