Testing can validate that we have met our goals or demonstrate when and why we haven’t. However, only by ensuring that the design being tested is truly great can we exceed those goals. Archetype Joint is unique in that their focus on joint development and testing resulted from twenty-five years of product development and manufacturing experience. This allows us to better understand our client’s needs and perspectives.

Pick the Right Assembly Process

Before worrying about the details of that screw boss, are you sure screws are the best way to design that joint? Joint design and testing is all we do, so we can probably help.

  Lower Assembly Costs
