Our Design / Engineering Capabilities
Few companies in our industry have a dedicated engineering function. Even fewer have a degreed metallurgist on staff. The engineering resources at Seward Screw are available to all of our customers and potential customers.
The value of our engineering assistance is most evident when we get to work on new part designs, with as much knowledge of the end-use/application as possible. We can make material, manufacturing process, and tolerance recommendations that result in high quality, cost-effective products. We can choose from a wide variety of processes or even recommend processes outside our manufacturing scope. If we are unable to quote a design, we try to explain why, and sometimes can offer suggestions to the designs that would enable us to quote.
Our engineers provide technical support to all aspects of our manufacturing processes. We also collaborate with material suppliers, tooling sources, machine builders, sub-contractors and any other resources in the industry to assist us in providing value to our customers. We are accustomed to supplying ready-to-use parts, so our approach to part evaluations is to make the part as completely as possible with the fewest operations, and to supply a finished part for the customer to use without additional processing.
