Sometimes, Only a Custom Solution Will Do
At HSI, we proactively collaborate with you during each phase of the project and remain committed to your project throughout every production run–ensuring that your cost, quality, and scheduling requirements are being met.
“With Custom Solutions, we can go off the beaten path to explore every possibility to develop the right custom product for you.”
HSI Sensing, CEO
Our custom engagements, depending on your project requirements, take between one month to one year to complete.
We listen to your product needs and through active collaboration, we will brainstorm solutions and determine feasibility.
We will develop a proof of concept and deliver working prototypes that you can test in your application.
We will provide pre-production samples and then only after your approval, the product will move to production.
What to Expect
Our design process is simple and is built around progress, not company policy. Every step is thoughtfully mapped to ensure optimal outcomes.
Our service does not end here though. HSI Sensing personnel remain committed to your project through every production run, ensuring that your cost, quality and scheduling requirements are being met.
At HSI, We Are Committed to Your Success
The HSI Engineering and Design Team is available to design a sensor or switch to meet your exact specifications. And, while all custom projects have different requirements, consider our 6 points below to help you define the initial needs of your custom project.
Target to Detect
What does the sensor need to detect? What needs to happen after it is detected?
What is the timeframe in which you need your product developed?
Are there any quality clauses, requirements, First Article Inspection Report (FAIR) and Qualification expectations?
Check out some of our most popular questions.
Our engineers collaborate with you to develop new products tailor-made for your application. Using our advanced machining, rapid prototyping, and custom molding techniques–along with testing the products in your application–we can shorten development time and prevent costly mistakes.
From day one, you’ll be partnered with a fellow engineer at HSI who understands the ins and outs of reed switch technology, who will listen to your requirements, and work with you on the project from beginning to end.
Obviously development time depends on the complexity of your device and your requirements. Customization of existing sensors–such as changing wire colors or connectors–can take as little as a few hours. Things like custom housings and lab work take longer, but not as long as you might think. We already have personnel, outside labs, prototype fabricators, and component manufacturers on standby to tackle your project at any time.
No matter what your requirements, we’ll estimate the development time and cost early-on, and keep you posted every step of the way. Keep in mind, is we are able to help out from the very beginning of the design process our turnaround time will decrease.
Signing and adhering to legally-binding non-disclosure agreements is something our engineers do every day. We also offer custom part-numbering to ensure that your custom products never find their way onto any public price list or quote.
We design in Solid Works®, a standard for our industry, and one that is highly compatible with multiple design packages.
HSI Sensing’s AS 9100D and ISO 9001:2015 certification places us among an elite group of manufacturers who meet strict international requirements for traceability of raw materials, configuration management of parts and assemblies, and continuous qualification of people, processes, and equipment.
In addition, more than 80% of the sensors we design and manufacture have been custom engineered for our customers’ specific applications. HSI Sensing has a long list of customers in a variety of industries who have been successful because of the products we’ve engineered for them. We’re happy to provide these upon request.

“We are constantly looking to reimagine the way we use sensor technology in our everyday lives. Whether our engineers are looking at a chemical processing plant, a fighter jet or a pinball machine, we are imagining the way that we can use our products to make those technologies better.”
