MECHANICAL DESIGN & DRAFTING The basic approach to product design and development to meet customer needs, quality expectations, competitive price, reduction of product design cycle time, and minimize disuptive design changes can be effectively produced with a well planned process. A STRATEGIC APPROACH TO PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT TO DESIGN IN QUALITY: Achieving Design to Cost Objective • Building Quality Into Product Design • Design for Reliability • Collecting Data and Recording Resulrs • Time-to-Market • Innovativeness and Technology.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT: Reports to the Director of Product Development. Involves hands-on fabricating or modifying components and support systems for new products and existing product improvement. The objective is to carry out electro-mechanical assembly to support R&D projects. Monitor trial process for all products and prototype all equipment. Assist project managers and engineers. Prepare oral and written reports for all product development activities and analyze performance. Design drafts for all work instruction documents and products

PRODUCT STRUCTURE & BILLS OF MATERIAL: A bill of materials or product structure (sometimes bill of material, BOM or associated list) is a list of the raw materials, sub-assemblies, intermediate assemblies, sub-components, parts and the quantities of each needed to manufacture an end product. Product structure is a hierarchical decomposition of a product, typically known as the bill of materials (BOM). For manufacturers, a bill of materials (BOM) is a critical product information record that lists the raw materials, assemblies, components, parts and the quantities of each needed to manufacture a product.

DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURING & ASSEMBLY: DFM is the method of design for ease of manufacturing of the collection of parts that will form the product after assembly. Design for manufacturability (DFM) is the process of proactively designing products to (1) optimize all the manufacturing functions: fabrication, assembly, test, procurement, shipping, delivery, service, and repair, and (2) assure the best cost, quality, reliability, regulatory compliance, safety, time-to-market, and Design for assembly (DFA) is a process by which products are designed with ease of assembly in mind. If a product contains fewer parts it will take less time to assemble, thereby reducing assembly costs.

ELECTRONIC ENCLOSURE DESIGN: With any design, keep your development in scope and avoid adding cost and complexity where you don’t need it. At product requirement stage, ask yourself, what does my enclosure need to do and what are its most basic functions? Next, model the internal components and create the shell with a uniform wall thickness. Add slots and external holes for sensors, creates cutouts for wire connections and USB connector. Add ribs to support the pc-board and lid fastener features. Add nut features and fillet outet corners. Design the Lid: Repeat the box steps.

MECHANICAL PCP DESIGN: Available 3D modelling software can produce a mechanical PCB design at any stage of the product design cycle through to finalised 3D PCB mechanical drawings. The inclusion of real time 3D in PCB layout packages means we are now able to check more accurately for issues such as, component clashes, board to board clashes, connector locations, and how boards interact with their housings.

ASSEMBLY TOOLING & FIXTURE DESIGN: The successful running of any mass production depends upon the interchangeability to facilitate easy assembly and reduction of unit cost. Mass production methods demand a fast and easy method of positioning work for accurate operations on it. Jigs and fixtures are production tools used to accurately manufacture duplicate and interchangeble parts. Jigs and fixtures are specially designed so that large numbers of components can be machined or assembled identically, and to ensure interchangeability of components.

SHEET METAL DESIGN & FABRICATION: There are plenty of good reasons to design sheet-metal parts as 3D solid models. Designer see the part in 3D rather then guessing what it might look like from a flat pattern. Many sheet-metal design programs now include knowledge bases that hold design and manufacturing information such as the tools available in the shop. Using the basic guidelines will increase the manufacturability of designs for press brake forming. Sheet metal fabrication is the process of forming parts from a metal sheet by punching, cutting, stamping, and/or bending. 3D CAD files are converted into machine code, which controls a machine to precisely cut and form the sheets into the final part.

Quality - Service - Commitment. Due to Non-Disclosure agreements of DOD, DOE, ITAR and customer's related products, you won't see much of my works here. If you are interest to see what I can do to assist or if you need assistance in design, drafting and documentation, feel free to call 408-759-0591 or email Tony. I can provide you with technical support when you need it, a cost saving and a strategic approached to your need to help you produce with a well planned process.
