How do you know that your design is ready to be manufactured and is optimized for performance and cost savings?
SPARK’s years of expertise in Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA) can help your team or company bridge that final gap between design and manufacturing. Our experience helps our partners anticipate the hurdles along the way to production. We help you to proactively consider factors including cost and feasibility of production, selection of materials and processes, and preparation of facilities, all the way down to the creation of a thorough bill of materials itemizing all necessary components.
The team at SPARK knows what it takes to pave the way to the production line.
Not all product improvements are obvious to the consumer. Whether it is through reducing the number of parts in your assembly or creating a more efficient design, SPARK has years of experience working with clients and manufacturers to find opportunities for cost reduction in all types of products and assemblies.
DFMA (Design for Manufacture and Assembly) is the practice of designing a product with production in mind, assuring its parts are easy to manufacture and efficient to assemble. SPARK will emphasize DFMA throughout the design process to reduce cost and create an efficient path to market for your product.
Metal design encompasses everything from sheet metal bending and weldments, to milled and turned parts, to castings. SPARK’s depth of knowledge in metal manufacturing process ensures that your design will always be ready for production.
Plastics design requires expertise not only in the wide range of material options, but also their various molding and forming processes and their respective benefits and limitations. Parts must be carefully designed to properly form without blemishes or defects and remain removable from the mold during production.
Having SPARK as a design partner means being able to go to a manufacturer with complete tool-ready documentation. This means that SPARK will supply you with everything you need, from a BOM (Bill of Materials), to detailed drawings, to allow your product to be manufactured quickly and as designed.
Moving into manufacturing means finding suppliers and vendors for every step of the supply chain. SPARK has a deep network of vendors as well as sourcing consultants that can help bring your product to life.
