Design for Assembly (DFA)
Create a modular design that reduces assembly time with the end goal of making a better product at a lower cost.
✓ Standardize parts
✓ Minimize parts count and complexity
✓ Parts handling and orientation
✓ Self-locating features
✓ Self-fastening features
Whether we start from napkin drawings or completed solid models, our engineering staff is capable of taking on your project – no matter how big or small. We utilize Autodesk Inventor® as our primary software package and can collect feedback from key stakeholders anywhere, no matter what CAD software they use.
Yes! We can work to a customer sample, print or electronic file. Design capabilities allow us to create a new custom part.
The best file formats are .dxf and .dwg (all CAD software can export these). 2D files work best, not models or 3D images.
Yes! We can fulfill your order in several ways, including sub-assemblies and full assembly.
FabMetals accepts blanket orders/split shipments and works with you to help with your inventory control. For example, a customer can place a 10,000 part blanket order and have 1,000 pieces shipped per month to your facility.
