Metal Engineering Powered by Integration

Our design, applications, and tooling engineers can work with any design files and multiple 3D CAD file formats to improve design and manufacturability. Our established partnerships with tooling shops across North America give us the ability to find you the lowest cost and the fastest lead time on every tooling project.

Here’s how our metal engineering services add value to every step of product development:

  • Experts in SolidWorks, Pro-E, Autocad, Inventor, and Tekla BIM software
  • $200+ million of CapEx invested in deeply-integrated manufacturing capabilities and quality systems
  • In-house expertise in metal profiling, forming, welding, machining, assembly, and finishing
  • Model sharing systems allow us to work with multiple file formats: dxf, iges, step, sldprt, prt, etc.
