Eastek International offers many customized value-added services in order to create innovative solutions that save you money and time, adding value to your company.
DESIGN FOR MANUFACTURABILITY
Design for Manufacturing and Design for Assembly are the integration of product design and process planning into one: Design for Manufacturability (DFM). Design for Assembly is concerned with reducing product assembly cost: minimizing number of assembly operations and individual parts tend to be more complex in design. Design for Manufacturing is concerned with reducing overall part production cost: minimizing the complexity of manufacturing operations. Together, the overall objective is to design a product that is as easily and economically manufactured as possible. The importance of DFM is emphasized by the fact that about 70% of manufacturing costs of a product (cost of materials, processing, and assembly) are determined by design decisions. Production decisions (such as process planning or machine tool selection) are responsible for only 20%, with the remaining 10% being other processes involved. In very simple terms applying a good DFM, integration should reduce the cost and difficulty of manufacturing.
The benefits of vertical integration come from the greater capacity it gives organizations to control access to inputs (and to control the cost, quality, and delivery times of those inputs). V.I. requires a company to focus not only on its core business but also on several difficult areas such as sourcing materials and manufacturing.
Vertical Integration allows Eastek to control production from beginning to end. Our core manufacturing capabilities are all done in-house.
FULL LIFE CYCLE MANAGEMENT
For companies, the concept of FLCM takes into consideration the entire vision of effectively managing and connecting all information related to the process and production needed to design, produce, validate, support, and maintain and manufactured products.
Often used as an umbrella concept that includes engineering CAD, FLCM is an enabling framework to help connect, organize, control, manage, track, consolidate and centralize all the mission-critical information that affects a product. FLCM offers a process to streamline collaboration and communication between product managers, engineering, design, manufacturing, quality, and other key disciplines. FLCM helps track information related to safety and control of components especially for us in the medical device and industrial control industries.
A robust FLCM framework improves the development and management of the Engineering Bill of Materials (EBOM), Manufacturing Bill of Materials (MBOM), requirements management, sourcing, document storage, collaboration, workflow – and other areas all essential to product development and finalization.
As product complexity and connective increase over time, it becomes more important that FLCM covers the breadth of a product’s lifecycle, integrating cross-discipline product development, manufacturing, and field service, enabling collaboration and flexible processes across the extended enterprise, including suppliers, customers, partners, service/maintenance, etc.
WHITE ROOM / CLEAN ROOM READY
Eastek has multiple clean room ready and controlled environments. Within our clean room ready controlled environment we have the ability to compress mold, thermoform, rotary press, die cut, and package medical device components and full products.
