Design For Manufacture
Following on from the concept design approval; 3D engineering CAD drawings are produced.
After reviewing the range of manufacturing processes that could be applied to a project; raw materials selected, this stage then develops into the product transformation phase.
The range of manufacturing processes that could be explored are; injection moulding, vacuum/thermo forming, blow moulding, rotation moulding, plastic/metal extrusion, CNC machining or metal die-casting.
Performance of materials are tested using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Mouldflow Analysis software.
3di design engineers understand the nuances of these processes and can tailor our designs accordingly.
