Production Engineering covers a range of technologies necessary for the production of components.
Production Engineering covers a range of technologies necessary for the production of components:
A demanding economy is forcing mould makers to be even more creative while facing stiff global competition. Today’s customers insist on precision and durability whilst also demanding shorter lead times and lower prices
Sheet metal and fabrication companies work with small batch numbers and high volumes of CAD data. With deadlines where customers want everything yesterday it is essential to be able to open and read a file to be able to quote. With 3 or 4 sheet metal sub-contractors being asked to quote it boils down to whoever can open the file and get the quote back fastest wins the work.
Pain Points: Request for proposal – time constraints and profitability; finding a similar job; dealing with customer design data.
Tooling design – validate that customer design is mouldable; parting lines and surfaces, shrinkage; detailed drawings.
Design changes – effect of changes late in design cycle; accurate BOM/assembly documentation; revision control
Manufacturing – need accurate 3D models for NC programming; accuracy of machined vs. designed critical.
The plastic sector in turn helps to keep the chemical sector buoyant by accounting for 7.5% of the UK demand for chemicals.
Rubber and plastic products in the UK make up 7% of all UK manufacturing production.
New Technology CADCAM’s solution provides a full range of integrated modelling, simulation and communication tools that mould, tool and die manufacturers need to design better products faster – and at lower cost.
With a feature rich set of easy-to-use sheet metal tools and advanced welded frame functionality our design solutions enable the quick design of sheet metal components and fabricated assemblies.
