Our Story

2016: Company Creation

 

Brainchild Engineering was founded by Dan Engerer in Detroit, MI as a product design and engineering agency. Starting from humble beginnings (Dan's basement), we've helped countless inventors, startups, and companies build amazing physical products. 

 

 

2019: 'Top-rated plus' recognition

 

After years of hard work and steady growth, Brainchild Engineering was recognized as a top-rated plus agency on Upwork.com, the international marketplace for freelance services. 

Our portfolio of successfully designed products speaks for itself. 

2020: Product Launch Accelerator

 

After watching the inventor and startup community struggle with the same issues over and over, Dan created Product Launch Accelerator, by far the best training and mentorship program for new physical product inventors who are interested in manufacturing their own products. 

2021: Product Launch Partnership

 

Despite offering a complete training program on the startup approach to physical products, Dan realized that not everyone has the means or desire to take on the manufacturing approach. 

 

Product Launch Partnership was created as a solution for would prefer to license their ideas.

Product Development Work Samples

Blood Collection Mixer

For: Boekel Scientific

 

Tasked with full product mechanical design and engineering, Brainchild Engineers helped Boekel Scientific create an innovative medical device that’s beautiful – inside and out.  The unit incorporates the functionality needed for the busiest donor stations with new-to-the-industry features to improve efficiency and operation ease.

 

 

Folding Truck Stairs

For: Jack Doheny Companies

 

The JDC folding staircase offers improved job site safety to truck-based pipeline inspection crews. Starting with only a handful of measurements, Brainchild engineers designed, refined, and prototyped the industrial staircase to perfection. 3D CAD, FEA simulation, DFMA, and extensive in-house prototyping were all employed to launch the customer into successful production.

Dialtune Snare Drum

For: Dialtune

 

Dialtune is a truly game-changing approach to drum tuning and head replacement, transforming a 5+ minute hassle into about 30 seconds. In addition to saving time, the Dialtune system achieves pitch-perfect tone consistency every time due to the balanced and symmetrical product layout. Brainchild was able to take the project to successful production launch where multiple other PD firms couldn't. 

GoBout Multi-dispenser

For: GoBout

 

GoBout is a personal hygiene product which stores many different liquids (shampoo, body wash, lotion, conditioner, etc.) in one simple container rather than many. GoBout hired Brainchild Engineering to design their product from scratch, working closely together to develop and refinea product that is as simple as can be.

E-Z Leaf Yard Tool

For: E-Z Leaf

 

Raking leaves can be a pain. But with the E-Z Leaf, at least that pain won’t be in your back! Inventor Charles Richison approached Brainchild with a novel idea and a hand-made prototype. What he got in return was a production-ready design that’s optimized for low-cost manufacturing.We take the most direct route possible to bring our customers to efficient mass production.

Premium Speaker DFM

For: Detroit Audio Lab

 

Detroit Audio Lab offers a truly unique product: Premium speakers made with reclaimed wood from Detroit homes. Brainchild Engineering helped DAL scale their operation with efficient design-for-manufacturing, working together through concept and in-house rapid physical prototyping on a 3-axis CNC wood mill. 

CFT Vermicomposter

For: Michigan Soilworks

 

Michigan Soilworks is breaking new ground in the vermicomposting industry with their new CFT (continuous flow-through) blade module. Creating the most efficient motorized rig in the industry requires precision engineering. Working closely with MSW, we developed, prototyped, and optimized their cutting edge automatic drivetrain, offering cost-effective solutions for soil life operations.
