Our engineering and tooling teams possess an integral knowledge of complex structures, materials, technology integration, and large-scale manufacturing, resulting in quality performing and cost-effective tool and part designs. Our design engineers are prepared to meet your challenges, whether it’s a simple non-aesthetic sub-component, or complex precision fit in-mold decorated assembly. CAD Proficiency: CATIA / Pro Engineer / all CAD software translations
ENGINEERING / DESIGN
Automation is used as a means of support to our staff, and not a replacement. Our ‘automation with a human touch’ is the driving success behind our complex workstations. We also employ quality control vision cameras in addition to the LEAN processes of Error Checking, Poke-Yoke, and Fail-Safe in our standard production practices.
Through our global and local partnerships with tooling companies, we are able to provide premium tools for high to mid-volume programs. Our in-house tooling shop is well equipped for making repairs and modifications to existing tooling, minimizing downtime to meet production deadlines. Capabilities: sourcing / prototyping / manufacturing from existing tooling
Through upfront engineering, we can offer full flow analysis and part design refinement to improve manufacturability and achieve a better, less labor intensive process. We can support 1+1 and multi-cavity tools, integrating sophisticated automation to provide optimal value added manufacturing efficiency. Our engineering team will manage automation and tool builds from start to finish and provide in-house maintenance, including polishing and ice blasting to save valuable time and cost.
For design review, brainstorming new ideas, or short lead-time projects, our rapid prototyping capabilities provide our customers added benefit of part and tool review prior to tooling production and mass manufacturing. We manufacture prototypes on our FDM prototyping machine, or build a prototype mold for quick and efficient functional part production. This technology allows us to fabricate fixtures, assembly & holding jigs, and end-of-arm tooling components, subsequently reducing lead times and program costs.
MOLD FLOW ANALYSIS
We ensure successful implementation of each project through our team of dedicated professionals and abundant resources to effectively serve each customer’s needs.
From project initiation through manufacturing, our Advanced Program Launch team manages each program in detail with effective communication. Our method allows for the launch of each product on time, every time, and to the required specifications. With our employee-driven culture of continuous improvement, customers are assured that each program is to be properly administered, making your project a success.
