Working with our clients, we have developed assembly tool and fixture designs for a number assembly processes ranging from welding fixtures, and holding jigs, to surface protectors, and assembly manipulators. Often, the manufacturing process is existing; the client is looking for improvement by using better tools and documentation, or process elimination or automation. We use 3D modeling and virtual prototyping techniques to develop the tools and fixtures the client needs. Reverse engineering is often used, as many manufacturers have already developed tools that work, but they lack the documentation to reproduce or copy it.
Depending on the need, we produce a variety of documents around our tooling designs – build drawings, operator instructions, time and motions studies, and near photo-realistic images feature prominently. Please be sure to ask for what ever documentation you need.
