Benefits of IGI Custom Engineering and Fabrication

Most organizations aren’t cookie cutter similar. Facilities and workflows aren't either. When looking for an integrator to provide the right visualization system several key aspects must be taken into consideration starting with display, graphics, and software. Beyond these, understanding how to integrate those components into an organization’s facility is an early key step in the design and installation process. What is needed from a workflow perspective will drive the design and engineering of the system. Performance needs, available space, and budget are more aspects also vary from one organization to the next.

That’s where custom engineering and fabrication benefit successful AV integration. Working with an experienced integrator can help your organization achieve its goals for a visualization system within the constraints of your facility and your budget.

Not just overcoming challenges and limitations

Certainly, limitations and challenges of a particular facility can necessitate custom engineering and fabrication. But beyond this, there are times when no product exists to fulfill the organization's needs so a completely custom product is designed which also requires custom engineering and fabrication. Case in point, the IGI DesignView. Born out of automotive industry frustration and the limitations of analog, paper-based rolling boards.

It’s important to work with your advanced visualization integrator and communicate any specific space requirements or limitations so that the design team can customize a solution to fit your needs. Testing, quality assurance, and design changes should all be integral parts of the integration process.

4 Benefits of IGI Custom Engineering and Fabrication:

  1. Relationship and experience in Fortune 50 (automotive, aerospace) and U.S. Military environments creating systems that are uniquely designed for visualization.
    Our knowledge and flexibility allows us to respond faster to design changes and meet important deadlines. Known for our high caliber performance and clean, sleek finish, all of our advanced visualization and commercial AV systems are built to impress customers and their audiences both functionally and aesthetically.

  2. The complex mechanical engineering of these systems. 
    The IGI custom mechanical engineering process ensures material quality and structural integrity in all designs.

  3. Custom all-in-house engineering and fabrication of all structures.
    We custom engineer and fabricate all of our own portable and permanent mechanical structures and precisely fit them with LED cabinets or projection/screen systems on our own shop floor. This enables us to ensure design specifications, respond faster to design changes and thereby avoid the risk of missing target delivery dates potentially associated with outsourcing, and remain flexible to meet customers' widely varying size and form requirements.

  4. IGI has used this process for over 100 advanced visualization projects.
    Prior to installation, we completely assemble, configure and test each system for functional integrity before it leaves our facility to ensure no detail gets overlooked. At this stage, the customer can be invited in for testing, quality checks and design change requests so that all aspects of the system absolutely meet with their complete satisfaction.
