Design for manufacturability (DFM)

Fastening technologies and assembly techniques are evolving to meet continued demands for reliability, throughput, and ease of manufacturability. One trend sees designers involving parts manufacturers in early design phases to ensure design for manufacturability (DFM). Another sees the fasteners themselves becoming smaller, stronger, lighter, and easier to install by automated and robotic assembly systems. Customers engaging leading parts manufacturers earlier in the design phase can save time and money. When involved in the design phase, parts manufacturers can identify and address potential problems with manufacturability while meeting specific installation requirements.

Mauri Design Engineers collaborated with the OEM to overcome these issues. The resulting connector design reduced costs by 50%. Mauri design incorporated a cold-formed primary process with a secondary operation. This combined process delivers technical performance that normally requires a machining process, while meeting the OEM's commercial targets. Fasteners are increasingly being asked to work harder and smarter, and fastener companies like Mauri are answering the call by developing lighter, smaller, and stronger fasteners that are easier to install. Sometimes this means moving from thicker and heavier steels to thinner alloys, or less conventional materials such as aluminum. To that end, Mauri has increased its focus on fastener innovation by adding more engineers to its R&D team.
