Design for Manufacturability, or DFM, is an engineering practice that takes into account not just the way a product will look or function, but also how it will be produced. By applying DFM principles to new or existing products, manufacturers can improve product quality while optimizing cost and delivery time.
According to Eagle Alloy CTO, Nic Tarzwell, "DFM is the measure of all the steps involved to produce the component cost effectively while ensuring it meets (or exceeds) expectations of form, fit and function." In order to optimize Design for Manufacturability, the customer and the supplier must work together to determine the best design and process for producing quality-finished products at the least cost.
The Eagle Group will be at Design-2-Part 2019 in Santa Clara, CA, May 22 and 23. We hope you can join us at the show!
At Design-2-Part, you'll find over 300 categories of manufacturing services on display. The show is designed to help manufacturers find quality suppliers, discover new technologies and solve manufacturing problems. Design-2-Part attendees love the hands-on aspect of the show, with so many suppliers available to answer questions and help turn ideas into reality.
The Eagle Group will hold a booth for both days of the show, with representatives of all four of our companies in attendance. We'd be happy to meet and discuss any of your questions and concerns in person. Design-2-Part is a great environment to learn more about new processes, materials and practices in the manufacturing industry.
The 2019 American Foundry Society CastExpo & Metalcasting Congress is coming up at the end of April, and we hope you can join us in Atlanta for the event. Representatives from all Eagle Group companies will be in attendance, ready to provide expertise in metalcasting, machining, product development and inspection.
Stop by our booth (#424) and speak to our sales or engineering teams regarding the capabilities of the various Eagle Group of companies. Learn the benefits of and the differences between our shell and investment processes, as well as the many fine components made in our aluminum foundry. Our machining capabilities will also be on display.
Eagle Group is excited to announce that we will be exhibiting in booth #358 at the Greater Chicago Design-2-Part Show www.d2p.com that is coming to Schaumburg, Illinois May 10-11, 2017.
