Your strategic partner for custom electronics tasks :

Dozens of companies use Henway as their rapid spinup electrical engineering department. Whether you have no in-house capability at all or just need to augment your team, we can be available to meet your clients’ needs on time and under budget.

To get started, schedule a meeting to speak with us about your project. We’ll discuss:

  • Size and weight restrictions
  • Production cost targets
  • What about the product is unique
  • Where you are at in the project
  • What do you need before your next deadline
  • Timelines

With this information, we’ll provide you with a detailed proposal including milestones, cost, and timeline.

Compact design challenges are easy with CAD :

Ergonomic designs are no challenge. We import and export DXF, IGES, and STEP files so that you can design a sleeker product. We use Autodesk Fusion 360 PCB software with capabilities to push circuit board changes to other Fusion users in real-time.

 

Our engineers are great at miniaturizing design when size is the driving factor. We have experience with every IC package ever made and know exactly where to start when miniaturization is the goal.

Custom 3D PCB CAD in 3 Days :

For when you need results FAST! When working with mechanical and industrial designers, we always begin with a preliminary part placement study. Preliminary part placement is a 3D model of the PCB consisting of just the main PCB components such as the processor, connectors, indicator LEDs, and other user-facing components. Changes are quick and easy this early in the development phase so we resolve issues and compromise on tradeoffs in a fraction of the time.
