YOUR 3D PRINTING AND DEVELOPMENT PARTNER
TekRex is the Development arm for six TyRex Technology Family companies, and offers the same services to external entities to help them develop technologies that bring their winning ideas to life. We begin by evaluating the business case around your idea and assist with design considerations.
A company making secure devices needed a hardware screw that would prevent easy access to the devices. Using 3D printing, TekRex quickly delivered a part with a custom bit pattern that could not be bought, at a price point only slightly higher than an off the shelf part.
A company making water quality test probes needed complex parts made that could withstand the rigors of underwater use. TekRex was able to not only increase the part quality, but save on cost at the same time.
A customer specializing in microwave technology needed an overmold to protect a delicate cable breakout, but tooling costs and lead times left them with nothing but bad options. TekRex designed and printed a custom housing, then worked through sister company iRex for the final cable assembly to deliver a cost-effective solution to the customer in under a week.
Concordia University Texas visualized a special commemoration for its upcoming centennial anniversary – a replication of an original cornerstone on its campus to serve as a reminder for key funders and stakeholders. Research and design by TekRex provided a highly-customized, high-quality and cost-effective ‘wow’ factor for university supporters to commemorate its 100-year anniversary.
Austin’s children’s museum, Thinkery, wanted to make a splash with centerpieces at their annual Imaginarium fundraiser. TekRex created a custom piggy bank and printed a limited run on time and under budget.
A fiber optic cable manufacturer wanted to design their own version of a testing product called a loopback, avoiding high prices and large inventory levels that come with off-the-shelf products. Using 3D printing and TekRex design engineering, the manufacturer keeps inventory and associated costs to a minimum.
A tech company specializing in IoT sensors for industrial applications needed to design an enclosure for their new system that would allow for extra durability in harsh environments. With a focus on test engineering during prototyping, the product launch was successful and production now boasts a 99% pass rate.
An autonomous driving simulator uses a custom, highly dense fiber optic cassette, which needs to be performance tested. TekRex created a test fixture solution: including both the software and hardware.
A manufacturer needed to test devices that attach to their industrial motors along several stages in the potting process. TekRex took the core design and created a new solution using a combination of off-the-shelf parts and custom 3D printing.
A client designed an autonomous forklift that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to navigate warehouses independent of human control. The client utilized TekRex’s Engineering Staffing services to help diagnose and resolve some electrical cabling issues that they were experiencing with the autonomous forklift prototype.
When an automotive manufacturer was in need of an outdoor rated camera solution for a video surveillance application, TekRex prototype and development experts transformed a high-level rough scope of work into a tangible product line, meeting the client’s expectations.
High-level specifications and requirements combined with a short schedule prompted a test and measurement manufacturer to seek TekRex’s expert engineering assistance with their semiconductor applicable RF amplifier.
A test and measurement company needed help redesigning a fiber optic connector holder. TekRex produced a part made of RoHS compliant material and was designed in a way that ensured consistency and quality.
When a company was needing a customization method for off-the-shelf enclosures for their products, TekRex engineering guidance paired this company’s production challenge with the right machine solution and instruction process.
When a client in the heavy machinery industry was needing to make custom modifications to their machinery to support AI functionality, TekRex designed a tool that optimized the assembly process.
