Design Services Case Studies
Process Line Design and Build Support
In response to the government’s “warped speed” initiative, a custom automation company needed to develop a process line to mass produce vials that would be used to store the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) vaccines and therapeutics. Read on.
R&D Product, Machine, and Process Design
A client needed to develop a thermally insulated bag for a national online groceries home delivery client. Sterling conducted concept trials to assess product performance and then designed a prototype pilot line to prove process scalability. Read on.
Medical Device Automation Design
For decades Sterling has been a resource provider for large automation projects. This program included ½ billion dollars of custom automation machines from several suppliers. This operation was to be the source for all the world’s markets. Read on.
