Jacobs Vehicle Systems has launched JVS Engineering to take on critical engineering challenges not necessarily related to engine braking.

This new initiative, led by a team chosen from within Jacobs, analyzes and resolves technical issues using an integrated design and manufacturing process perfected by Jacobs over its 50-year history, the company says. The group’s experience includes generating systems that integrate complex hydraulics, electronics, and high speed precision mechanisms into systems which achieve outstanding reliability. Jacobs says this makes JVS Engineering particularly adept at resolving challenges such as precise air and fluid control, repeatable high speed motion and high frequency control under demanding conditions.

“This team is excited about putting our collective design and manufacturing experience to work in industries where we can offer new thinking and new solutions for critical engineering issues,” says Tom Howell, director of new technology.

According to the company, JVS Engineering leverages capabilities including detailed simulation, concurrent engineering, design for manufacturing, rapid prototyping, testing and validation, and custom manufacturing. For more information, go to www.jvsengineering.com.
