The Engineering Department at Parker Fabrication has extensive 3D modeling capabilities in order to provide customers with design options and support for new product visualzation. We are a trusted partner for continuous improvement of existing products, manufacturing aided cost reduction initiatives, and reverse engineering.
Some of our engineering specialties apply to:
- Reverse Engineering – Specializing in complex assemblies and welded tubing assemblies
- Exhaust Systems – Specializing in industrial, marine, and retrofits for ease of maintenance or emissions compliance
- Diesel Emissions – Specializing in emissions compliance retrofit packages
Fabricated parts inspection (CMM) of components or larger fabricated assemblies is the round trip of quality control that the engineeering department handles daily. Complex fabrication makes results in more possible variances and so a 3D surface point model for quality checks removes the human element of measurement science from the equation.
Engineers at Parker Fabrication create complex 3D models with software like Creo Parametric (Pro-E) and Solidworks. The software speeds the development of detailed assembly models that the engineers can then walk out to the shop floor and discuss, illustrate or troubleshoot with the fabricators. We can realize design concepts generating GD&T controlled drawings adhering to the geometric dimensioning and tolerancing standard ASME Y14.5
