Pillar is proud to announce a new product in the medical field, the NuSleep sleep apnea device. Sleep apnea is a serious inhibition sleep disorder, and our client was looking to apply his extensive dental expertise and solutions into a viable product. Pillar brought the doctor’s idea into a highly detailed level of CAD, which allowed the product to become reality. The resultant medical device was an appliance that utilized fascinating materials as well as original mechanical solutions to reduce stress of the jaw that is highly superior to plastic retainers. Pillar assisted with the product development and engineering of this new medical device for NuSleep.

After mixing, baking, and decorating your perfect cake creation, the last thing you want is a mishap while transporting it to the party. The Cake Porter & Insulated Cover is a convenient, inexpensive way to transport your cake safely and with confidence. Pillar has designed the cake porter with a simple construction that is structurally protective and can easily be flattened for storage. The additional soft-sided insulated cover provides protection from light, heat, and humidity. It was fun working with Innovative Sugarworks to bring yet another concept to market. Congrats Meghan, Kaysie, and Chris!

Pillar is proud to present the Safe Climb, a rebar safety climbing device. Our design focuses on durability, ease of use, and above all user safety and reliability.

The entire product was developed methodically, meeting safety requirements, optimizing the design for part and cost reduction, while maintaining the client’s design goals.

Pillar has been working closely with Stykra to develop a new line of binocular and rifle scopes in both budget and premium categories.

It’s very exciting to see the new line of optics being used in the field and receiving raving reviews online. Congrats Styrka!
