SIGMADESIGN utilizes full model shop capabilities for product development and many other client needs. Our concept through production, in-house services include expertise in fabrication and manufacturing technologies. We deliver custom, high-quality parts per the needs of our clients.
Support the Gorge Technology Alliance (GTA) in the 2022 GTA Annual Awards, which will include nominations for the Tech Leader of the Year award and the STEM Education Leader of the Year award.
The Tech Leader (Individual or Company) of the Year award is intended to recognize outstanding achievement on the part of an individual or company that principally provides technology products, services, or support in the Columbia River Gorge. All technology sectors are eligible, as are sectors not traditionally characterized as technological if the individual/ company has an extraordinary commitment to innovation or using technology.
Nomination forms must be received no later than November 15, 2022!

It was a great evening at the PNDC Annual Dinner networking and reconnecting with our friends and business partners!
Erica Bogard from SIGMADESIGN, the incoming Board Chair for PNDC, spoke about the future of PNDC including: expanding into more of the PNW (Oregon, WA, Montana and Idaho) and continuing to have an international presence.
Thanks to all the @PNDC staff and members that helped with organizing this fantastic event once again!

Mondays are always a little spooky, but especially when your coworkers come to the office in costume. Let me tell you, we're all a little more alert today, and it's because there are some spooky spooky folks in our offices. Also because it's Halloween.
Today we held a monster mashup in-person and virtual Halloween Costume Contest! Participants from our various offices collaborated on group costumes, and during our all-hands meeting, we voted on a winner! The Seattle Things took the crown (and probably a bag of skittles or something).
SIGMADESIGN is working with the City of Pendleton to develop support services at the Range to serve customer needs on-site by providing part or component repairs, builds, engineering and development. A shop facility at Pendleton Unmanned Aircraft Systems Range (PUR) is being added along with access to product development support services. Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) products currently being tested at the range include innovations in defense, technology, agriculture, communications and medical industries. This partnership will provide enhanced engineering, integration, CAD modeling, and rapid prototyping.

SIGMADESIGN is at the #ausa2022 Show in Washington DC! Sigma Design, Product Design and Engineering is happy to share about our service offerings as part of the Pacific Northwest Defense Coalition (PNDC) shared booth. Come see us at #4007! Meet Erica Bogard, John Schlottmann, and Jeff Kuehne from SIGMADESIGN.
The Association of the United States Army - AUSA Annual Meeting is the largest land power exposition and professional development forum in North America. Taking place from October 10-12, 2022, the Annual Meeting delivers the Army’s message by highlighting the capabilities of organizations and presenting a wide range of industry products and services.
Hope to see you at a networking event or at our booth 4007 for a hands-on discussion!
Getting parts fast can be paramount to your business. Laser cutting and sheet metal bending both yield a variety of options for metal part production. Types of work may include brackets, gussets, boxes, braces, supports, or enclosures to name a few. With machines in-house we can reduce fabrication lead times, and ensure controlled quality of parts.
Our hydraulic CNC press brake is capable of very precise bends and folds in sheet metals regardless of thickness. In combination with our fiber laser, this allows for accelerated turnaround on prototyping and manufacturing.
If you need a quote for parts, send us an inquiry at firstname.lastname@example.org. We provide reduced fabrication lead times and control product quality.
Did you know that our model shop services include 3D printing? As an engineering firm that specializes in product development from concept through production, SIGMADESIGN considers the MJF Printer a huge asset to the firm’s offerings. We’re able to provide 3D printed parts to a variety of clients that need quick, custom parts.
Additionally, the ability to produce parts similar to production-grade quality allows us to streamline our design process. Overall, a faster design cycle, quality printing, freedom of design, and economical solutions makes using the MJF a valuable addition for our product development offerings.

How do you know that your product will be fully functional? It’s important to conduct test analysis early in the product development life to avoid arriving at a defective product.
Identifying potential defects during testability analysis, specifically during requirements definition will be cheaper than if the bug is found later in the development cycle after the code has been written.
A Regression Test is a test done on a program to confirm that a developer’s change didn't interrupt or break any existing functionality. This is done to ensure the product works fine with new functionality, bug fixes or any change in the existing features.

Part cost, assembly cost, and reliability are some of the factors that drive the differences between engineering a product for a low volume versus a high volume production. How are production volumes used to determine manufacturing processes? What are some of the differences between low and high volume product designs? What are some of the greater implications and considerations when planning to produce a high volume product? Let’s explore these questions.
Read more on the subject of product manufacturing in our blog post (Part 1 of a 3-part series). In this first segment, we dive into defining production volumes, and explore examples of selecting a manufacturing process for a product such as sheet metal, or CNC machining vs. die casting. Finally, we’ll look at DFX to understand more design considerations for higher volume manufacturing. DFX is a Lean Six Sigma term adopted by many to describe focus on specific design attributes.

Do you need a part that is now obsolete? Do you want to make a perfect accessory for a product already in existence? Do you want to measure your machined parts to ensure their quality? If the answer is yes to any of these or other similar needs, we can help.
SIGMADESIGN's metrology department uses an ATOS 3D Scanner to provide valuable capabilities for our clients ranging from 3D scanning to measurement and automated inspection processes.
We can use the ATOS professional software to generate a surface comparison map of the actual part to the CAD file that can be used to evaluate 3 dimensional variations. The ATOS allows for reporting the slightest deviations from the original part or 3D model. We can then use that data to 3D print and verify parts as needed.
The ATOS 3D scanner provides the basis for a diverse range of measuring tasks including:
+ Improving our GD&T profiling and QA process
+ Measuring organic shapes more accurately and efficiently
+ Reverse engineering obsolete parts
+ Designing test fixtures that perfectly pair with a product
+ Facilitating accessory design for products not designed by us
