Design for Manufacturing & Process Development

Outside of our precision manufacturing capabilities, the biggest value proposition Petersen Precision offers our customers is our DFM and process development service. Through design for manufacturing, we can optimize customer part designs for better manufacturability, price and quality.

Early Involvement Equals Better Results

In our experience, we’ve found that the earlier we get involved in a customer’s design process, the easier it is to find the balance of quality and cost that they need. We achieve this balance by making the manufacturing processes required as efficient and precise as possible for your cost targets.

Because we offer a number of unique manufacturing processes, like fineblanking and various kinds of Lapping / Honing, it is better work with our customers in the earliest stages of part design. In this way, we can design in (or out) the ideal processes and technologies to improve the quality and precision of finished parts and to streamline manufacturing as much as possible.

Tell Us What You Need & We’ll Achieve It

Our DFM and process development service makes it as easy as possible for you to get the precision parts you need. Just show us where you need to go—the fit/form/function of your part—and we’ll get you there as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

Petersen Precision’s experts can work from your CAD/CAM designs, or reverse engineer your existing parts through our inspection technologies. As needed, we can develop entirely new processes, including automation and support, to help us deliver parts that match your exact specifications.

We Get It Done Fast & Done Right

To ensure that your precision parts meet your unique performance and application requirements, we will send 3D CAD models for you to inspect and edit as needed. We want to guarantee that your parts are done right the first time. We emphasize rapid responses to transition your designs into small, medium, or large production runs as quickly as possible.

Because timing is often critical, we can develop multiple manufacturing paths to help reduce your time to market. Depending on your needs, we can produce parts in the early stage quantities you need in low volumesvia Processes A and B, and shift future production to more efficient and less-costly Processes X and Y to support full scale production quantities.
