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 that your project comes in on time.

Many variables affect whether a project will stay in budget, meet the production schedule, and function 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 to a quality finished product. We have a full-time metal fab engineering department utilizing 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.

Our Software:

    • Solid Works Solid Modeling
    • AutoCAD
    • Amada AP100

Value Engineering 

As the leaders in metal engineering services in Chicago, our goal is efficiency without sacrificing quality. We are experts at value engineering, which analyzes and improves the manufacturing process from design through construction, including administrative and business considerations. We can achieve an optimal balance between quality and cost with proper analysis, which means the best possible value for you.

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 that we can 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. 

After a thorough analysis, our engineers will:

  • 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

Value Engineering - Manufacturability

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 out information from our customer on the performance of what we supply and welcome feedback. 

Value Engineering - Functionality

Just as we look for ways to manufacture components more efficiently, we also seek out ways to make a product perform better on it’s own and with any component it’s integrated with. If we can change the design of a component so it integrates better with other components, 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 will be. That benefits everyone.

Value Engineering - Quality

We firmly believe that better quality is not always better. We believe in the appropriate quality for the application. There is no need to overengineer a product if a lesser gauge or material will be sufficient.  In the end, different quality or durability is merely an unnecessary cost. In the same vein, if we see that a product would benefit from a more expensive process, material, or finishing method, we will suggest that too.

Value Engineering - Price

We use the same philosophy in the price of a product with our quality recommendations. We'd like 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 point out areas where the price can be reduced.

Some areas where we can reduce the price:

  • Material type

  • Component dimensions

  • Material Gauge

  • Fastening techniques

  • Packaging

  • Finishing method

  • Manufacturing process

New Product Development 

Do you have a new product that you’d like developed? We can help with all stages from concept and design to prototype and production. Our steel fabricators and engineers have decades of experience bringing concepts 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 share 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 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 scrutinized to ensure compliance with your specification is achieved. Our engineers thoroughly examine each component for production quality, functionality, and cost. All of our up-front precision work allows us to produce a component that performs flawlessly for you. Our team’s excellence in project management and communication ensures that at each stage of the development process the product is tested, assessed for meeting your specifications, and that you are kept informed about the project’s developments.

New product development phases Accurate can support:

  • Initial concept
  • Preliminary cost estimation
  • Design
  • Prototyping
  • Final cost estimation
  • Testing
  • Redesign
  • Initial fabrication
  • Production
