Multifab Design & Engineering Capabilities

Multifab offers a vast range of engineering skills and expertise necessary to support our customer’s needs. Our engineering staff has a proven record of working with our customers and or partners to come up with innovative designs & application oriented custom engineered products with cost effective solutions. Multifab’s expert engineering team co-ordinates all aspects of engineering from a concept through preliminary design, analysis, post processing & final design optimization to ensure the highest quality of design.

Multifab maintains the state of the art CAD/CAM technologies which are specifically oriented towards the sheet metal manufacturing industry. Our wide variety of CAD capabilities has always been an added value to our customers. Also, these design tools offer the engineers a luxury to reverse engineer various existing products from samples or drawings as the case may be. The design software also drastically reduces the need for a prototype for form fit and function verification thereby reducing our manufacturing costs. Additionally, the reduced need for prototyping substantially shortens the time-span between concept and finished production units. Multifab uses and supports the following design packages and formats.

Design Packages
  • Solidworks
  • AutoCAD
  • Metalsoft / AMADA AP100US
  • Mitsubishi-COM tool (for Mitsubishi Laser)
  • Visio
  • Orcad
Supported Formats
  • *.sldprt, *.sldasm, *.slddrw
  • *.dxf, *.dwg
  • *.asm, *.par
  • *.stl
  • *.prt, *.xpr, *.asm, *.xas
  • Parasolid, Step, IGES

These design packages have the capability for parameter defined designs in complex configurations that make it very convenient to adapt to any modifications or design changes in future. The software also offers 3D modeling and assembly capabilities. This allows us to re-engineer a 2D drawing (from the customer or our own legacy data) into 3D and generate an accurate flat configuration of the sheet metal part which would be needed to achieve the dimensions on the formed part.

Multifab maintains a very good protocol of interacting with the customer during the process of design. This helps in the process of designing a customized product for the customer’s unique application. An E-drawing (3D CAD model- Self executable) can be sent out for review and approval before the product proceeds to manufacturing. The end user can take measurements off an E-Drawing file, rotate it, hide parts for better viewing etc. This provides an excellent opportunity for a detailed design review.

We would welcome an opportunity to prove our expertise and capabilities to work with you and provide the product you need.
