At the Engineering Resource Center, one of the things we pride ourselves on is upfront design support. Often times, we will come across designs that are nearly impossible to produce as a single component, or that would not be sustainable in a production environment. Our goal is to work with the customer and provide design to support that both satisfies the part requirements and can be repeated in a production manufacturing setting.
Our engineers will engage early in the design process to help determine whether making one component in multiple parts is the proper strategy. While this initially may seem more costly, usually two simple components will be more cost effective than one very complex component. The actions in the tool, as well as the manufacturing process, are often less complicated and therefore less expensive. This design analysis often allows us to offer a more affordable tool and part price.
The more robust designs also gives you the confidence to know that your component will not be in jeopardy of a manufacturing issue. This will give you the peace of mind knowing that your supply chain will not be interrupted.
We will present all options while we work with your team and detail the cost breakdown for every item. We want our customers to have successful product launches and we will not cut corners just to win a job. Our goal is to make your life easier. This is just one of the ways we hope to do that.
