Automotive Manufacturing

The R&D Tax Credit can provide an immediate source of cash as well as a significant reduction to current and future years’ federal and state tax liabilities.

Automotive Tool & Die Custom Manufacturer

Our client was required to design and develop new features including a zip-tie cutter, carbon scraper, hammer, cap crimpers, wire cutters, removable and replaceable C4 punches, and AR15 disassembly pins. The company faced numerous uncertainties involved with development of the new features. They designed prototypes and conducted benchmark testing of various designs to determine the optimal results. The company was also uncertain as to which process was best in the forming of a new type of scraper which required new tooling. Furthermore, they were uncertain as to whether a hammer could be utilized without causing damage to the tool.

Automotive Safety Manufacturer

This company manufactures data acquisition sensors for automotive safety applications. Much of the company’s experimental process is conducted through high-impact crash testing. In an ongoing effort to improve crash-testing accuracy, the company designed a tilt sensor to be implanted inside a crash-test dummy. With careful regard to human weight and measurement (calculated by observing cadavers), the team of engineers and software developers designed custom firmware capable of recording accurate data during high-impact crashes that could be retrieved for safety analysis.
