Design and Engineering
Although we don't design our customers parts we can offer suggestions. Some shapes are not readily acheviable without subsequent machining and forming operations. Design alterations that do not affect part function or performance and eliminate additional costly operations can be achieved with some success. Some typical design considerations are undercuts, material grade, symmetry, and tolerances.
Tooling can take anywhere from 6 to 14 weeks depending on the complexity and size of the tools. Larger and more complicated tooling requires a little more time to both design and produce. The time & investment upfront can offer a substatial savings in the end product. We will always take into consideration the repair and maintenance necessary to keep the tools running at optimum efficency. Having the ability to build and maintain the tooling in house can reduce the cost, time & energy of production.
