Let us make your dream designs a reality. Accurate's team of steel fabrication engineers has the skills it takes to move your project from design through development and successful completion. When you can trust your metal fabricator to offer engineering and prototype assistance, it will keep your costs down while ensuring your project arrives on time.
Many variables affect whether a project stays within budget, meets the production schedule, and functions as needed. Accurate Metal Fabricating assists you with managing those variables in the prototyping, processing, and sheet metal engineering phases—so that your idea can be converted into a quality finished product. Our full-time metal fab engineering department utilizes advanced technology to ensure design functionality. AMF's engineering services use the latest sheet metal processing software, such as Solid Works Solid Modeling, AutoCAD, and Amada AP100, to refine your part before production even begins.
We are experts at value engineering, which analyzes and improves the manufacturing process from design through construction, including administrative and business considerations. We achieve this by utilizing an optimal balance between quality and cost with proper analysis. This results in a better product for you and often at a better price point. As Chicago's leader in value engineering, our goal is efficiency without sacrificing quality.
Accurate Metal Fabricating's project managers and engineering department excel at collaborating with manufacturers and design houses to create components and products that are more appropriately manufactured, have the appropriate quality, and are lower in cost, providing an overall better value.
Our engineers pride themselves on their ability to re-engineer a product's design and custom-tailor the manufacturing process for the best results. It's not uncommon for us to tweak the design so the component requires less material and less time to manufacture, resulting in a faster lead time and lower cost. We'll recommend new welding practices, forming techniques, and fastening options to give the ultimate functionality and quality for the components' requirements.
Develop the most efficient manufacturing process
When possible, reduce material or recommend lower-priced options
Ensure the functional requirements are met
Let you know when the quality and durability do not meet or exceed your specifications
Guarantee the product’s value is increased
Our engineers and production staff meet regularly to determine the optimal way to manufacture a component. It’s our culture to always look for better ways to produce a product. This review involves both new projects and current products. We seek information from our customers on the performance of what we supply and welcome feedback.
Just as we look for ways to manufacture components more efficiently, we also seek ways to make a product perform better independently and with any integrated part. If we can change the design of an element so it integrates better with other members, we will quickly alter the design. The better we can make a product for you and the end user, the greater product satisfaction and, ultimately, product sales. That benefits everyone.
Better quality might not work in every situation. We believe in the appropriate quality for the application. There is no need to overengineer a product if a lesser gauge or material is sufficient. In the end, different quality or durability is merely an unnecessary cost. In the same vein, if a product would benefit from a more expensive process, material, or finishing method, we suggest that too.
We use the same philosophy in the price of a product with our quality recommendations. We want to suggest only what is needed for the application. If the client would like a more robust material or higher quality for the functionality of aesthetics, we will manufacture the product to that specification. However, we feel it’s our job to highlight areas where the price can be reduced.
Some areas where we can reduce the price:
Do you have a new product that you'd like to develop? We can help with all stages, from concept and design to prototyping and production. Our steel fabricators and engineers have decades of experience bringing ideas into reality. They can leverage their knowledge of hundreds of products fabricated for dozens of other industries to your advantage. Complete confidentiality is always maintained. Your proprietary designs and processes will never be shared with a competing company. We collaborate with our customers to produce high-quality products that meet the specifications precisely and ensure that the products are manufactured efficiently and perform in the application. Accurate can utilize its ISO 9001:2008 influenced manufacturing processes to develop a consistent, high-quality product.
Accurate Metal Fabricating can quickly develop precise prototypes from your drawings. Once the prototype is fabricated, it is looked over to ensure it's done to your specification. Our engineers thoroughly examine each component for production quality, functionality, and cost. Our up-front precision work allows us to produce a piece that performs flawlessly for you. Our team's excellence in project management and communication ensures that the product is tested and assessed for meeting your specifications at each stage of the development process and that you are kept informed about the project's developments.
