At Century-Tywood, Sheet metal Design and engineering is the building block on which everything else in the process will be built upon. Century-Tywood has understood this from our early days before the advent of CadCam systems and continues to emphasize our engineering approach to every part we produce.
It is our preference to work with native files from design programs such as Solidworks where we are able to review how an individual product or multi-part assembly can be manufactured with the most efficient and cost effective methodology. Other file formats are also helpful such as a DXF, and when not available, working from revision controlled drawings can still get results but with more manpower. For the fastest and most effiecient processing of jobs from quote to dock, detailed electronic files and models will always produce the most reliable and cost effective process and give our customers the greatest opportunity to meet short times lead times.
Our approach however, is always the same. We first look at the manufacturability of a part and then look for ways where we may be able to make adjustments to parts that can save time and money in the operation and to the customer.
Technology is moving us closer and closer to automating our upfront process and Century-Tywood puts an emphasis on investing in the latest technology from quoting and engineering to the shop floor. Our goal is to always make the most repeatedly consistent product and to build products where quality can be designed into the part and the process. To ensure these efforts continue, we work with our customers and in many cases help to educate them on the fastest and most efficient methods and formats needed to get the job done on time and on budget.
Our engeering experts are always available for review of your products to see how we might be able to improve reliability and reduce cost both through engineering and production efficiency.
