In-house Production Costs Reduced and Structural Weldments Eliminated
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (Mar. 1, 2016) -- - CCE, a leading mechanical and electromechanical design, engineering, and manufacturing services provider, reduced the cost of a simulator by simplifying the assembly design.
CCE engineers re-designed a large assembly structure by replacing in-house manufactured structural posts with bought-out components. Based on the assembly function, structural strength and rigidity were considered key factors in selecting the replacement parts. The re-design was done in collaboration with the end-client and because of efficient communication, only a few design iterations were needed.
CCE’s engineering design services team received a request to create a simplified design of this particular simulator assembly, a type of project that CCE has had a great deal of experience in. Based on the client’s input, CCE’s team chose to introduce fabricated extrusion blocks, which reduced the cost of in-house production and eliminated structural weldments by using fasteners. CCE’s team investigated the availability of the extrusion blocks from client-approved vendors. Upon selection of the replacement parts, CCE’s team performed positional analysis to create a simplified design of the existing assembly. On completion of this re-design and acceptance by the client, a design check was performed at the client’s work site.
CCE completed the design by providing a new set of drawings for all of the parts and the assembly. The client was very pleased with the outcome and appreciated CCE’s value addition to the design.
Since 1989, CCE ( www.cceintl.com) has served a diverse industry base by providing speed and certainty in delivering engineering and manufacturing services, with a zero-defect guarantee. With U.S. offices in Michigan and New Jersey, as well as a state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing development center in Chennai, India, CCE focuses on providing mechanical & electromechanical engineering design to organizations, worldwide, and manufacturing complex engineered components with risk mitigation.
