The goal of concurrent engineering is relatively straightforward: decrease product development time with smart, simultaneous engineering between our client's engineers and the Nu-Cast engineering team. In fact, concurrent engineering is often referred to as “simultaneous engineering” or “Integrated Product Development” (IDP). At Nu-Cast, we’ve implemented measures to allow our entire operation to benefit from the impact of concurrent engineering. This gives our customers a faster, more effective apparatus to get the aluminum castings they need. At Nu-Cast, our concurrent engineering practices dictate the process we use for every project.
Review systems and components on the basis of function, design, product ability and cost. Provide specific recommendations, alternate design approaches, and supporting rationale.
Systems and Component Design
Including optical systems, components, enclosures, structural and mounting systems, etc.
Investment Casting Design
Nu-Cast educates your team on the basic principles of investment casting, including how to maximize the benefits of the process.
Tolerances, Dimensions, and More
Our engineers provide for realistic tolerance, dimensional set up (datums / tooling pt's) and proper transitioning to machining (tooling lugs, etc.)
Casting and Machining
Determine those areas / features that should be cast and those that should be machined
Recommend design techniques that minimize distortion due to machining
Our engineers will provide design / detail drawing conversions for castings, weldments, machined parts, and multi-piece assemblies.
Our engineering team will define the advantages and disadvantages of a given material, while recommending the materials that will meet your the mechanical and budgetary requirements
Nu-Cast, Inc. now offers Concurrent Manufacturing, which is much more than concurrent engineering. While virtually any aluminum casting foundry can make castings from drawings, it takes a specific set of capabilities and expertise to manufacture castings without a complete set of drawings or a cad file.
While this is never ideal, many times it is the only way to help our customers achieve their goals.
NCI is an ISO 9001:2015, AS 9100:D registered international aluminum investment casting company.
Nu-Cast is a privately-held company and has been providing aluminum investment castings for commercial / industrial, aerospace and government use since 1986. Our 40,000 sq. ft. building, located at 29 Grenier Field Road, Londonderry, NH, contains offices and manufacturing facilities and equipment to produce a wide range of aluminum-based investment castings. In this facility we also have the ability to work with newer, developmental materials, for both the cast products themselves and the mold and process technologies. Our employees provide engineering, management and production skills, which are supplemented by outside mechanical and structural engineering consultants as dictated by individual project requirements.
