From engineering drawings and 3D modeling to product specs and process instructions, Flatworld offers full service machine design services. Flatworld integrates practical experience and proven expertise in designing for assembly in today's manufacturing environments.
Flatworld's clients have benefited from our machine design services by shortening design cycles by nearly 60% and by moving to cutting-edge design platforms. Flatworld has challenged 2D design methods and innovatively used 3D tools to offer complete digital prototyping of whole assemblies. Digital prototypes can be visualized, verified and tested on-screen without having to incur the manufacturing time and material costs required for creating physical prototypes. This allows you to reduce design cycle time and cut production costs substantially.
Leverage our machine design services and reduce cycle time by as much as 60%.
Outsource to Flatworld and save on machine design and development time and on production costs.
Flatworld's Machine Design Solutions: Industry Verticals
With a broad background in machine design, we work across a range of industry verticals with special expertise in:
Automated assembly machinery
Building and construction
Process industry plant and equipment
Tools and Tooling
Machine Design Methodology: Flatworld
Flatworld studies the manufacturing and assembly set up of clients before devising a customized design strategy that best suits the client's needs. Flatworld believes in total transparency and clear communication at all stages of the design cycle. We offer excellent consultancy and design services with a mix of on-site and offshore design resources to augment the client's in-house capabilities.
Where necessary, Flatworld enables a smooth transition from 2D to 3D design tools with minimum reworking and disruptions. While transitioning Flatworld:
Handles legacy 2D data efficiently
Keeps downtime to a minimum
Manages productivity losses
Realizes benefits of 3D at the earliest
Provides technical support and ongoing training
Machine Design Tools: Expertise
At Flatworld, most design for manufacture and assembly is accomplished in a paperless environment using state-of-the-art CAD tools. We assess client needs to determine what design software best addresses their business needs with a special focus on large assembly functionality, ease-of-use, learning curve, price and communication capabilities of the design software vis-â-vis the client's capabilities. Flatworld has expertise across a range of design and drafting tools such as:
Where design for manufacturing and assembly involves complex, high-speed and multiple CAM-driven mechanisms, it is near impossible and expensive to make physical models and test them each time. Flatworld has integrated virtual 3D prototyping into our design methodology which enables creation, animation and testing of digital prototypes on screen. Digital prototypes result in:
Sophisticated visualization modules
Save time and material costs that would have gone into creating physical prototypes
Experiments with multiple model versions
Review, modification and remodeling with ease
Animation, shading and rotation for enhanced visualization of even complex assemblies
Verification of designs against product and design specs
Highlights of Machine Design Services from Flatworld
Flatworld uses a variety of tools and technologies to offer customers the flexibility to review designs, accommodate changes and modifications and reduce cycle times.
Our clients benefit in many ways with our machine design services:
Shorten design cycles
Reduce time-to-market for clients in high pressure selling environments
Minimize errors and rework
Reduce design and development costs
Transition to 3D modeling
Automated design of assemblies
Import/Export data with other software packages
Flatworld also offers value added services to clients in the form of finite element analysis, 3D modeling and completed sets of eDrawings, to help customers visualize exactly what they are getting and how it meets the product specs. Sophisticated animating tools are used to create animation from 3D models to show on-screen sub-assembly or an assembly functionalities.
Flatworld's experience and expertise in machine design for manufacture and assembly extends across multiple design platforms. We can help you shorten design cycles by nearly 60%, reduce development time and costs of production. Better designs, improved accuracy and faster time-to-market with Flatworld can give you the edge you're your competition that can spell business success.
