|Design & Drafting Service Includes:
Support product engineering and manufacturing teams with expertise during the different phases of project development process.
Design new parts, coordinate the prototyping phase and actively supports the building and assembly process.
Produce detailed manufacturing drawings as Autodesk AUTOCAD FORMATS .dwg, .dxf. SOLIDWORKS FORMAT .slddrw. CREO PARAMETRIC FORMAT .drw. STANDARDS CAD DRAWING FORMATS .stp (STEP), .igs (IGES). eDRAWING FORMAT .edrw. STereoLithography .stl (rapid prototyping format). PORTABLE DOCUMENT FORMAT .pdf and UNIVERSIAL 3D .u3d.
Research, review and check ECO for discrepancies against information provided in ECOs. Consult with development engineer and Change Order Requesters to resolve discrepancies and issues. Update and validate part numbers and BOMs. Ensure all ECO changes occur in a timely manner and perform the necessary follow-up to prevent any conflicts or delays to business goals.
Interface with designing, and manufacturing on a standard fundamental to guarantee prototype is built to drawing/spec on time and within budget.

MFG Techniques: CNC Machining
Machining processes that have traditionally been done on conventional machine tools that are possible with CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machining centers include all kinds of milling (face milling, contour milling, slot milling, drilling, tapping, reaming, boring, counter boring, etc.). Most CNC machine types have two or more programmable directions of motion called axes. An axis of motion can be linear (along a straight line) or rotary (along a circular path). One of the first specifications that implies a CNC machine's complexity is how many axes it has. Common linear axis names are X, Y, and Z. Common rotary axis names are A, B, and C...read more
