Smith Foundry’s Engineering Department is happy to assist with manufacturability design of castings, patterns, and core boxes. SpaceClaim 3D Modeling design software is a very useful tool utilized at Smith.
SpaceClaim helps manipulate geometry faster, easier, and more intuitively resulting in less time spent configuring geometry and more time dedicated to primary job functions such as manufacturing, analysis, and concept modeling. By working together on design very early in the process, the lead times to production can be considerably reduced and the cost of research and development can be lowered. For additional information, see the “Design Assistance” tab.
As customers’ processes and requirements evolve and change, Smith takes great pride in helping to engineer new solutions to provide a quality product. We are available for our customers, no matter what challenges are presented.
