How a Precision Machining Company Partners for Design for Manufacturability (DFM)

Prosper-Tech’s precision machining services for build-to-print includes inputs for Design for Manufacturability (DFM).

Design for Manufacturability is the engineering practice to design for ease of manufacture while still maintaining the intent of the product.

The DFM process normally includes 5 main focus areas:

·       Manufacturing Process

·       Product Design

·       Product Material

·       Environment

·       Testing and compliance

How Prosper-Tech Partners for DFM:

Starting from the quoting process, Prosper-Tech’s highly skilled machinists and engineers review customer provided data to estimate manufacturing operations and quality inspection methods to meet the needs of our customers. Our team is willing to meet for design for manufacturability meetings with the customer’s engineering team. These meetings usually include reviewing the product design, material requirements and the proposed manufacturing processes. Prosper-Tech’s machinists and engineers are trained and proficient in using general dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) to meet our customer’s needs. We produce and verify true potion, parallelism, perpendicularity and flatness to name a few.

Why Partner for DFM:

A precision machine shop’s ability to provide feedback to design for manufacturability can reduce cycle times, improve quality repeatability, and lower costs. To achieve this, Prosper-Tech partners with our customers to ensure that we understand product intent and use. Better understanding this information enables Prosper-Tech to provide the most effective manufacturing process to ensure quality, lead time and cost needs are met. Ultimately, we find partnering with our customers through Design for Manufacturability discussions a mutually beneficial process. It’s through these discussions that we can ensure that everyone’s needs will be met fully.
