is where innovation happens, a blank piece of paper and the tools you see above. With no preconceived notions of how something should be done.
is when a vision is transformed into a manufacture-able product. When using the newest CAD tools and advanced manufacturing technology the process can be effortless.
is a fabrication process that joins metals, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal.
is the processes and methods used to transform tangible inputs (raw material, semi-finished goods, subassemblies) and intangible inputs (ideas, information, knowledge) into usable or sellable product.
is where every second of the manufacturing process is accounted for and the suitable raw material is sourced as direct as possible. when this is done, you can dial down your cost drastically.
(DFM) is the general engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture, in order to streamline the manufacturing process and reduce its manufacturing costs.
Lead times vary from 48hrs to 2 months depending on scope of work.
is the process of transforming a raw material using human or automated labor and industrial equipment into a finished part that conforms to specified dimensions, tolerances, and requirements.
is a machining process of using typically a non-rotating cutting tool that removes material from a rotating part. The tools axis of movement can be linear or radial.
is a milestone within a product development process whereby a design is evaluated against its requirements in order to verify the outcomes of previous activities and identify issues before committing to production.
is the machining process of using rotary cutters positioned at any angle to remove material, from a work piece advancing (or feeding) in any direction.
is an early sample, model, or release of a product built to test a concept or process. Prototyping serves to provide specifications for a real, working system rather than a theoretical one.
is the metalworking process of reshaping metal parts through mechanical deformation; the workpiece is transformed without adding or removing material.
