Product Engineering

Mechanical engineering is our core competency of Product Engineering. Crosslink International Inc.'s Product Engineering is decentralized to provide support at their points of manufacture. Crosslink International Inc.'s product engineering philosophy: product engineers are charged with fully managing all facets of the after-development product: from raw material's in, to out-the-door print conformance. We do not title any manufacturing engineers at Crosslink International Inc., this function is fully handled by our product engineers.

We believe product engineers must be knowledgeable about our product designs, but, are more valuable making decisions-about ongoing improvement of technology, machinery, and people. They make those decisions from a background of knowledge of mathematics and scientific principles, of people and organizations and of the processes and machinery required to produce high-quality goods, for an affordable price.

Crosslink International Inc. product engineers are required to be involved in the APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) process of new programs, to assure that their input is captured in the product design before product launch. We have realized our cost of quality has significantly been reduced with our product engineering philosophy in place. We attribute this to our product engineering slogan: 'Quality is made, not determined at inspection'.

Our Product Engineers are concurrently responsible for all products Cost of Quality:

  • Profit Improvements
  • Revenue Growth
  • Cost Reductions
  • Increased Productivity
  • Operator Safety
  • Reduce Leadtime & Inventory

As part of our product engineering support, we are capable of working with our customers to conform to progressive pricing, cost reductions, and process improvements. We typically ask for latitude via materials, process and design (changes), but, we enjoy challenging teamwork effort in order to keep everybody's product(s) competitive.
