CAB Incorporated | Over 30 Years of Excellence

Design Engineering & Modeling Using Latest DFM Techniques

When you turn to CAB Incorporated for design engineering and modeling services, you are embracing an organization whose partners are at the level of world class. Not only can CAB engineer and design your concept after extensive research and development, they can model it, prototype it, and move directly into the manufacturing process. CAB’s extensive foundry, forging, fabrication and machining experience provides a strong background for assisting customers with “design for manufacturability.” Their overseas operations enable them to lower costs and improve processes, passing the benefits along to their customers.

Models are formed using directional and progressive solidification processes within castings. From models, CAB then uses finite element, failure, stress, and metallurgical engineering analyses to design fixtures for tools and machines. CAB features a full complement of mechanical, metallurgy, foundry, and electrical engineers who use casting and forging processes to design, engineer, and model products for OEMs and the solar and hydraulic industries. In addition to products, complex systems for waste removal vehicles, towing equipment, and agricultural equipment can also be designed, engineered, and modeled. Destructive, non-destructive, hardness, ultrasonic, and X-ray testing services are used to confirm the integrity of all parts and components designed, engineered, and modeled by CAB, although they can also test parts if they were not the manufacturer. Always seeking to control and improve quality, CAB’s quality control experts constantly monitor, measure, and analyze their processes. Available documentation takes the form of material tests, dimensional inspections, heat treatment charts, and the results of FMEA and PPAP testing. ISO 9001 and 14000 certified, CAB also offers full pattern shop, kitting, design fixturing, and gauging services.

Six Sigma Black Belts on CAB’s staff rigorously maintain efficient, lean manufacturing standards, in addition to TS 16949 QMS, ASTM, ANSI, and ASME Y14.5 guidelines. AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and Pro/E CAD file formats are all acceptable to CAB.

In a global economy it pays to partner with a service provider who can offer the benefits of extensive overseas operations. Contact CAB Inc. directly for further information, or review the following table.
