Product Manufacturing

Torrey Pines Research (TPR) is committed to providing customers with a one-stop solution for product development through manufacturing. In the process of transitioning from engineering to prototype fabrication to the pre-production and production of evaluation quantities of your product, TPR's team understands that these are important steps in the planning process for manufacturing end-user-ready products. 

TPR's goal is to ensure its customers experience a smooth transition from product development to product manufacturing. TurnKey Plus (TKP) was created as the entity to enable the seamless transition from engineering to manufacturing.

The TPR manufacturing support activities and options typically fall into one of the following two categories:

  1. The customer desires to manufacture the product using its in-house capabilities or those of its existing third party manufacturing partner. In these circumstances, TPR will work closely with the customer and/or the customer's third party manufacturer to provide a complete documentation package, together with any necessary special training and instruction as may be required.

  2. The customer desires for a third party to manufacture the product but the customer does not have a third party manufacturing relationship. In these instances, TPR will provide its expert assistance in locating the right third party manufacturer for the job. TPR will disclose its relationship with TurnKey Plus and would certainly like to have  TurnKey Plus considered as one alternative. However, TPR has relationships with a number of third party manufacturers, including domestic, Mexican (maquiladoras), and Pacific Rim manufacturers. Upon TPR's customer's completion of a manufacturing agreement, TPR will work closely with TurnKey Plus or another third party manufacturer to provide a complete documentation package, together with any necessary special training and instruction as may be required.

The following is a summary of TPR's manufacturing service capabilities via TurnKey Plus:

  • Cost-effective “short runs” for evaluation prototypes and pilot-run quantities
  • Fast response for critical lead-time situations
  • Proven on-time delivery of reliably built and tested fixtures and products
  • Skilled technical staff, capable of rapid problem resolution and the assembly, alignment, and test of complex electromechanical products
  • Program planning and management of product development and manufacturing
  • Custom test fixture development
  • Material procurement sheet metal, machining, plating, and paint sourcing
  • Scheduling and costing subcontractor selection and monitoring
  • Surface mount and through-hole assembly
  • Cable assembly molded cable assembly
  • Injection molded plastics
  • Sourcing machining and sheet metal fabrication
  • Off-shore material sourcing  

In one project engagement, TPR was the manufacturer and successfully completed the manufacture of over 40,000 units during a three-year period. In this case, the product was drop shipped directly to the end users.
