Design optimization: better results for less money

Cheap components may lower your purchase price, but often at the cost of safety, reliability, and total cost of ownership. Lower your total cost without sacrificing quality with a more efficient design. Getting started is easy and involves no cost or commitment:

Stay on budget

Saving money doesn't have to mean giving up quality. Instead of trying to stay on budget by using cheap parts, it makes more sense to invest in an efficient design that will give reliable, leak-free service.

Inefficient design costs more

A more complex design likely means buying more parts, assembling more parts, and checking more connection points later. The result can take up more space, too.

Efficient design costs less

This video shows a Swagelok engineer optimizing a seal panel. His version is smaller, has 20% fewer connections, uses 39% fewer parts, and costs $400 less.

What to expect in the design optimization process

1. Share your idea

Share a scribble on the back of a napkin (we have received these by fax!) or CADs with detailed design. We can start from scratch or at any stage.

2. Engineers listen

Short deadline? Tight space? Budget pressure? We make sure we fully understand your needs before starting the process to streamline a design.

3. Drawing + quotation

We work in your files or provide new sales drawings or CAD drawings (2D and/or 3D) with detailed technical quotations. Then we can iterate.

4. Decision point

The process can end here, and you can run with your plan for a reasonable NRE fee. Or you can get pricing on having our certified technicians handle assembly.

5. Assembly (optional)

If you opt to have us build, our highly trained onsite technicians pull from our huge warehouse, assemble, and test. Certified engineers check it, too. Build It For Me >>

6. Warranty

We can conduct a range of tests on your assembly before it leaves here. You receive documentation and the industry-leading Swagelok Warranty.
