About Design Technology

Established in 1978 by Edward Yelke, Design Technology, Inc. initially focused on the design and development of timing instruments for diesel engines. Products were developed for major local OEMs such as International Harvester and J.I. Case.

Ed's patented piezo transducer became the technology around which the diesel testing units were designed.

Identifying the need for a small, economical unit to measure RPM and track time on small gas engines, the Tiny-Tach was developed and added to the product lineup. It is now a well established product that is sold worldwide in 50+ countries both to individuals and a variety of manufacturing and distribution companies. Design Technology continues to upgrade the Tiny-Tach line to work on both gas and diesel engines.

The company continues to develop and search out a select number of products when a need is identified in the engine marketplace or requests come from OEMs or major distributors.

The new Ultrasonic Cleaner with its unique, specially formulated cleaning solution, is a reasonably priced, highly effective solution to the tedious problem of thoroughly cleaning carburetors and other small engine components.
