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.

How One Company Reduced Costs by 50%

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Mar 15, 2016 9:00:00 AM

All manufacturers face challenges. Some of the most common being bottlenecks or limitations to their processes which force higher costs than necessary,thus limiting their markets potential. These challenges can be made even more acute when spread over different vendors or situations where one limitation might cause a cascading effect with other vendors,  creating even more challenges that can be potentially catastrophic.

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.

The Single Stage Operation Your Manufacturing Needs

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Feb 16, 2016 9:00:00 AM

The traditional approach to the manufacturing and assembling of small components and products is a combination of fabrication and machining processes. This is especially the case for the low-volume production of delicate parts where manufacturing tolerances are critical.

Deep Drawn: Cutting Cost In Production

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Feb 11, 2016 10:00:00 AM

Deep Drawing manufacturing processes offers significant cost efficiency over other manufacturing methodologies. This is particularly true in cases where specific parts have complex geometries or require a high degree of precision and accuracy. Of course, even more cost savings can be achieved with the Deep Drawn process when simple geometries are necessary or parts are required to be seamless. When coupled with the fact that the deep drawing process can reliably be undertaken with a wide range of materials, the potential for cost saving on a per unit basis becomes apparent.

How to Identify If Your Current Manufacturing Process Takes Too Much Time

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Dec 22, 2015 1:30:00 PM

Many devices used by industry, law enforcement and other agencies have a cylindrical shape. Typical examples include pencil torches, writing and marking instruments and medical devices. The outer casing may be open at both ends, at one end only or be domed. For cosmetic or functional reasons, the outer casing is often polished, anodized, powder coated or plated.

Best Materials to Use When Deep Drawing Medical Components

Posted by Rachel Daugherty on Jun 30, 2015 10:59:33 AM

Over the decades, medical instruments have evolved from crudely crafted and rustic devices into what many might feel are modern works of manufacturing art. As the techniques of industry changed in line with new and tighter regulations, the resulting products became more precise, more reliable, and definitely more sanitary.
