Choosing the right manufacturing techniques for you

Choose the right manufacturing technique

Our experts at CMDE Labs manufacture your product using the right manufacturing technique for you. This eliminates the increase in the unnecessary process stages, thereby fastening the production speed and saving your cost.

The different manufacturing technique are:

  1. Electric Discharge Machining

  • Also called Subtractive Manufacturing (SM)

  • Here a desired shape is obtained using electrical discharges.

  • Material is removed from the workpiece by series of rapidly recurring current discharges between electrodes, separated by a dielectric liquid and subject to an electric voltage.

  • As distance between the two electrodes is reduced, the current intensity becomes greater than the strength of the dielectric causing it to break.

2. 3D Printing

  • Also called Additive Manufacturing(AM).

  • Used to create a 3D object in which layers of material are formed under computer control to create an object.

  • Objects can be of any shape or geometry and are produced using digital model data from a 3D model or another electronic data source such as an Additive Manufacturing File (AMF) file.

3. Injection Moulding

  • It is a manufacturing process for producing parts by injecting material into a mould.

  • Can be performed with a host of materials like metals, glass, elastomers, confections, thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers.

4. Lamina Emergent Mechanism

  • A lamina emergent mechanism is a type of compliant mechanism fabricated from flat planar materials (the lamina), with motion created from the fabrication plane.

  • An LEM in its initial stage is flat like a sheet and unfolds to simulate movement by the interaction at the seams which are essentially living hinges fabricated into the material.
