Kinetic Vision is proud to announce the acquisition of TAC Engineering, one of the region’s premier technical illustration service firms. Founded by Gene Timperman 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.

The addition of their skills blends perfectly with our existing core expertise in Industrial Design, Product Design, Modeling and Simulation, Prototype Creation and Test, and Design Visualization. Why spread your product development effort between multiple companies when you can use Kinetic Vision’s full-service portfolio?

“We are extremely excited to integrate the vast knowledge and capabilities of TAC Engineering into our existing product design and development service offerings. Under one roof you can turn a blue-sky concept into a production-ready design, create and test prototypes, do market research, capture and document the intellectual property – all with unmatched quality, timeliness and value.”
