Sunstream’s engineering services play a crucial role in the industrial product market by offering expertise and technical support that help companies develop, optimize, and maintain their products and processes. These services are integral to every phase of a product’s
lifecycle, from concept and design to production, implementation, and beyond. Here’s how Sunstream’s engineering services contribute to the industrial product market across various segments:

Product Design and Development: Sunstream’s engineering services help in designing and developing new products that meet specific market needs or regulatory requirements. This includes CAD (Computer-Aided Design) modeling, prototype development, and testing services to ensure that the new products are viable, efficient, and ready for mass production.

Process Engineering: This involves the design, operation, control, and optimization of chemical, physical, and biological processes. Process engineers develop innovative solutions to improve production efficiency, enhance product quality, reduce costs, and
ensure environmental compliance. Sunstream has consultants and partners to support you in your process engineering challenges.

Automation and Control Systems: Our Engineering services in automation involve designing and integrating control systems to automate industrial processes. This enhances precision, increases production speed, reduces human error, and can lead to significant cost
savings over time.

Testing and Validation: Before products go to market or new processes are rolled out, they must be rigorously tested. Sunstream’s services provide testing and validation to ensure that products and processes meet all required specifications and regulatory standards.

Maintenance, Repair, and Operations (MRO): Ongoing engineering support is vital for maintaining the efficiency and lifespan of industrial machinery and equipment. Our services include MRO data management, UNSPSC classificatoin, Equipment BoM creation, predictive maintenance, which uses data analytics to predict equipment failures before they occur, and preventive maintenance, which involves regular checks and repairs to prevent equipment breakdowns.

Environmental and Safety Engineering: These services help companies comply with environmental laws and regulations, such as those governing emissions or waste disposal. Sunstream has full fledged capability to handle all environmental compliance regulations
which affect the industrial products industry. Our expertise include ROHS Compliance, REACH Compliance, Prop 65 compliance, Conflict mineral compliance, PFAS, TSCA and several other regulations.

Supply Chain Optimization: Engineers provide insights and solutions to optimize the supply chain, from raw material sourcing and logistics management to inventory control and distribution strategies. Sunstream’s MRO Data Services and inventory data services are the foundation for any aupply chain optimization projects. This can be crucial in reducing costs and improving delivery times.

Energy Management and Sustainability Consulting: Engineering services help industrial companies reduce energy consumption and carbon footprints, leading to cost savings and compliance with global sustainability standards.

Retrofitting and Upgradation: As technologies evolve, industrial facilities need to update or replace outdated systems. Sunstream's engineering design services like As Built Engineering can support the retrofitting of existing facilities with newer, more efficient technology without necessitating a complete overhaul.

By integrating these engineering services, industrial product companies can stay competitive, innovate continuously, reduce costs, and meet regulatory demands, thereby enhancing their market position and operational effectiveness.
