DFM – Design for Manufacturability

Posted on March 23, 2016 by

At St Cross Electronics Ltd we have been supporting our customers with Design for Manufacturability (DFM) for many years.  We work closely with our customers to ensure the most effective final design for efficient, high quality manufacture.

Although not a direct design house, we have over 30 years experience of manufacturing cable assemblies. So we can advise on better practices, components, sourcing on all entities involved with the design and manufacture of a cable assembly.

If this process is adopted at the start of a project it can reduce manufacturing costs.  DFM will allow potential problems to be fixed in the design phase which is the least expensive place to address them.

Other factors may affect the manufacturability such as the type of raw material, the form of the raw material, dimensional tolerances, and secondary processing such as finishing. If you get the foundations right the rest will follow.

Design for Manufacturability is a part of our business that we feel very passionate about, and we would value the opportunity to discuss any new projects with you, assisting in any way we can.

We also support rapid prototyping department, drawings and First Article Inspections.

Please contact one of our sales team to discuss your requirements in more detail and be directed to an engineer.
