Production-ready CAD data optimized for cost, functionality, and manufacturability.

Design engineering is the stage of new product development where your ideas are taken from plausible to possible by transforming concepts into successful working products. At Empire Group, we go beyond just the functional success. We apply our unique knowledge and expertise in product manufacturing, tooling, materials, and production processes. Our goal is to deliver production-ready CAD data that is optimized for cost and designed for manufacturability (DFM).

Our design engineers work collaboratively with our industrial designers in a balanced approach to solve the technical challenges of your product vision without sacrificing aesthetics and user experience. Together, we address and correct potential problems with materials, dimensional tolerances, regulatory compliance, and secondary processing considerations early in the product development lifecycle. We do this to help you avoid costly down-stream mistakes – while also staying true to your initial design intent.

Our Design Engineers Specialize In:

Design for Manufacturing

+ Design for Manufacturing (DFM)

Design for Manufacturing is the process of designing parts, components or products for ease of manufacturing and assembly with an end goal of making a better product at a lower cost.

Design for Additive Manufacturing

+ Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM)

Design for AM is DFM as applied to Additive Manufacturing, where design is no longer constrained by the limitations of traditional production, such as complexity, scale, and assembly requirements
