Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is one of the best practices our engineers follow to ensure your part does not require expensive secondary operations which can often represent as much as 80% of the component cost. Our engineers use a DFM methodology that optimizes casting manufacturability while preserving functionality. Here’s what this entails:

  • Ejector Pins

    The location of ejector pins in a component is an important part of the design. Our engineers will work closely with you from early in your design process to determine the best location.

  • Draft Requirements

    Draft is necessary on surfaces parallel to the direction of the tool draw because it facilitates the ejection of the part from the die.

  • Fillet Radii

    Small but important in manufacturing, fillet radii are often overlooked by component designers.
