Oat Foundry’s Process
Every step is completed in our state-of-the-art shop. Take a virtual tour!
Oat Foundry has a lot of capabilities and just some of them are detailed further below. We’re excited to work with your project using some or all of these skills!
We sketch concept ideas to quickly externalize thoughts and investigate on paper before we build in the real world. Whiteboarding and concept sketches are finished off digitally with CAD modeling and detailed renders using our favorite programs, such as Blender.
Oat Foundry extrapolates lessons from our proof-of-concept prototypes and translates them into 3D Solidworks assemblies complete with hardware. Engineers specify major off- the-shelf and custom components in a Bill-of-Materials.
Oat Foundry develops custom circuits, beginning with breadboards and ending with fully tested, branded, printed circuit boards.
We understand that every process has its own unique set of needs. That’s why we use a variety of lenses to find the best solution possible. Whether you’re after enhanced products, customer satisfaction or loyalty, or an increase in productivity, Oat Foundry can help you reach that goal.
Custom parts are fabricated in-house using our mills, lathes, CNC routers, 3D Printers, welding equipment, casting equipment, and electronics suite.
Experimental prototyping takes place during each of the mechanical, electrical, and software design phases, often used to test integration of sub-systems that span multiple disciplines. We follow a lean ‘Build, Test, Learn’ methodology to iterate as fast as possible.
Oat Foundry manages software development projects using an Agile Process — allowing for more flexibility and a final product that fits real business needs. We suggest generating a ‘mini-scope’ for each sprint in this process.
Oat Foundry has vast Engineering Design Capabilities and we love building cool stuff, and we’d love it even more to build some of that cool stuff for you! If you’re in the Philadelphia-New York-DC area, stop by our shop anytime, or let us know and we’ll come visit you. Not in the area? Drop us a line or email us and we’ll get right back to you as soon as we put down this very hot torch.
