Project Management

Organize, motivate and control resources, procedures and protocols to achieve our customers’ specific goals and deliverables within schedule and budget. Critical chain project management approach enables Falcon to control and deal with uncertainties, while taking into consideration limited availability of resources needed to execute every aspect of a project, regardless of its size.¬†Projects are planned and managed through the subordination of critical engineering resources and development of cost estimates and budget constraints while continously analyzying risk from beggining to end.

Mechanical Design

Design, development, build and test of mechanical devices, end-of-arm tooling, prototypes, fixtures and various system and modular components to customer specifications for advanced manufacturing systems and OEM equipment fabrication.  Our mechanical design capabilities can also help provide plant layouts and elevations drawings, assembly and detail dimensional drawings, 3D system layout and bill of materials.

Electrical design and drafting includes but not limited to control wiring, safety circuits, high/low voltage power, lighting, as well as remote I/O box, intermediary and main panel layout, robot reach studies, upgrades of legacy PLC’s / VFD’s / Servo Systems.
