KerKits offers custom Design, Fabrication, Space Rental, and Manufacturing Services.
My name is Kerwin Lumpkins and I have been an engineer for over 20 years. I can help you turn your idea for an invention or nifty gadget into reality. I offer the following services:
- Mechanical Design
- Electrical Design
- Software Design
- Work shop space rental
Mechanical Design - I can turn a rough sketch or just a description into reality . I'm experienced doing design in metals, plastics, fabric, and wood.
Electrical Design - I have a Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering, and years of design experience from consumer electronics to robotics
Software Design - 12+ years in Software Development and Software Testing. I have written software running on Mac, Windows, Linux or small embedded systems like Raspberry Pi or Arduino.
Work Shop Rental - Maybe you know how to design and make your idea already, and you just need tools and space to work. I can provide access to my workshop, with training on equipment if needed. I charge $40/hour for access. I can offer a better rate if you need a block of time to complete a project. See my web page about the work shop to see equipment that I have available.
Fabrication - I am a seasoned maker. I have a full wood shop, 3D printer, and sheet metal tools.
Manufacturing - Need to make more than one of something? I provide manufacturing consulting services. For small scale manufacturing, I might be able to make it right here in my own shop. If not, I can provide advice on how to proceed or represent you so that you don't have to get involved in this aspect. I have worked with contract manufacturing facilities all over the world. I have lots of contacts in Denver, the United States and internationally (China, Vietnam, Mexico, etc).
