Product development has historically involved two divided processes: first, designing a product, and then manufacturing it. The use of separate, non-integrated CAD (design) and CAM (manufacturing) tools to develop products has created a communications barrier between design and manufacturing, resulting in cost, time, and quality issues.
The common manufacturing challenges we hear are:
- Design changes are hard to communicate to manufacturing.
- Work instructions are unclear and need to be managed more effectively.
- We need to reduce tooling costs and adopt a lean manufacturing strategy.
Our manufacturing solutions will provide you with:
- TECHNOLOGY that communicates product and manufacturing information effectively in 3D.
- A manufacturing planning PROCESS linked to product designs and change management.
- MANUFACTURE custom fixtures and tooling with a 3D printer, reducing manufacturing costs.
- PEOPLE solutions that helps manufacturers learn new techniques.
Companies embracing model-based definition methodologies report savings in multiple areas, including a reduction in manufacturing error, a decrease in scrap and rework costs, and lower procurement costs for purchased parts.
Communicate in 3D to ensure that you receive the latest and most accurate data
With SOLIDWORKS MBD technology you can receive product and manufacturing information (PMI) directly in 3D, bypassing time-consuming 2D processes, and eliminating potential problems.
Using SOLIDWORKS Simulation designers will verify designs before moving onto production, and with SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional, will ensure that you have the right version.
SOLIDWORKS MBD (Model Based Definition) software is a drawingless manufacturing solution for communicating product and manufacturing information (PMI)
SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional extends the capabilities of PDM Standard to allow your entire enterprise to easily share data and collaborate on designs.
With Aras Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP), product teams can define manufacturing processes at the same time and at multiple plants, therefore bridging the gap between engineering and manufacturing.
Aras Innovator PLM will help with your Manufacturing Process Planning (MPP) BOM Management
Bring together the Manufacturing Process Plan, Work Instructions and MBOM making them interdependent and automatically synchronized as changes occur
You can eliminate time-consuming manual processes and costly EBOM/MBOM conflicts, as well as improve efficiency by synchronizing process plans, MBOMs and work instructions.
With Aras Innovator the Javelin Process Team provides organizations with BOM Management by connecting multiple sources of information in a single database.
Adopt an innovative Lean manufacturing strategy by 3D printing manufacturing tools on demand.
Custom tools built directly from CAD can be ready for use in as little as a day.
Prove the quality of your design before going to production with a 3D printed prototype
With Stratasys 3D printers manufacturers are able to 3D print their manufacturing tools, this allows them to gain the agility to embrace customization, respond quickly to market changes, and shrink the cost and risk associated with traditional tool production.
3D printed tooling examples include jigs and fixtures, composite tooling, molds, forming tools and casting masters. Learn more about 3D printing tools and production 3D printers below:
A workhorse 3D printer for engineers that require demanding flexibility to print larger-sized or many parts in an array of engineering-grade materials with high speed and unfailing throughput.
The Fortus 900mc Gen II is the ultimate manufacturing-grade production 3D printer with the widest array of engineering-grade materials, maximum throughput, largest build platform, and highest accuracy.
Training programs are not “one-size fits all”. That is why we provide a flexible training approach to personalize your training experience. Javelin has an extensive offering of training products and solutions.
Essential training for quality control to create and collaborate more effectively
Our tailored training solution provides a learning path and course content that is designed to target the specific needs of design and engineering people.
Also If you need custom courseware for your people then we can also provide that service. The Javelin training team can customize existing training courses or even create brand new courseware specifically for your business.
Here are the courses you'll need to optimize your manufacturing:
The 3D Printing Essentials course will show you how to optimize and 3D Print your 3D models more cost effectively to become an Additive Manufacturing expert
This training course is designed to help you understand and interpret the fundamentals of GDT. It is based on the ASME Y14.5 – 2009 standard
The goal of this course is to teach you how to use SOLIDWORKS MBD to present product and manufacturing information (PMI) in a 3D PDF file
