With the acquisition of TAC Engineering, one of the region’s premier technical illustration service firms, Kinetic Vision added patent illustration services to the growing list of our capabilities. Founded in 1970, TAC Engineering has illustrated over 10,000 applications for a wide variety of products in the consumer product, aerospace, machinery and medical device fields. Since 2014, Kinetic Vision has been partnering with TAC Engineering to deliver high-quality patent illustrations.
Core to our success is a solid understanding of mechanical design and manufacturing principles, and the ability to apply that knowledge to hydraulic, pneumatic, and electro-mechanical device IP documentation. We specialize in high complexity utility patents while also providing less complex figures and design patents to complete a drawing set or portfolio. Unlike most patent illustrators, Kinetic Vision has the resources to support large illustration requests with rapid turnaround times. This increased throughput allows patent attorneys to complete applications more quickly. With a high quality set of drawings, patent attorneys can more easily write applications based on the provided patent illustrations.
In addition to technical illustration, Kinetic Vision provides product intellectual property development services to companies throughout the U.S. and internationally. With complete Innovation and Industrial Design services we turn ideas into concepts, concepts into functional prototypes, and prototypes into manufacturing-ready CAD databases. We can even help source manufacturing options both domestically and overseas.
