Engineering & Design

VTI offers a range of engineering services to help customers realize their product development or production goals. Starting with development, VTI can help with material selection, product design, or design for manufacturability. VTI can also help with design and development of tooling. VTI uses the AIAG APQP process by default, but will engage the customer in their own product development methodology as well.

Once designed, VTI can also provide Quality Engineering services to assist with design or process optimization using Design of Experiments (DOE) or FMEA. When you are ready to deploy, VTI will also be there to support you as needed. VTI has supported UAV fuel bladder integration on several occasions.

Services provided:

  • Material selection
  • Tool design and development
  • Product development and detail design
  • Quality engineering services
  • On site integration support

What You Get with VTI

  • On-Time Delivery

    We have a 99.8% rate of delivering products on time. VTI is a reliable supply chain partner that understands the critical need of delivering quality products accurately, reliably, and on-time.

  • Experience
    Vinyl Technology Inc. is the leading manufacturer for RF welded film and sewn textile products and has been around for 40 years. Our products are used for critical applications by hospitals and medical facilities, aerospace organizations such as NASA, and government and defense contractors. If you are an industrial corporation looking for a high-performance solution with a reliable partner, then we may be a good fit for you.
  • High Quality, Best Value
    With a top RF heat-sealing company like VTI, you’re getting only exactly what you pay for. Because we produce only what you designed, there isn’t a single weld out of spec or unexpected. That translates to a lower cost per unit than something you’d typically buy off the shelf. VTI is ISO 9100:2015, AS9100D Certified and Berry Compliant (when requested).
  • High Volume, Quick Production
    Our experienced engineering team can work with you on taking your blueprints from conception stage to production. Our manufacturing facilities are designed for high-volume production runs to help you scale your costs. If you are interested in starting a project, contact us today.

Certifications

Vinyl Technology, Inc. complies with standards required by the US government and Department of Defense that include the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) to the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), STANAG 4671 and MIL-STD-6396. VTI can also fabricate products that comply with the Berry Amendment when required.

Material Selection

Commonly used materials include:

  • Specialty films including PVC, TPU, and other thermo-plastics.
  • Military-Spec Materials and Fabrics, like cotton, duck and nylon. These tend to be water-resistant, abrasion-proof lightweight, and heavy duty.
  • Polyurethane/TPU Coated and Laminated Fabrics. These fabrics are strong and light and are air- and water-tight.
  • Vinyl/PVC Coated and laminated Fabrics. This is similar to TPU coated and laminated fabrics but tend to be more affordable. This may be a better choice for less critical items.
  • Nylon, Polyester, Canvas, Kevlar, Nomex, Etc. These are available in military spec (Berry Amendment compliant…) or commercial grades.

Tool Design and Development

Vinyl Technology can support your tooling design and development. We have our own in-house tool makers with CNC 5-axis machines which allows for quick turnaround and minimizes production downtime. More sophisticated tool and die needs can be outsourced to our specialty tooling house partners.

Product Development and Detail Design

Starting with your CAD drawings, we can help take your product from the prototype stage to large production volumes.

Engineering Services

VTI employs a full staff of mechanical, industrial, product, and quality engineers. We offer a range of reasonable NRE fees for the various stages of your design.

On Site Integration Support

VTI offers planning, integration, and support capabilities to help you get a customized project running for your business or organization.
