FPD Engineering

Engineering and Model Based Definition

Advanced engineering and the use of high end software packages to design, simulate and validate all manufacturing processes employed at our facility, has been the core of FPD’s highly successful business model. FPD interfaces with the majority of our customers via transfer of models using CATIA, Pro-E, STEP or IGES data sets. Pro-E is FPD’s primary modeling software (CAD); Pro-Manufacturer is our CAM package; VERICUT, Forge-3 and ANSYS are used for process validation and simulation. Off-line CMM programs are generated with PC-DEMIS.

FPD has extensive experience integrating Model Based Product Definition (MBPD) into our engineering and manufacturing systems and we offer complete engineering services to our customers including forging design. The integration of our manufacturing background in machining and forging with our comprehensive engineering group provides us with the tools required to run cost optimization models. FPD is uniquely qualified to determine the lowest manufacturing cost for forged vs. machined products being sensitive to part geometry, design maturity and production requirements. Our engineering department enables FPD to constantly push the limits of lead time, first part quality and cost.
