Project: Xbox 360 Slim

Mechanical Engineering

At Pensar, developing the best gaming console in existence is what we do every day. Microsoft selected Pensar as their engineering partner because of our ability to define and execute design implementation strategies and turn complex problems into elegant solutions. The new XBOX was clean sheet engineering from concept to manufacturing. Pensar was a critical link in the evolution and realization of this new machine. We stayed up late engineering this new console so you can keep gaming … all … night … long.

Microsoft chose Pensar as the sole mechanical integration and detail partner for the Xbox 360 Slim console, from the ground up.  100% of the mechanical design, mechanical system integration, and execution was done by the Pensar team. A few key contributions include:

  • Design for high-volume manufacturing (20M+ ARU)
  • Key contributions to the thermal system design and execution
  • Full ownership of CAD data, production model structure, and details
  • System shock and vibration analysis, mitigation, solution definition and execution
  • Guarding of Industrial Design intent and details
  • In-depth interaction with tooling design and detailed part manufacturing
  • Ownership of manufacturing tooling for inspection and assembly
  • Deep involvement in qualification and testing process of all parts to the full system

Combining the disciplines of Industrial Design, Mechanical, Electrical, and Software Engineering, Pensar develops robust products that exceed expectations and are ready for the real world.  Contact us to discuss how we can help on your next project.
