Design for Manufacturing
Jaco Machine Works’ experienced team of manufacturing engineers work in close partnership with our customers engineering and design departments to provide design assistance and identify opportunities for manufacturing and production optimization.
Our design for manufacturability and Engineering Support can help your company:
- Improve quality and part performance
- Improve manufacturability and inspection
- Avoid design or manufacturing changes late in the process
- Reduce costs on higher volume production
- Reduce time-to-market
Jaco Machine Works is proud to provide our customers with valuable insight for product and process enhancement; improving the machinability and performance of their product line, while reducing costs and lead time.
Each design is reviewed for a number of features that can impact a components’ effectiveness and production cost. Including:
- Availability and cost of raw metals, materials, finishing processes, etc
- Use and availability of standard materials and comparable equivalents
- Appropriateness of materials to the manufacturing process
- Product complexity and tolerance requirements impact to machinability
- Design improvements to ease manufacturing
- Design and development of custom tooling, jigs, fixtures, work holdings, and functional gages to increase speed and accuracy of production
Jaco Machine Works’ engineering team works closely with our experienced machinists to ensure precise and repeatable production results. Lean, reliable manufacturing operations and the utilization of statistical process controls minimizes variations and discrepancies ensures consistent part conformance.
Combined with our precise manufacturing techniques and ISO9001:2015 & AS9100D certified quality management system, Jaco Machine Works engineering support team provides our customers with the confidence of knowing they will receive properly reviewed, high quality product, on time and at a competitive price.
Jaco Machine Works’ engineering team utilizes the latest software and technology:
- Solidworks® 2019
3D mechanical design system for product development, fixture and tool design
- Solidworks Inspector®
Quality Assurance tool provides inspection data collection, statistical process control and inspection report automation
Solids-based tool path generation for 3-, 4- and 5-axis CNC milling and multi-axis turn-mill machining centers
- Autodesk Partmaker®
Solids-based tool path generation for mulit-axis turn-mill and Swiss screw machines
3D printing design software takes solid models from our Solidworks design platform and prepares them for direct 3D printing on JACO’s Mark2® 3D Printer. Eiger enables the part design to add stiffening fibers carbon, Kevlar® and glass fiber reinforcement. Structural infill can be introduced to save on materials and resulting in lighter parts.
Through the years Jaco’s engineering team has helped many of our customers be more successful. How can we help you?
Send us your solid model files for direct import into our CAM software. Jaco Machine Works can accept IGS, DXF, STP, or Solidworks native files.
Whatever your application may be, Jaco Machine Works’ engineers and talented operations professionals are determined to help you succeed.
