Design & Analysis

GDE offers mechanical design, analysis and documentation services to our customers how and when they need it.  Below is a list of our design and analysis core competencies:

  • Machined, fabricated, injection molded, cast, wire formed, stamped part/assembly design and documentation
  • Tolerance studies
  • Material and finish selection
  • PCBA mechanical design
  • Cable mechanical design
  • PCBA and chassis level electronics cooling analysis/simulation
  • Heatsink design
  • Transient thermal analysis/simulation

Do you have a new product idea that requires mechanical analysis, design or documentation support?  Do you need a specialized analysis completed or surge capacity?  Is your company still growing and needs mechanical design support to complement your existing staff?  GDE is here to help in whatever capacity our customers need.

Mechanical Simulation/Analysis

GDE can provide your mechanical design and documentation needs from a single piece part to complex mechanical assemblies.  We support everything from simple drawing reviews to identify cost down opportunities all the way to turning product concepts into a design and documentation package that will make it a reality.  GDE staff has been named inventors on over 50 patents, has experience in engineered material design, such as composites, is proficient in designing for cost and has experience across many different industries including medical device, defense, semi-conductor, computer, telecom, energy and commercial.  Whatever your challenge, reach out to GDE so we can discuss your needs and provide solutions that are custom designed for you.


Mechanical simulation/analysis is sometimes required to make sure your design will work as intended.  In some cases, it does not make sense for our customers to maintain full-time analysists on their staff.  GDE understands this and has invested in making the analysis resources our customers need accessible and affordable.  Our team of experienced mechanical analysts can provide thermal analysis of parts or assemblies.  Need electronics cooling, heat-sink design or transient thermal analysis? Our experienced professionals are here to help you with your simulation needs.
