Bridging the Gap Between a Standard Product and a Custom Solution

Rapid solutions can meet your project’s needs by making minor modifications to our existing products.

Let’s Work Together

“With Rapid Solutions, you’ll be partnered with one of our engineers to work through your modifications together. It’s through this collaboration that we will ensure you get the right solution for your specific needs.”

Fast Lead Times

With HSI Rapid Solutions, we can offer compressed production times by slightly modifying our existing products with prototype lead times in just a short 2-4 weeks.


You will be paired with an HSI engineer to dive into your project details, specs and goals.


We will provide you with working prototypes that you can test in your application.


You can be confident that when you receive your products that they will perfectly in your application.

What to Expect

With HSI Rapid Solutions, we can apply a little something extra to make our off-the-shelf products to create the perfect solution.

During the discovery phase, you will be paired with an HSI engineer to dive into your project details, specs and goals. The HSI engineer will then recommend one of our catalog products to modify to meet your needs. With Rapid Solutions, we offer services like epoxy encapsulation, surface-mounted bars, wire and cable prep and electro-plating, among others.
We understand the importance of making sure everything works as it should. That is why once we have the requirements in place we will begin prototyping. We will provide you with working prototypes that you can test in your application.

We handle our rapid solutions in-house with our talented team of trained professionals. From over-molding to electro-plating you can be confident that when you receive your products that they will perfectly fit your application.

Check out some of our most popular questions.

What does the customization process look like?2020-10-29T14:23:02-06:00

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.

Who will I partner with on modification or customization work?2020-10-29T14:22:04-06:00

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.

How long does a custom project take?2020-10-29T14:20:53-06:00

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.

My product and application are proprietary. Will my intellectual property be safe with HSI?2020-10-29T14:20:06-06:00

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.

Is your engineering software compatible with mine?2020-10-29T14:19:34-06:00

We design in Solid Works®, a standard for our industry, and one that is highly compatible with multiple design packages.

How do I know you guys are good at this?2023-01-06T10:30:34-06:00

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.
