Industrial products require durable parts with economical designs. PartWorks can help. With our unique combination of design and sourcing services your designers and engineers can reduce time-to-market and gain agility – while keeping costs in check.
From a design standpoint, whether you have a part you want reproduce, redesign, or design from scratch, our 3D scanning, reverse engineering and 3D CAD design services will help you model the specifications of the parts you need.
For the sourcing, we have relationships with leading U.S. and global plastic and metal manufacturers in virtually every category: including 3D printing, CNC machining, plastic injection molding, investment casting, plastic and metal extrusion, metal stamping, and precision sheet metal and fabrication in all media. We use our extensive network, supported by a cloud-based sourcing platform, to make it ourselves or find you the right manufacturing partner.
For example, we can use FARO® Edge portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) to precisely scan jigs, fixtures, check gauges and even machine replacement parts into a 3D point-cloud that can be reverse engineered into a 3D model in virtually any leading commercial or open format. From there, you (or we) have the option to reproduce or reengineer the part using your favorite 3D CAD software that can be 3D printed. Or you may choose to produce the tools or parts using more traditional methods like CNC milling or machining.
