Sometimes, you have a problem on your hands that needs to be solved. Other times, you need a fresh set of eyes on a project and a new perspective. Our design assist services can help in either scenario. When you partner with us, you’ll find that we’re not just order takers. We’ll carefully and thoughtfully evaluate the part or parts you wish for us to manufacture, offering insight and suggestions as to refinements that could simplify the production process, saving you money—or both.
With our highly skilled staff and access to engineering software and high-tech machines ranging from 3D printers for concept development to tooling centers for prototyping, there’s a solid probability that if you have a problem, we can solve it. This success is achievable through our inquisitiveness, our technology and our desire to offer top-notch customer service. Specifically, we’re known for offering the following:
- Design for Manufacturability (DFM)
- Design for Assembly (DFA)
- Additive Manufacturing
- Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD+T)
- State-of-the-Art Engineering Software
- Continuous Process Improvement Activities
Each of these services has a time and a place, but all are approached with design improvements and cost savings in mind.
A Real-World Example
A longtime customer and leader in the electric propulsion ground vehicle market encountered an oil leakage issue on a stator housing, the stationary part of their Hybrid Electric Motor. We arranged for this critical part to be casted. Then, we printed 3D concepts that we took in-house for production on newly acquired HTL machines. The refinements solved the problem and helped the customer entrust our team to review and refine another product: a previous generation stator housing.
If you need a little (or a lot!) of assistance on your next project, we’d be glad to provide it. Give us a call to get started.
