The PRR T1 represents the pinnacle of steam locomotive design in the U.S. These locomotives had the capability of achieving speeds in excess of 120 mph. Unfortunately, all of the 52 T1 locomotives in existence met the same fate: the scrapper’s torch. JAKTOOL was tasked with taking historical plans and creating modern plans for manufacturing.
A top-ranked hospital for orthopedics in the U.S. required a non-contact scanning device to cylindrically map cross sections of ligaments and tendons while simulating in-vivo loads. The project had to be developed within the constraints of a fixed-cost research grant.
In response to feedback from the field, the U.S. government revised the specification of MREs (Meal Ready to Eat) from a vertical to a horizontal format, improving the accessibility of the contents. Packaging needed to verify the new MRE tear notch performed to meet MIL spec.
A boutique, electronics manufacturer sought an ergonomic, novel, and cost-effective housing for their precision industrial vacuum measurement device.
Boutique CPG manufacturer Adagio Teas required reverse engineering and product development of Form-Fill-Seal (FFS) packaging machine punch assemblies to improve their longevity, shear performance, and interchangeability.
JAKTOOL worked closely with J&J research scientists to develop innovative laboratory hardware for fluid control.
