Solutions to Complex Engineering Problems
does Innovative Thermal Solutions offer?
services range from turnkey product development projects to simple
problem solving. We can do as much or as little as you need to insure
you receive the best value. And the best part is that when we are done,
we leave. No need to increase your ongoing engineering overhead. We
provide qualified engineering solutions and product development when
and where you need it.
Product and Technology Development
Innovative Thermal Solutions
has extensive experience designing and developing mechanical and heat
transfer products. From ideation and concept development to high volume
production, we have experience and expertise in every phase of the
development and production process.
development capabilities and facilities include:
analysis and computer modeling
We perform stress and strain analysis of
components or assemblies, both steady state and transient heat transfer
analysis, and steady and unsteady fluid flow. We
model and optimize HVAC systems using state of the art system

3D CAD design, modeling and
all design work using 3D CAD modeling. We are able to exchange design
model data with all major CAD systems and we have the ability to work
together collaboratively on CAD models in real time.
know how to accelerate your rate of innovation, and we use more than
rapid computational and simulation techniques to do so. Innovative
Thermal Solutions employs an integrated approach involving industrial
design, mechanical and thermal analysis, materials selection,
electrical systems and controls. Our tools, personnel and experience
provide for rapid and accurate component and system engineering. Our
affiliates include controls engineers with experience ranging from
breadboard layout to PLC programming to design and fully documented
specification of embedded controllers. Our materials expertise includes
metals, plastics, fibers, insulation, adhesives, coatings and
treatments. The team's broad application knowledge and inside
relationships with leading equipment manufacturers afford Innovative
Thermal Solutions a perspective helpful in both cost reduction and
fabrication and assembly
Fully staffed and equipped
workshops are available to produce proof of concepts and prototypes of
your product, allowing you and your customers to fully comprehend the
product, its value and promise. Using our tools, we can reduce the
total development time and expose critical design issues early in the
cycle. Innovative Thermal Solutions has a wealth of experience in this
process for many types of mechanical and thermal systems and projects.
Innovative Thermal Solutions
offers a fully staffed and certified testing laboratory capable of
conducting industry standard sanitation and safety assessments, such as
NSF and UL tests, or customer-specific performance tests including
ASHRAE, ARI, vibration and shipping. Our labs are certified to perform
internationally recognized agency tests, and we continue to
expand evaluation services into all areas of electrical, food,
industrial and life science safety.
sound chambers, controlled ambient rooms, calorimeters and air-flow
tunnels allow us to administer a comprehensive plan to ensure critical
tests are passed early in the program.
- Our mechanical
labs measure product performance and quality. The team's
expertise includes fatigue and failure analysis, sound and vibration,
materials evaluation, and chemical analysis.
- Our systems have
the capacity for rapid and voluminous data collection, and our
broadband connection makes communicating with clients, regardless of
location, a snap. Most importantly, our engineers possess the knowledge
for transforming data into information.

Improvement and Problem Solving
Obtain financially measurable results through
reductions in defects, cycle time and cost by utilizing problem solving
that implements irreversible corrective action.
Innovative Thermal Solutions is experienced in
selecting and applying the latest in quality improvement tools and
techniques in a team based, participative management environment to
obtain significant improvements in quality levels, productivity, and
cost on both the factory floor and in the office. Tools and techniques
include Six Sigma, ISO/QS compliance, structured problem solving, and
Quality Function Deployment (QFD).
We can help you reduce working capital and defect
rates, increase inventory turns, improve quality and on-time shipping
performance and response times. All these cost savings flow to the
bottom line to improve your profitability immediately. We can
help you apply Lean Manufacturing and Demand Flow Manufacturing
principles to existing or new production processes.
Innovative Thermal Solutions will help you develop
a culture of continuous improvement and increase customer satisfaction.
Using a proven phase/gate approach, we work with you to develop a
project plan, then manage your project to that plan.
