One product that Lemac Manufacturing has been working on for nearly 4 years now is a convertible baseball mound that allows a playing field to be used for baseball, softball, and soccer.
Our customer came to us with a pretty brilliant idea, one that would allow schools, parks, and recreational areas to double their field use by allowing a baseball mound to be flipped and stored within the field to create a flat area of play. In this case our client had the concept, but not the engineering and plastics experience to make it happen on his own. This is where Lemac Manufacturing came into play.
Working closely with our client, we developed an initial design that we felt would work well for his project. Once he signed off on the design, we built a model that allowed him to see a functional, albeit small scale, representation of his idea in action. It also gave him a proof of concept to show prospective investors.
With his investors on board, we were able to get to the next big step, making the first prototypes for real world use. (and abuse)
