If you're in the business of assembling parts, you know how important it is to have the right equipment for your production needs. It is crucial to provide the necessary application information when requesting a quote to help ensure an accurate solution that fits your requirements. It may seem time-consuming to gather all of this information, but the importance of providing each piece cannot be understated.
Detailed Part Information
Why: To help appropriately size the equipment based on the forming force capacity needed and determine tooling geometry.
Part and rivet prints with pre-form and post-form dimensions: These details are fundamental in understanding the specifics of your parts and the assembly process. They help us estimate the required forming force and design suitable tooling.
Models: 3D models allow us to visualize the parts and better plan for the assembly equipment and options required.
Samples: Providing samples to assemble in our Solutions Lab allows for practical testing, ensuring the proposed solution meets your requirements.
Functional or Aesthetic Requirements
Why: To identify the assembly process needed or any special equipment considerations.
Clearly outlining your functional and aesthetic requirements helps us determine the best assembly process. Whether it's a structural or decorative component, the choice of equipment and tooling can vary.
Annual Volume Requirements
Why: To ensure the machine cycle time meets requirements and determine the necessary level of automation or number of machines.
The annual volume of parts is crucial for selecting the right equipment. Choosing high-speed automation or a manual solution depends heavily on your production volume.
Preferred or Existing Process
Why: To understand if there's an existing process you'd like to use or improve.
If you have a preferred assembly process or an existing one that you'd like to replace or enhance, sharing this information guides us in offering the best solution.
Why: So that we can provide a concept that meets your requirements.
Details such as air pressure, voltage, paint color, controls, valve specifications, and safety are essential for tailoring the equipment to your specific facility and operational requirements.
Why: To allow for collaboration in designing a concept that is conscious of your capital budget.
Your budget constraints are vital in helping us develop a solution that aligns with your financial resources. We can provide options that match your budget expectations.
Project Timing, including quote deadlines and start of production
Why: To provide a quote in a timely manner and collaborate with you to meet your deadlines.
Timeliness is critical in manufacturing. Knowing your project timeline helps us provide accurate lead time quotes and ensures we can deliver equipment on schedule.
