Smarthockey approached Produktworks to help them develop a new off-ice training puck. This product helps hockey players develop their stick handling, shooting and passing skills in their own time, away from the ice. The patented ‘Stay Flat’ dynamic core is the only training puck engineered to accurately simulate the weight, bounce, slide and contact height of an ice hockey puck. This allows players can transition from off-ice training to on-ice play without noticing a difference.
Produktworks engineered the ‘Stay Flat’ dynamic core and developed numerous prototypes for real world testing and evaluation. In addition to engineering and prototyping, we engaged in material research, design-for-manufacturability and production support. Having a Canadian engineer on staff who grew up playing hockey also helped with testing!
