Why Design for Manufacture Matters

The SmartShape methodology of combined disciplines allows for informed Design for Manufacture (DFM) insights and opportunities for optimization early in the process while ensuring design integrity is not lost.

DFM allows potential production headaches to be addressed in the design phase, saving our clients time and money as this is often the least expensive place to implement design changes.  Mark Cartellone, Director of Engineering and Regulatory Specialist adds, “Our team of experts can advise you on a variety of factors affecting the manufacturability of your product concept, such as material selection, manufacturing methods, part geometry, dimensional tolerances and secondary processing options.  Additionally, our team can assess completed designs with design for assembly reviews touching on major topics of part and tool access, serviceability, and tolerance stack-ups.”
