Computer Aided Design

FACE Engineering offers design and data management services to industry utilizing Siemens NX (Formerly Unigraphics NX) Designer Mach Bundles coupled with Teamcenter integration for data, change and bill of material management. This ensures integrity of data and ease of management for clients / projects by allowing the latest data to be consolidated and available in real time.

For a comprehensive list of FACE Engineering’s design capabilities please see our Capabilities and Software Utilization page.

Services can be tailored to suite your organizations individual requirements and needs. Services range from design only all the way through to turn key design and build solutions. A project can consist of a single part or extend to an assembly with several thousand components. Assemblies are invariably a combination of moulded and formed components, machined components, sheet metal products, extrusions and castings.

Services that FACE Engineering commonly provide in conjunction with a client supplied scopes of works include:

1.Component / assembly design and generation with files exported out of the FACE Engineering system in neutral format. This information is usually imported into another CAD system and manufacturing / drafting information is generated by the client themselves.

2.Component / assembly design and generation, generation of drafting information and additional file generation for downstream manufacturing applications as per the list in our Capabilities and Software Utilization page. In this scenario the design information resides within the FACE Teamcenter site.

Drafting information is presented in PDF format, drafting and downstream manufacturing information is exported out of the FACE Teamcenter site as required.

The client invariably manages the manufacturing process themselves utilizing the supplied information.

3.Component / assembly design and generation, generation of drafting information and additional file generation for downstream manufacturing applications as per the list in our Capabilities and Software Utilization page. In this scenario the design information resides within the FACE Teamcenter site.

Drafting information is presented in PDF format, drafting and downstream manufacturing information is exported out of the FACE Teamcenter site as required.

FACE Engineering then manages downstream manufacturing processes for the client delivering parts and assemblies as required. In this instance most of these parts and assemblies are integrated into products for the client’s greater business.

4. Design and build services. FACE Engineering provide end to end design and manufacturing solutions providing turnkey products.

5. James Sutherland also provides onsite consulting and design services.

Through the FACE Engineering Teamacenter site were able to offer various permission based data access solutions allowing clients the ability to retrieve and review there data as required.

FACE Engineering is also very experienced in reverse engineering, repair and overhaul and prototype work.

With the aid of our tool room and an extensive array of measuring equipment and fixtures were able to easily reverse engineer components and assemblies. Parts and assemblies are systematically modelled and recreated in Siemens NX, drafting views are then generated with annotation attached to aid re-manufacture of the existing components.

In some instances especially with freeform or odd shapes it’s simpler to use probe or scan data. Were able to import point, point cloud and STL data. This data is used to build surfaces resulting in solid bodies that can be used for part re-manufacture.
