In order to keep improving our sheet metal manufacturing services, we have to keep looking for ways to make our processes more repeatable, controllable and more efficient.
Often that’s achieved through investment in machinery, people and the working environment. But it is just as important to deploy the right systems and software around those physical assets.
We have recently made significant investment into Design Automation Software, DriveWorks, which enables us to automate repetitive sheet metal design tasks using a set of rules.
It is an immensely powerful tool for our customers that manufacture a consistent style of product that has variations within the range.
Our customers can leverage our Design Automation software as part of the production process.
We’re able to produce new designs and all manufacturing data, including 3D models and CNC programmes, all at the click of a button using predefined rules and algorithms.
This means we have significantly reduced the time it takes to get a job production ready. Now it is it out of the design office and into production in a fraction of the time it takes using traditional manual design input. We also eliminate the risk of errors as the rules for design are fixed within the software. All together making our service more efficient and more reliable.
It also frees our highly skilled Design Team to work on innovation and much higher value tasks for our customers.
We were recently interviewed by our 3D software partner, Solid Solutions, where discussed our implementation of their Design Automation software, DriveWorks in more detail. You can read the full interview on their website here.
