Costing of mechanical parts and carpentry including raw material costs, machining and sheet metal working times and machine times.
From a 3D model coming from a CAD design software (SolidWorks, CREO, CATIA, Inventor, SolidEdge, NX, ProEngineer) or STEP files (.stp), geometric recognition of the components in the bill of materials, and automatic calculation of raw materials (steel, stainless steel, bronze, aluminium, brass, plastic, rolled, drawn, round, bar, sheet metal . …), operations (bending, turning, milling, cutting, rolling, welding, control, …), and machines (traditional milling machine, CNC milling machine, lathe, water jet, laser, plasma, oxycutting, bending machine, press, …) required for the production.
The machining cost models associated with these analyses include: cutting speed, feed per revolution, rotational speed, depth and number of passes and the associated cutting tools such as solid carbide cutter, drills, inserts, …. Welding analyses include e.g. apothegm, number of passes, thicknesses, bead types (continuous, discontinuous, spot) and cover MIG, TIG, electrode, robotic laser technologies.
Possibility to add transport costs and heat treatments (hardening, nitriding, annealing, stabilisation, tempering …), surface treatments (burnishing, anodic oxidation, shot blasting, sand blasting, …), surface coatings (cataphoresis, electroless nickel plating, zinc plating, galvanising, painting …).
