Fabrication Process Support

Profile Nesting

Minimize scrap produced during cutting, using GBSI’s nesting software expertise.

Achieve maximum material utilization & minimum cutting time by optimizing the idle gun travel from one part to another part & exact dimensions of cut profiles to enhance your manufacturing efficiency

Laser Cutting Programming

Generate NC or CNC code program for laser cutting for a particular nesting layout to achieve quick gauge design & detailing for fabricated parts.

Visualize the complete cutting process beforehand and check the finished part virtually to predict operational challenges & save time and cost by achieving results the first pass

Press Brake Programming/ Bend Programming

Generate NC or CNC code program for bending machines.

Use process & software expertise to generate the required bending instructions in any machine specific language and then simulate the program in 3D environment to observe how the bending takes place to check finished parts after completion of the bending operation

Visual aids for bend programming

Visual aids for bending operation consist of visual work instructions in MS PowerPoint or Ms Excel displaying picture of the sheet metal part, instructions for bending and punching with dimension and angles , any special instructions etc. By referring to these visuals, the programmer can generate a program as required and check the finished part virtually as per the dimensions and features given in the visual aids

Quick Check Gauge Design and detailing

Every fabricated part is manufactured in a large quantity and has different profiles. In order to check the accuracy for important features like bend angle, length, punch hole dimension and position of holes on part  it is required to design a handy gauge which can be easily align on the finished part with the reference surface or edges and all the important features can be checked with the gauge as required. We can design quick gauges for fabricated parts like bend parts, punched parts etc.

Machining Process Support

Tool Path Generation

Tool Path generation is the process of generating tool movement  to form a required part from 3D model of the part. With the 3D model as an input and all required parameters set in the software, a tool motion will be generated to remove raw material from the job to form the shape and size of the model. Once tool path is generated. we can actually see how the tool moves and how the material removal takes place to form the final part.

NC/CNC Programming

In NC programming, instructions for tool and job movement will be generated using G code and M codes. Once tool path is generated and simulated then the tool movement will be converted into a G code program and then required codes for some required miscellaneous activities like coolant ON/OFF, tool change, speed, feed control etc will be added in the program. This program will be then fed directly to the CNC machine.Once job setting is done, the machine will move the tool and job as per the tool path, perform all miscellaneous activities as per program and create the finished part as required

Process Stage drawing Creation

Process stage drawing is the creation of part drawing’s at different stages of machining. The drawing shows how the finished part looks after each machining stage is performed with detail dimensioning.  It has different drawing sheets, for example, the lathe stage, then a broached part stage, then a milled stage.This drawing is used for creating the tool path and NC program in machining software and also used for checking the part after different machining stages

GBSI Engineering Outsourcing Services

Why Outsource Engineering?

Reports as well as current industry trends are a proof that US Manufacturers are facing a very big threat to their progress- the Manufacturing Skills Gap. On one hand the US manufacturers are planning to increase manufacturing over the coming years, while on the other hand, the availability of highly skilled resources is decreasing dramatically.

According to a recent study, it is being speculated that over the next decade,   nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely be needed, and 2 million are expected to go unfilled due to the skills gap.

With a lack of key skilled employees in the manufacturing and production workforce, the manufacturers risk losing productivity, efficiency and, eventually, profitability.

 

The golden solution to tackle this Omni prevalent skills gap issue ?

  • Identify the core and noncore aspects of manufacturing & design process
  • Outsource the noncore aspects to a lower cost country with high availability & low cost
  • Partner with a sourcing expert with past experience in sourcing and recruiting to develop a strategy to attract and recruit the best talent in market with lowest turnaround and lowest cost.

Skills Shortage Affects the Following Key Metrics

Overtime Cost
Production Cycle Time
Production Down Time
Scrap
Lead & Delivery Time

By outsourcing the repetitive, low importance noncore tasks you can manage to:

  • Reduce your workload
  •  Reduce overall US based workforce required
  • Cut costs on recruiting
  • Reduce the ever increasing US healthcare costs involved
