Quality Engineering’s Design Department is capable of producing high quality, cost effective, tool designs to satisfy all your tooling requirements. Our designs are machine shop friendly, cutting initial build costs as well as future repair costs. We use industry leading Unigraphics NX software on top of the line workstations, which allows the tools to be designed quickly and efficiently, and changes can easily be incorporated. This is especially important when the tools are being designed concurrently with the product they are intended for. We can work with your 3D data or paper drawings. When the design is complete we can supply CAD files and/or paper drawings.
Tools we design include milling, drilling, grinding, EDM and assembly/disassembly fixtures. Clamping can be done manually, hydraulically, or pneumatically depending on the situation and your needs. We also design a wide variety of gages from simple template gages and go/no-go gages to complex gages that have multiple checks. Gages can be functional gages or variable gages depending on your requirements.
Quality Engineering has a full staff of Tool Designers, Detailers and Checkers with an average experience of over 20 years each. All are highly skilled in the use of Unigraphics and CATIA with good tool design practices. They also work closely with the shop to insure our customers get the best tool possible.
