DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING
DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING FROM THE START
Using proven design for manufacturing methods is essential for any company wanting to benefit from enhanced quality and improved reliability of production parts. And whether you are optimizing an existing design or developing a new product design, your company will witness concurrent reduction of part complexity and cost by utilizing Accudynamics’ design for manufacturing techniques. The outcome is your design yielding repeatable production parts that meet your exact design intent and product specifications.
DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING REDUCES DESIGN TIME
Accudynamics helps our customers reduce the number of design revisions required, and cut time and price of prototype iterations by designing for manufacturing the first time. We aid companies in bringing products to market more quickly.
THE HIGHEST QUALITY DESIGNS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS
Design for manufacturing means that design parts will function as you intended, utilizing optimized dimensioning and tolerances. By reducing the number of components and complexity of the final assembly, you will also reduce assembly time and errors. Further, these optimized designs will have high manufacturing repeatability and quality.
BUILD IN COST DURING DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING
Many products have up to 70 percent of their cost built in during this point. By utilizing design for manufacturing guidelines, you can reduce engineering time, manufacturing time, number of components and improve time to market by working with Accudynamics’ design for manufacturing process.
DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING WITH THE MOST TALENTED ENGINEERS
Our highly-skilled applications engineers collaborate with your design team, beginning at the concept phase, to fully understand the intent of your design by utilizing design for manufacturing methods and techniques to either develop brand-new products, or to work with your professionals to enhance existing designs.
IMPROVING MANUFACTURABILITY WITH EARLY DISCUSSIONS
We approach design for manufacturing with your final product function in mind. As part of this process, your discussions with Accudynamics include possible substitutions that will influence the final product cost such as:
Material selection (aluminum, titanium, ABS, etc.)
Material forms (casting, extrusion, forgings, etc.)
Part tolerances and dimensions
Required manufacturing processes (machining, molding, etc.)
Finishing options (painting, plating, polishing, etc.)
Assembly complexity (fasteners, welding, etc.)
Number of components required
