The Client

The client is a manufacturer and supplier of spare parts used in a wide range of refrigeration compressors. Its market presence extends to the UK, Europe and Middle East.

Situation - Business Needs

The client had hundreds of fiber gaskets that needed to undergo reverse engineering in order to produce true dimensional solid models in DXF file format. The major factors warranting an offshore solution were dearth of skilled engineers and draftsmen in the local market, and client's budgetary constraints. The client was positive about the outcome of an offshore possibility, which would allow savings in operating costs in addition to allowing it to focus on its core business goals. Apart from the cost factor, it also wanted to benefit from the competency of an outsourcing vendor to create better operational efficiency and streamline its processes.

The client's business situation had the following components -

  • Having hundreds of gaskets reverse-engineered according to predetermined specifications
  • The gaskets needed to be shipped to an offshore location
  • Ensuring high-quality output to derive a true dimensional model of each gasket in DXF file format
  • Using the DXF files to develop shapes to cut the gaskets


Some of the key challenges faced during the course of the project were -

  • Increased complexity of job due to different shapes and sizes of the gaskets
  • Criticality of measuring, analyzing and testing each gasket design to match design intent
  • Providing the output in an editable DXF file format with true dimensional quality
  • Ensuring effectiveness and profitability of the project by working within the budgetary limitations and timeline provided by the client
