What is Design for Manufacturing?

What is Design for Manufacturing? Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is the task of transforming an original product design or concept into one suitable for production or assembly. By incorporating design-for-manufacturing services early in the product development cycle, companies can significantly reduce the time and resources required for manufacturing, while retaining as much of the original design as possible. EMAIL: Call: 01 Principles and Advantages of Design for Manufacturing (DFM) Several key principles underpin the successful implementation of DFM: Simplicity in design Keeping product designs simple by minimising the number of parts and features has several advantages. Fewer components mean less…

Worker deburring a metal part
What is Deburring?

What is Deburring? Deburring is an essential finishing process in manufacturing that involves removing small imperfections, known as burrs, from metal parts. These burrs usually form during machining operations, such as cutting or grinding and can compromise the functionality and safety of the components. A professional deburring service improves the quality, reliability and appearance of the parts while eliminating sharp edges that could lead to premature failure through stress concentrations. It is particularly vital in industries like aerospace and automotive, where precision and safety are paramount. A variety of techniques, from manual hand deburring to automated machine systems, are employed…

Understanding Electrophoretic Coating

Understanding Electrophoretic Coating Electrophoretic coating is an essential industrial process that bonds paint to metal surfaces using an electric current. Employed in numerous industries, including automotive and aerospace, electrophoretic coating provides intricate parts with an even coating that protects against corrosion. EMAIL: Call: What is Electrophoretic Coating? Electrophoretic coating, often known as EP-coating, e-coating or e-painting, is a method that uses electrical current to deposit a paint or coating onto a metal object. This process is widely used due to its efficiency, uniformity and exceptional corrosion resistance. Electrophoretic coating involves submerging the metal part into a water-based solution containing paint…
