3 Reasons to Use Domestic Manufacturing Companies

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Mar 31, 2016 9:35:00 AM

Given the on going dynamics of a fluid marketplace, it can be a challenge when seeking suppliers as to utilize a domestic manufacturer or a chance on a foreign opportunity. While it is true that foreign suppliers offer their own set of advantages, these do not supplant the advantages offered by engaging with a domestic manufacturer. Domestic suppliers offer the opportunity to engage with consistent quality control, quick product turnaround times and more effective communication, thus supplying a more appropriate product for your needs. Success depends on all the aspects coming together and a domestic manufacturer can ensure those aspects in ways not available to the foreign manufacturer.

3 Tips For Finding the Right Manufacturer for Your Needs

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Mar 24, 2016 9:00:00 AM

There are many manufacturers available on the market and this can present a challenge when you need the right manufacturer for your manufacturing requirements. It is important to weed through the marketing hype and buzzwords to get down to what a manufacturer can do for you. Making a selection based solely on cost is not wise as while looking at price only, these prices can mean poor quality, late deliveries, freight and more. In most cases, the end cost is much higher than anticipated, and the domestic quoted part price when only analyzing piece part prices.  Intangible costs need to be considered.

Inside the Design of Writing Instruments

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Mar 17, 2016 9:00:00 AM

Being much more than a simple tube filled with ink, a writing instrument takes a quality design to make it mightier than the sword. As such, the internal parts have to consist of the highest quality and dependability and that means precision crafting of the internal components. The way to achieve this is by using small, deep drawn parts that are constructed of the correct material and formed into shape with modern techniques.

Deep Drawn Methodology and Its Benefits

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Mar 10, 2016 8:30:00 AM

It has long been understood that pressing or stamping is an economical method for manufacturing complex parts. Although there's a relatively high initial cost to manufacture tooling, deep drawn stamping is usually cheaper and always faster than alternative processes such as machining, fabrication and injection molding.

5 Things to Know About Deep Drawn

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Mar 3, 2016 9:30:00 AM

Metal forming is one of the most important manufacturing processes available for the production of an expansive array of parts and products. Inside the overarching category of metal formation and fabrication, deep drawn methodology is one that offers the most value, in relation to cost effectiveness, production efficiency and time efficiency - one of the driving reasons why deep drawn manufacturing has gained wide adoption. Importantly, when engaging in the process, there are five key elements to keep in mind, as each of these concepts have an effect on your end design. These elements include material type, material thickness, stress distribution, part geometry, and draw ratio, in no specific order.

How To Increase Production While Cutting Cost

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Feb 23, 2016 9:00:00 AM

When considering manufacturing, material and production are key elements to determining the overall cost benefits of the various processes. While traditional methodologies such as stamping still have their role to play in the different fabrications of parts, deep drawing manufacturing offers significant savings, in terms of production, over other manufacturing technologies. The viability of these savings are based on the fundamental economics of the process and the labor required to handle these processes. Thus providing a more accurate prediction of production cycle related costs. The overall analysis of cost benefits indicate deep drawing manufacturing is more efficient at containing costs and preventing overruns than other methods.

Deep Drawn: Improving Quality and Quantity

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Feb 18, 2016 9:30:00 AM

The deep drawn manufacture of components is unique in its overall adaptability. Few people who look at the barrel of an expensive pen realize that this was probably deep drawn and not machined or formed from tube. The technology goes much further in that all sorts of products can be made using deep drawing processes and finished part quality is high. As with any pressing operation, production volumes are high and unit costs low.
