Leverage HFW's Integrated Aluminum Factory Model

Design For Manufacturing

  • Ensures clients maximize HFW's unique capabilities such as FSW complex, aluminum structures
  • Product Requirements
  • Material
  • Dimensions, tolerances, preparation, properties
  • Process
  • Material input/output, throughput, process timeline, tooling, material handling

Conceptual Product Designs

  • Process development to define material properties (if needed)
  • Initial design and trade off analysis per FRS
  • Evaluate tooling (lowest risk, highest rigidity, minimize distortion)
  • Evaluate products at the component, sub- assembly, and structural module level
  • Integration strategy to streamline products into manufacturing facility
  • Reduce scrap, labor, and time
