Design Assistance/DFM

At Du Fresne Manufacturing, Design Assistance and DFM aren’t so much a service as they are a way of life. Every day we look at the way parts are designed and how they are manufactured. This includes anything from material types, all the way through the process to how the parts are packaged for shipment and everything in between. We also offer precision sheet metal fabrication services alongside our design assistance. The goal is always improvement to our process and value to our customers.

Design Assistance

Our experienced designers are focused on creating the most efficient designs for cost and function. We understand that any design is a living document as all aspects of our customer's "product definition" are taken into consideration before we begin and during the process, assuring all requirements are met.

Design For Manufacturability (DFM)

Customers tell us our DFM process is "intense". Webster's Dictionary defines intense as: Marked by or expressive of great zeal, energy, determination, or concentration. And that's what you can expect from the Du Fresne Design Assistance Team. Call us or email a set of drawings and we can show how to reduce cost, improve quality and improve your precision metal fabrication experience.

Prototypes/Advanced Manufacturing Center (AMC)

DMC’s Advanced Manufacturing center is a standalone department dedicated to prototypes and developing new processes.  Our AMC is staffed with engineers and machine operators with many years of experience to deliver industry leading performance and process development.  Call us today and let us know how we can help.
