Burtek‘s seasoned team of experienced and capable engineers complimented with a professional engineering staff, offer comprehensive design engineering services that encompass product design and development, design for manufacturability, analytical engineering and rapid prototyping. Burtek commits engineering resources to its customers early in the product development life-cycle to help them improve product design, reduce costs, win proposals, and accelerate time to market. The engineering staff combines industry expertise with the latest advanced computer aided design (“CAD”) software to develop fabrication plans, identify and source raw materials, and develop proprietary manufacturing processes, all of which enables Burtek to rapidly develop product prototypes and reduce its customers’ time to market. Design for manufacturability (“DFM”) techniques allow Burtek engineers to create designs that represent significant improvements over its customers’ initial design which in turn leads to Burtek ownership of the final product design. Burtek’s engineers utilize the latest design, engineering and manufacturing technology and enterprise-wide integrated information systems in the market, including a variety of sophisticated software tools to perform reliability and functional analyses such as finite element analysis (“FEA”). These analyses are critical to Burtek’s ability to shorten design and product development lead times. In conjunction with CAD, DFM and reliability and functional analyses, Burtek utilizes VISUAL Integrated Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”) software. In VISUAL, Burtek engineers plan every operation for every part of the final product allowing managers to track parts and processes with detailed fabrication drawings and associated product data stored in VISUAL.
Burtek designs products using three dimensional parametric solid models (ProEngineer), creates technical data packages, training manuals, product configuration and development specifications
Design for Manufacture is a disciplined approach that requires engineers to consider various design alternatives early in the product development process to arrive at an optimal design solution for a given set of customer requirements.
New products are structurally analyzed using Finite Element Modeling, which significantly reduces risk of failure on new products.
Failure Modes and Effects Analysis is used in new product development to evaluate the potential failure modes as a tool to quantify risk and produce more reliable designs.
All product design and product manufacturing methods are placed under configuration control, which provides complete content management of the product.
