With a new contract to manufacture and deliver, the hot topic around our office this week has been optimising the production process.
Engineering and manufacturing experience coupled with good judgement tells us our product is feasible within budget limitations.
Our designers are using our schematics, drawings and solid modelling to produce our CAM programmes.
Our CAD programs have made our detailed design phase more efficient. This is because it provides optimization, where it can speed manufacturing time without hindering our part’s quality. It also helps us work out how to make our product safe by calculating stress and displacement throughout the part which we use as a check, determining whether these stresses and displacements are allowable.
Our team are thick in the planning process – selecting the best material and production processes. Our production manager enjoys nothing more than calculating the optimal sequence of operations and tools, such as jigs, fixtures, and laser welder. His eyes are sparkling at the thought of the prototype which will be in his hands next week…
