Production Engineering (Mould, Tool and Die)

Production Engineering covers a range of technologies necessary for the production of components.

  1. Overview

    Production Engineering covers a range of technologies necessary for the production of components:

    • Moulds & Dies
    • Press Tools
    • Precision Machining
    • Jigs, Fixtures, Workholding Equipment
    • Metrology
    • Tooling Technologies
    • Rapid Product Development

    A demanding economy is forcing mould makers to be even more creative while facing stiff global competition. Today’s customers insist on precision and durability whilst also demanding shorter lead times and lower prices

    Sheet metal and fabrication companies work with small batch numbers and high volumes of CAD data. With deadlines where customers want everything yesterday it is essential to be able to open and read a file to be able to quote. With 3 or 4 sheet metal sub-contractors being asked to quote it boils down to whoever can open the file and get the quote back fastest wins the work.

    Pain Points:  Request for proposal – time constraints and profitability; finding a similar job; dealing with customer design data.

    Tooling design – validate that customer design is mouldable; parting lines and surfaces, shrinkage; detailed drawings.

    Design changes – effect of changes late in design cycle; accurate BOM/assembly documentation; revision control

    Manufacturing – need accurate 3D models for NC programming; accuracy of machined vs. designed critical.
