We bring broad and deep experience and applied knowledge in all facets of metal fabrication engineering. It's at the core of what we do.
Our engineering team has experienced hundreds of different project types. Leveraging our team's experience and knowledge will help balance your project's goals.
We do this by combining creative design solutions with an analytical approach to ensure quality products are manufactured on time and in budget.
DFMA or Design for Manufacturability and Assembly is the approach by which engineers create products in ways that make them easy to manufacture and assemble. This approach helps reduce cost, improve quality, and keep your project on track.
Our team is well versed in DFMA.
DFMA or Design for Manufacturability and Assembly is the approach by which engineers create products in such ways that they are easy to manufacture and assemble.
This approach helps reduce cost, improve quality, and keep your project on track. Our well-structured approach to DFMA takes into account short-term and long-term goals and considers factors for your project including: raw materials, WIP, manufacturing processes, tooling, the machinery and systems for production, the design of the parts and finished assemblies, level of skills needed, tolerance requirements, potential for automation, volume, and lead times.
Our Approach is the foundation by which we continuously improve the DFMA process
While DFMA is a foundational approach in which we work through our design process, metal fabrication engineering is at the core of all that we do.
Our expertise in metal fabrication extends through a variety of service offerings, including:
If you have a need for engineering services for your metal manufacturing and metal fabrication project, we can help.
When you leverage our team's expertise in metal fabrication engineering, our experience in new product development, the foundation we've built through our approach with PDCA, and our reconfigurable manufacturing system, your project will have a faster time to market.
We have deep experience in moving through the phases of new product development. Our company uses its own phase matrix that includes product research, design, concept & prototyping, market validation, development for an initial product offering, and go-to-market production.
This experience is invaluable with our contract manufacturing customers that need to get new products created and brought to market fast.
Our systems stack includes using tools like Asana for customer project management and Airtable for automated production information and tracking.
When you combine the above with our collaborative approach, the end result is reduced lead times.
With Semi Exact Manufacturing, you can go from quarters to months and even weeks with our rapid manufacturing approach.
Our value-focused metal fabrication and production engineering services improve product quality.
Quality is improved through our PDCA Approach that ensures a Plan, Do, Check, Act cycle not only for the first iteration of your pre-production sample, but at each stage of production and fulfillment throughout your project.
Our first approach to understanding your project is to set target costing for the products together. We have found that this collaborative approach works best for our contract manufacturing customers and our Semi Exact Manufacturing team members. We are not the go-to if you are only looking for the lowest cost quote.
If you are interested in ways to control your costs, after our initial conversation, we'll review your products/project with our engineering team to discuss the project scope. During this quick process, we review cost constraints, price targets, delivery requirements, and then apply creative solutions with analytical skills in order to achieve your goals.
Whether you already have engineered files ready to go or need our support in creating or adjusting them, we're here to help.
