The accuracy of carrier prototyping is critical to the timeliness and acceleration of a production launch. Design Systems, Inc. utilizes your actual product math data to make prototyping a science rather than an art.
- Reduces prototype design cost
- Eliminates the need for multiple prototypes styles
- Eliminates 99% of post build interferences
- Reduces build time and cost
- Reduces design time by using previously successful designs
FEA - Finite Element Analysiswebm converter free download by EasyHtml5Video.com v2.0
Design Systems, Inc. uses some of the most advanced software to accurately create a digital prototype of a design and simulate real world loading conditions before the first piece of steel is ever cut.
- Reduces number of iterations of prototypes
- Reduces engineering time to generate optimal design
- Can be manipulated easier than a prototype
- Cost reduction
FMEA - Failure Modes and Effects Analysis
Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) is a step-by-step approach. Design Systems, Inc. will identify all possible failures in a design, a manufacturing or assembly process, or a product or service.
"Failure modes" means the ways, or modes, in which something might fail. Failures are any errors or defects, especially ones that affect the customer, and can be potential or actual.
"Effects analysis" refers to studying the consequences of those failures. Failures are prioritized according to how serious their consequences are, how frequently they occur and how easily they can be detected. The purpose of the FMEA is to take actions to eliminate or reduce failures, starting with the highest-priority ones. At Design Systems, Inc. we will take a magnifying glass and look at your design, manufacturing or assembly process, or a product or service and give resolution to suit your needs.

3D Model Door Carrier
There are such broad ranges of small parts in any industry. It can vary from a simple tire and wheel carrier to an intricate detailed carrier for an automotive door. This example drawing above was detailed by our Designers and Engineers. We used clamping details to protect the Class "A" surfaces during its transit from one side of the plant to the other in a doors on-doors off process.

In automated processes, it is critical that the carrier supporting your product maintain dimensional integrity to insure that the assembly and manufacturing process is repeatable and sustainable. Through the use of math data and 3D graphics, Design Systems, Inc. provides the engineering to accurately design, engineer, fabricate and build your carrier checking/gauging fixture to maintain production quality and increase uptime.

Handling service and replacement parts are a necessary requirement for any paint shop. The ability to handle these spare parts in the most efficient manner to reduce throughput loss and manual intervention is critical to the efficiency in every paint shop. There are several parameters which come into the design aspect of a part carrier. Phosphate/E-Coat only requirements drive a parts buck with higher quantities to reduce throughput loss. Painted parts may require parts located in part position to maintain quality of the painting process. Design Systems, Inc. specializes in design of these "part bucks" to work throughout the process and conveyor system.
- Carrier Stress Analysis
Carrier Stress Analysis
Carriers are subjected to numerous stresses. The usual practice is to examine the static stress imposed as a carrier moves through a system. Examining carrier stresses for all causes, dynamic and static , is part of Design Systems, Inc. normal practice of carrier design. These stresses are caused by many factors including:
- Impact from loading and unloading parts
- Impacts from carrier stops and starts
- Additional weight from parts being added
- Additional fluids that may be introduced as part of the process
