Design for Manufacture
In today’s marketplace, the cost of component manufacture is equally important as form, fit and function. With over 15 years hands-on manufacturing experience in a number of diverse industry sectors, White Horse CAD Limited are able to offer a comprehensive design for manufacture (DFM) service, with consideration given to current best practice manufacturing techniques.
We strongly believe that a designer should be able to visualise the manufacturing process for any component they work on. This is only possible if the designer has a thorough understanding of both state of the art and conventional manufacturing techniques and processes. We have “real world” experience in designing products and fixtures manufactured using the following processes.If you would like more information please contact us.
