Answer Precision has a highly skilled and experienced team of designers and engineers who conceptualize and design products to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. It is our goal to provide a superior, cost effective solution in each design. APT utilizes several different software packages along with years of experience to provide the customer with the most effective solution to their design or engineering needs for gauges, check fixtures, automation equipment and reverse engineering.
CAD Operating Systems:
- Cimatron E
All designs are generated around the customer’s requirements. What sets us apart and streamlines our process is that manufacturing and the customer are involved from the initial concept to approved design. This is to ensure the product is designed to completely suit the customer’s needs and it is easily manufactured. The design is approached using a “lessons learned” from past projects and the result is a high quality, robust, maintainable product.
Data management and Transfer are done internally from department to department through a seamless high speed network. External data is transferred via e-mail or FTP site.
Data back-up is done on a daily basis with an additional off-site back-up to ensure data is not lost in the event of a disaster.
All designs are produced using solid modeling or surface and wire-frame if the customer requests.
Answer Precision Tool can import and export most native files including:
- VDA, IGES, DXF, STEP
- Catia V4 & Catia V5
“Working as a team, we developed fixture designs and GD&T to meet our requirements. Answer, understanding our program timing, designed and met our delivery to support our molding trials and customer program dates. Through-out the process Answer Precision stepped up to the plate to meet our timing”
Our CAM software is integral with our CAD software eliminating translations and providing a single file for each product. All our CNC machining is performed using the latest CAM software with the programs being sent out directly to the machines through a high speed network. All our programmers have years of experience and are comfortable working with several different types of materials. Our post processors have been specially designed for the machining centers providing the most efficient machining possible. All CNC machining is performed on 3,4 or 5-axis machining centers depending on the complexity of the work.
