Design for Manufacturing
You know your products — we know metal manufacturing
For close to 50 years, we have helped refine and optimize our customers’ product designs for reliable manufacturability and cost effectiveness. We use established DFMA (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly) methodologies to make parts smartly, by minimizing waste and giving forethought to product manufacturability and assembly.
Our design team approach reduces manufacturing costs and improves quality
For each new project, we meet with you to collaborate on the design and understand your objectives. Then, we assemble a team of experienced design and manufacturing experts who start by reviewing your design drawings in light of our state-of-the-art production equipment. We look for ways to reduce the number of parts, often by increasing the part complexity, which will result in lower manufacturing costs, ease of assembly, and improved quality. We also review the design for use of standard parts and materials, ease of fabrication, mistake-proofing assembly, and surface finish requirements.
Next, we discuss recommendations based on manufacturing best practices that ensure the lowest cost and the highest quality. At every stage, we keep your best interests at heart, suggesting enhancements to make work flow smoother and to eliminate problems down the road.
Our goal is an optimized, quality product that you can provide to your customers at a competitive price.
