Engineering for Manufacturability Process Highlights
Our engineering team excels in taking customer designs and transforming them using our advanced technology and techniques to streamline the manufacturing process, resulting in improved function, quality, and cost savings.
We use 3D modeling for a variety of functions:
- Document/revision control
- Machine programming
- Project planning
- Redesign for manufacturing with our equipment
- Shop routing
- Quality control
Every project that comes into our facility is 100% 3D modeled. Using this technology, we can eliminate waste, verify the design, optimize for use with our leading-edge equipment, improve quality, and streamline brainstorming and communication.
Our team never follows the status quo. Continuous improvement is built into everything we do. Our engineers are not just sitting in offices. They are on the shop floor, observing machines, techniques, and processes. This is how they’ve achieved breakthroughs in design, increasing the efficiency, functionality, and most importantly for our customers, the cost-effectiveness of the process and the product.
We are committed to finding ways to error-proof our processes. One of the ways we do this is through smart design. By making the initial investment of time in thoughtful and carefully considered design decisions, we can significantly improve both quality and productivity. It allows our team to meet the most stringent and precise design tolerances.
Software and Equipment
We consistently evaluate our software and equipment to ensure that it meets our extremely high standards and provides the services and results our customers require.
This software is actually a suite of CAD/CAM products. It is the #1 solution for manufacturing companies. It streamlines software testing, component manufacturing, tech support, training, and many other processes.
AutoCAD ensures our designs are accurate. It is invaluable to our engineers for analyzing and solving design challenges for mechanical parts. A vast improvement over manual drawings, AutoCad allows for very quick adjustments. It can allow us to quickly create 3D models from a basic drawing for accurate prototyping and makes exporting, editing, or printing digital designs easy.
This CAD/CAM software is a CNC simulator that allows us to plan, program and verify our NC machining operations with all components. We use it to manufacture individual parts or models, molds, and dies. It saves a tremendous amount of time, effort, and money by simulating complex operations on the digital simulation of the actual equipment.
CNC Cutting Equipment
Computer numerical control cutting machines enables our team to scale production when large quantities of products are needed. It ensures even complex cuts are executed accurately and consistently by executing multiple instructions from a computer program. CNC operations replace engineer-operated equipment with automation that delivers highly precise results. Our CNC cutting equipment is accurate to within 0.005″.
