Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is the process of designing parts, components or products for ease of manufacturing with an end goal of making a better product at a lower cost. This is done by simplifying, optimizing, and refining the product design.
The best applications of EB welding come from design stage discussions with customers. Our free “Best Practice Guide” covers materials, joint designs, and quality control. We offer a DMF service beyond this.
More and more we make the components we assemble and EB weld. This gives us an understanding of the cost of tough metals with tight tolerances.
We always comment on the suitability of materials and joint design on enquiries. However, we often find designers do not understand the cost impact of machining features and tolerances. We work with you to understand product function and performance and then minimise the cost drivers to reduce end cost.
