Research & Development

Creating a more reliable world through innovative advancements in reliability engineering

Being a leader in research and development requires innovation in thought and in practice and, at Pioneer Engineering, we are committed to both. We are proud to have the best mechanical engineers and reliability specialists in the industry working together to develop new systems and applications to make condition monitoring easier and more reliable. Using state-of-the-art technology, outside-of-the-box thinking and good old fashioned experience, we are leading the industry in developing unique monitoring solutions for clients around the world.

Research & Development

Pioneer Engineering focuses on delivering the best solutions possible to their clients. Occasionally this means choosing to ignore the "easy" method or the mentality of, "This is Grant at Workhow we have always done it." Rapid progression in technology over the last decade has opened the door to novel methods of vibration analysis and signal processing that were previously unfeasible or unknown. Couple these advances with improved embedded computing platforms and data acquisition systems and it quickly becomes apparent that many current industrial systems and practices simply do not provide the best solution. 

Internal research at Pioneer Engineering is driven by our desire to provide our clients with access to technology that may be years ahead of our competitors. Utilizing industrial partnerships, as well as Colorado State University, we work together to better the industry as a whole by transitioning technology from the lab to the plant. 

Pioneer Engineering currently has patents pending with the United States Patent Office and is striving to bridge the gap between industry and academia. 


Complete Custom Monitoring Systems

Pioneer Engineering is well practiced in developing systems tailored to fit client needs. These systems are highly customizable and can range from a simple data logger to a high end channel count protection system while utilizing accelerometers, proximity probes, RTDs, ultrasonic sensors, flow meters, pressure transducers, strain gauges and more. All Pioneer systems provide the customer with full access to their data with typical interface through the internet, internal networks, or even touch panel displays at the installation location. 

Pioneer Engineering develops these systems, working closely with their customers to overcome the unique challenges that each project brings. The picture below is an example of a custom monitoring system developed for a client. Our Research and Development team were given a specific set of needs and guidelines and were able to develop a system that worked exactly for the client's desired application. Essentially, if you have a specific application that requires a custom solution, the Pioneer Engineering R&D team will work with you one on one to design a solution that works best for you. That's the Pioneer Difference!
