Clearly, most Lean and 6-Sigma programs can provide near term gains in productivity at a relatively low cost. However, when designing and developing new products at Least Total Cost, it is imperitive to have a solid grasp on DFMA (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly) and DFRQ (Design for Reliability and Quality) methodologies.
An even more powerful combination is formed, however, by combining a these techniques with fundamental manufacturing process technology. In this regard, KoMotion Technologies prides itself on its in-depth knowledge of manufacturing process technology, including: conventional machining (grinding, milling, turning, drilling, tapping, reaming, etc.), non-conventional machining (EDM, ECM, ECG, micro-machining, etc.), material forming (forging, casting, extrusion, stamping, injection modling), composite filament winding and tape laying, ceramic materials processing and finishing, factory automation, inspection technology, and the very latest in Additive Manufacturing technologies.
Beyond this, KoMotion Technologies has a comprehensive understanding of ferrous and non-ferrous materials science including aerospace superalloys, composites, and ceramic materials.
