MaxVision is a leader in the extreme portable and transportable computer workstation marketplace. In 1999, MaxVision introduced the first MaxPac® portable PC workstation. Unlike all other full power portable PC computers, the MaxPac featured full-sized 17in LCD displays with options for multiple displays.
Today, MaxVision sets the standard for extreme rugged portable PC workstations featuring 19in – 20.1in LCD displays with additional display options, a special filtration system for operation in the dustiest of conditions, and high disk capacity with removable hard drives to allow for sensitive information to remain secure. Today’s MaxPac® utilizes an integrated UPS to ensure enough time to shut down the system without losing critical data.
Approximately 50% of MaxVision’s portable workstation production is full-custom or semi-custom design. These products are developed specifically for OEM resellers, large corporate customers, and military agencies. These products do not appear on our website out of respect for our partner/customer’s confidentiality.
MaxVision uses mass custom design and manufacturing. This provides quick-turn prototype design and fabrication pilot production lots. Custom PCBs, custom sheet metal, custom machined metal, and durable plastic parts can all be fabricated using these techniques provide cost and time effective production quantities of 10 to 1,000 units.
MaxVision has forged extremely tight relationships with low-level component fabricators of metal and plastic parts only minutes away from our facilities. All design is performed in a comprehensive 3D solids CAD environment with tight revision control for all mechanical and packaging components. Typical prototype fabrication time is 2-3 weeks on both sheet metal and CNC fabrication.
Stereo lithography is used to create master molds of free-formed plastic parts which are produced using polyurethane resins and silicon mold casting techniques. These parts are reinforced when needed with metal inserts in the casing process.
If production above 1,000 units is required, injection mold tooling investments are made. This approach allows high quality, quick turn around production of metal and plastics without the expense or delay of injection mold tooling. However, these techniques are cost effective for medium quantity production up to 50 units per month.
MaxVision uses standard motherboards, video cards, and hard drives in all of its portable designs. Certain printed circuit boards are custom designed by MaxVision to consolidate integration functions and interconnect relating to LCD display control, audio, and power supply systems. These designs are performed by MaxVision engineers and prototyped using quick turn fabrication and assembly within MaxVision. Volume production is then turned over to PCB assembly subcontractors in the area.
SEMI-CUSTOM COMPUTER MODIFICATIONS
MaxVision routinely provides semi-custom modifications to standard products such as OEM logos and simple modifications needed to support special add-in cards and interconnect. Special transit case design is also provided to meet the special needs of customers. These semi-custom modifications require minimal commitments and can typically be delivered in less than 30 days.
Whether you are an applications-specific integrator, software business dealing with the portable video or data acquisition and analysis, or have a particular military or intelligence mission needing a entirely new product; MaxVision is your best partner for custom design and production of portable computing. You will be impressed how fast the process can move and how reasonable the commitment can be.
