After a concept is approved by the client for further engineering product development, we 3d CAD design the product with sophisticated parametric Solidworks 3D CAD software. This allows the various detail aspects of every component to be refined and evaluated with the highest degree of accuracy. The entire product can be assembled and checked electronically in cyberspace, regardless of complexity, before any tooling or parts are actually made.
Structural, durability, aesthetic and cost considerations usually guide the design engineering and determine the optimum manufacturing method for each component. Production tooling such as patterns, drill jigs, welding fixtures and bonding fixtures often need to be designed as well.
The 3d CAD design tolerances of all components must be carefully determined to assure that the newly designed parts will always fit properly together while still remaining economical to manufacture.
In the engineering product development phase the component parts, electronics, graphics, assembly, and various tooling drawings are created, detailing all of the necessary tolerance, finishing and assembly information which CAD models alone cannot provide. These drawings are used by mold makers and machine shops to manufacture tooling and parts.
