Rising demand for sheet metal doors and windows requires manufacturers to fabricate products with minimal scrap and rework to achieve on-time delivery. DFM strategy for sheet metal designs and modern design tools help achieve these goals.
As sheet metal door and window demand is all set to rise till 2022, manufacturers also need to meet the quality and control material scrap in order to stay competitive in the markets. Whether it is for residential or commercial buildings, the engineering design teams have no other option than adopting DFM strategies and implement them with design automation tools.
As the market landscape for metal windows and doors fabricators changes, CAD engineers will need to have a clear understanding of fabrication shop operations in order to design accurately. Right from designing flanges, ribs, holes to welding and cutting operations, design engineers should be able to keep the tolerances accurate. It can be achieved by adopting right CAD tool such as SolidWorks or Inventor or collaborate with and an external third party CAD service provider expert.
