It’s hard to describe a normal project at Parallel, because there is no normal for us. Some of our projects explore the ocean, others go up to space, some are one-off pieces of equipment, and others are high volume consumer products. Despite the differences, they all involve taking a mechanical idea from a concept to a real, tangible result.
Electrona - Submersible Development
Parallel provided industrial, mechanical, and electrical design expertise for Electrona’s first line of remotely controlled submersibles. Our main contributions included design and engineering of the plastic chassis and the pressure-tight electronics enclosure.
TEAM Textiles - Loom Retrofit
Parallel designed a custom pneumatic motion system for a proprietary weaving process at TEAM, a textile engineering and manufacturing group that works with high performance fibers for the composites industry.
Link - Product Development and Production
The Link Framepack is a collapsible bike bag designed, developed, and produced right here at Parallel. We are avid believers in bicycling as a form of urban transportation and hope the Framepack will make biking just a bit more practical for everyday life.
