Essex Engineering

Essex Industries provides complete product services, from design through manufacturing, for customers around the globe. Complex electromechanical, mechanical, cryogenic, chemical and respiratory systems are created for applications in fixed and rotary wing aircraft, emergency breathing equipment, liquid oxygen equipment and gas regulators.

A strong engineering focus has enabled Essex to build a successful business by taking requirements, problems, or concepts and turning them into products that are compliant with global regulations.

This focus is supported by a dynamic group of talented mechanical and electrical engineers, scientists and technicians who form the bases of the Engineering teams at Essex Industries.

Engineering Teams

The New Product Development teams designs products that range from commercial items for large customer market segments to specific Engineered to Order (ETO) products and systems for individual customers.

The Sustaining Engineering team supports existing product lines in our manufacturing operations and works to ensure the highest levels of customer satisfaction.

Essex engineers maintain a strong emphasis on long term research and development to uncover new technologies and materials that could provide a competitive advantage to our customers.

In July, 2012 Engineering moved to the new Essex headquarters facility, which included state of the art hardware and software equipment to expand their design capabilities and customer responsiveness.

Engineering Tools and Services

Essex Engineering has recognized expertise in SolidWorks and utilizes the most advanced solid modeling, surfacing and electrical design techniques.  Increased computer-aided design (CAD) capabilities through the application of finite element analysis (FEA) reduce design time and resultant product iterations -- delivering optimal performance, on time, the first time.

These FEA analytical capabilities through NEI Nastran include computational strength, vibration and fatigue.  Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques are also routinely used to optimize the thermal science related performance of our products.

Essex Engineering has the capability to rapid prototype parts using 3D printing and fabrication; perform complex electrical testing; program instrumentation with NI LabView; simulate metabolic breathing; and conduct a variety of mil standard environmental testing.

In, addition, Essex Engineering utilizes state of the art product data management techniques for drawing and all electronic engineering data.  These methods improve efficiencies between engineering and operations and are compliant with ISO-14971, ISO-13485, IEC-60601 3rd Edition, CE, and AS9100 Revision D.
