Design & Manufacturing
Laboratory Design Solutions
We apply more than 30 years’ experience in gas delivery systems and process equipment to our laboratory design solutions.
Dakota was founded to meet the process laboratory gas piping needs for applications that rely on hazardous gases. Not only is quality design and engineering integral to the performance of equipment, but more importantly it is vital to the safety of your employees. At Dakota we approach laboratory design and manufacture with the utmost pride and responsibility. Every Dakota employee undergoes extensive training including a full seminar on safety and responsibility – both for our own employees and our customers’ employees. Dakota laboratory equipment has withstood decades of competing technologies in large part because of the reliability and safety of our laboratory equipment.
Our design-for-manufacture philosophy, strict ERP documentation, and calibrated-to-demand flexibility all allow our customers to navigate the peaks and valleys of the product lifecycle. When we design a prototype, we design it with scale and manufacturing in mind so you are prepared for opportunity when it comes. Similarly, our diligent documentation allows us to create identical machinery for repeatable results or design next generation laboratory equipment that can leverage existing equipment or infrastructure to facilitate transition. The aggregate effect of a Dakota partnership is reliable laboratory equipment structured around your success.
With a history in both facilities and process laboratory equipment, Dakota has a uniquely comprehensive domain knowledge from the gas source to the process chamber. This knowledge enables us to design an elegant symbiosis between the ecosystem and the equipment. We design with an ergonomic standard so that the gas delivery systems support both current and future process requirements. Such design elements include adaptable unions at standard distances to accommodate future equipment and modular design for scale and flexibility. The net result is easier installation with minimal on-site welding, improved performance, and an extended lifecycle.
Scalable Gas Delivery Services
Scale is the nucleus of Dakota’s laboratory equipment design and manufacturing philosophy. Our laboratory design solutions leverage standardization, flexible design, and best practices to create scalable gas delivery systems that improve current and future lab performance.
More than 30 years of design expertise and manufacturing inform the Dakota Standard. All of our laboratory equipment and systems feature design elements to facilitate installation and maintenance, enable growth and adaptation, and improve daily ownership. Features include:
- Gas delivery systems with unions at standard distances to support current and future equipment throughout the facility.
- Uniform gas inlet and exhaust ports to improve flexibility and keep gas lines clear from damage and accidents.
- Compatible design specification to enable next-generation laboratory equipment to leverage the existing laboratory and equipment.
Ergonomic Laboratory Gas Piping
Our comprehensive knowledge of the laboratory equipment domain from the gas source to the process laboratory equipment enables us to design and manufacture ergonomic laboratory gas piping systems and equipment. We not only consider the ease of the initial set-up, but make maintenance items accessible and operation simple. The net result is improved efficiency and productivity through equipment that is a joy to own.
Ergonomic Laboratory Equipment Installation
We spec our gas delivery systems with adaptable unions at standard distances to facilitate installation and minimize on-site welding. Similarly, our laboratory equipment features standardized gas inlet and exhaust ports for uniform piping enabling identical installation and compatibility of equipment throughout the lab. This system improves safety while ensuring economic and efficient install and adaptation.
Ergonomic Laboratory Equipment Maintenance
We think about the entire life-time use of laboratory equipment and systems we design. Maintenance is a vital part of the laboratory equipment lifecycle. As such, we make maintenance items easily accessible while preserving the safety and integrity of the production environment. This means faster maintenance, less downtime, and more production.
Ergonomic Laboratory Equipment Operation
All of our laboratory equipment is designed to be intuitive and friendly to the end users. On custom laboratory equipment, ergonomics can go as far as designing controls to match the physical specifications of the primary user, but all of our equipment is designed for ease of operation. The joy of owning Dakota equipment is a large part of why companies like IBM have used our laboratory equipment for decades.
