Design & Engineering

sheet metal design and engineeringMetal Manufacturing - Design & Engineering

Design and engineering is the first of seven stages within our metal manufacturing process.

With any product, before the production and sheet metal manufacturing commence, an engineering design is developed. Our specialist designers and engineers are dedicated to delivering added value to our client's projects.

Through skilled engineering and design techniques, our team can take a product concept or an idea from a client and turn this into fully specified engineering drawings ready for manufacture.

Adding value for our clients through engineering


Using engineering experience based on decades of metalworking and precision manufacturing, our designers and engineers are creative when producing a design to go into production. Intricate knowledge and experience of our manufacturing processes allows our design and engineering team to fully assess where savings can be made for our clients during the product's manufacture, from laser cutting, metal forming and fabrication through to powder coatingpackaging and assembly.

Our adoption of lean manufacturing techniques through amending designs greatly reduces the time during the manufacturing process of a product - making the most of the sophisticated machinery and equipment, skilled craftsmen and efficient processes available within the JC Metalworks facility. For every brief received, the product will be thoroughly assessed to understand where we can improve quality whilst reducing lead times and costs for our clients.

For JC Metalworks, the manufacturing of a sheet metal product is focused around quality and customer satisfaction. No product starts manufacture until our engineers are certain it meets the specifications required by the client and that all processes have taken place in order to really give our clients the best value possible.

 Our 7-Stage Metal Manufacturing Process:

Once design and engineering has taken place, each product will be scheduled in for each of the manufacturing processes. As every product required is unique, the manufacturing process for that product will also be different.

A product can include Design & Engineering along with any or all of the following sheet metal precision manufacturing services:

  1. Design & Engineering
  2. Laser Cutting or Punching
  3. Metal Forming
  4. Sheet Metal Fabrication
  5. Powder Coating
  6. Assembly
  7. Despatch

Examples of products created using these techniques and services include manufacture of point of sale units and retail fixtures, HVAC systems and electrical enclosures, along with lighting systems.
