Reduce Your Manufacturing Costs with DFM

Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is the process of designing better products, parts or components at a lower cost. DFM helps optimize the product design by reducing part count, simplifying manufacturing techniques, and standardizing parts and materials. But design teams often lack the experience and expertise in DFM, and fail to achieve the desired benefits – such as cost savings, better quality, and faster turnaround times.

Join this session with industry expert Anthony DeTroia and learn about the different manufacturing practices that promote ease of manufacturing and result in cost savings. DeTroia will teach you (with examples) how to design parts that improve functionality, and minimize your machining challenges. He will walk you through the basics of composite and welding design/manufacturing; teach you when to apply certain dimensional tolerances; and show you how to make the best use of dimensional datums.

After attending this session, you will be better equipped to design cost-effective quality parts and assemblies. Plus, you’ll know about the different manufacturing practices that promote ease of manufacturing.
