KTM is a team of professional engineers that partners with manufacturing companies to overcome challenges and deliver the custom design solution and the expertise you need for your project.
Our Products & Services
KTM utilizes a staff of registered mechanical engineers (PE) that are qualified in the design and analysis of advanced machines, fixtures, lifting systems, and mechanical structures. We design and analyze for sufficient strength, optimal mechanical performance, and safety in accordance with industry standards and governmental regulations.
FEA & Classical Analysis Services
Comprehensive Engineering Analysis Methods
Analysis Methods & Techniques
When developing production support systems, a linear static analysis may not be sufficient. KTM understands advanced analysis methods and techniques.
Analysis We Perform
Static strength and fatigue Analyses as necessary to ensure structural and mechanical systems are sufficiently designed and safe for each application. Analyses we perform:
Vibration (harmonic, acoustic, random, impulse)
KTM provides fixed price quotes for a varying level of analysis services:
FEA (Typical cost $1,000-$2,500*)
Evaluation of part and/or system using modeling software
Results are in the form of color plots showing areas needing further evaluation, hot spots, etc.
Static, dynamic, or thermal analysis
Results delivered in final design review and/or native data
Detailed Analysis (Typical Cost $1,800-$5,000*)
Combination of FEA and hand calculations
Summary report identifying inputs (material, loads, constraints), results, and recommendations
Results presented in a final design review
Comprehensive Analysis Report with PE Stamp
(Typical Cost $3,500 and higher dependent on scope and complexity*)
KTM’s engineering staff holds Professional Engineering licenses in SC, GA, FL, LA, MO, TX and WA
Specializes in aerospace tooling analysis, below-the-hook lifting devices and complex structures and assemblies
Results provided via a PE-stamped stress analysis report. KTM is capable of delivering stress reports in company-specific formats (such as Boeing D-doc format).
Stress report includes materials, loads, constraints, safety factors, loading diagrams, conclusion
*Typical cost estimates are based on KTM’s experience quoting projects across multiple industries. Many factors contribute to cost, such as complexity and reporting requirements. A 3D model or drawing and written scope of work (formal or informal) is required in order to receive a fixed price quote.
Structural and Mechanical
Structural and mechanical simulations are an important part of the comprehensive analysis services offered by KTM Solutions. Through proven and reliable processes, KTM develops structural and mechanical simulations using industry standard Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software packages. These simulations are excellent for developing and evaluating design scenarios as well as optimizing final design solutions.
The KTM Advantage
KTM Solutions’ engineers are well experienced in structural and mechanical analysis. While some analysts may simply accept the results from an FEA, KTM believes that these results should be validated to ensure that predicted results are accurate. For this reason, our engineers use backup calculations and testing as appropriate to affirm software results.
KTM’s professional engineers have experience working as a closely-knit and highly efficient team to provide total solutions. KTM understands that elegant design must also be supported by accurate calculations and be suitable for manufacturing. Pretty design that is easily manufactured but lacks durability or sufficient strength is never good practice. That’s why KTM Solutions utilizes a combination of classical analysis methods and computer-generated simulations to ensure that products are adequately designed to satisfy the usage requirements for the life of the system.
Although we provide turnkey design and manufacturing services, KTM’s professional engineers will apply proven analytical processes and tools to validate your designs as well. Or, if desired, we will work with you to structurally optimize your designs.
From initial concepts to final documentation, KTM’s goal is to help you achieve great results. Our structural analysts have the heart of a teacher, a unique ability of our technical staff. Our engineers will take time to explain in easily understood terms the results of any structural or mechanical analysis. Not only will you have the assurance that your products are designed properly, you’ll also have an understanding of the basic engineering behind the design.
