Automatic Pet Feeder Case Study

Challenge:

Our lives are busier and busier! You never know when you may need to run out of the house and might not be home for some time. If you have a pet, this scenario can create serious stress. Automatic pet feeders on the market are expensive and require batteries, wires, and wi-fi connection. There was nothing simple (battery/wire-free) and at a reasonable price. A startup business began designing an easy-to-use pet feeder, featuring a quiet mechanical timer with no a/c adapter or batteries needed. In order to bring this pet feeder from design to production and finally to market, the client approached Allen Field to integrate product engineering, prototyping, sourcing, and manufacturing.

Solution:

Allen Field Co. started with the client’s napkin drawings and took the project from tooling to production. We accomplished this by utilizing our advanced product development cycle, which includes:

Results:

Allen Field was able to translate an idea into a finished product through superior project management every step of the way. The result is an affordable automatic pet feeder that is pet tested, BPA free, and does NOT require wires, batteries, or wi-fi connection – simply schedule meals and control portions for your furry friend. During the entire course of the project, the client was kept up to date on all developments. We collaborate with the client through all major steps and are excited to bring another successful product to the market! To learn more about this project, contact us!
