Over more than two decades, Cyient has established an excellent track record of designing and optimizing parts for a wide variety of products that range from toothbrushes to complex aircraft engines.
Precise, Efficient and Manufacturable Design Solutions
Our large team of mechanical engineers hails from top engineering schools, combined with rich industry and manufacturing experience. We provide advanced engineering solutions for designing subassemblies and large assemblies with a strong focus on rigorous engineering. With complete design engineering capabilities from product and process design through initial production, we deliver cost-effective and manufacturable solutions. Our domain experts employ design-to-cost methodologies, adhering to pertinent industry standards and the six sigma framework, thus delivering efficient designs.
We have strong expertise in generating detailed mechanical drawings, interface and source control drawings, process specifications, and configuration management to control the documents. Rapid prototyping methods are used when warranted to aid the design process. Computer-aided manufacturing is employed through the direct transfer of the design models to improve the manufacturing process and reduce the drawing requirements.
Our structural design engineers are experienced in developing structurally strong designs with optimum weight and cost. Particular areas of specialty include carbon fiber reinduced plastic (CFRP), sheet metal, fabrications and welding. Our engineers have strong capabilities in most of the mechanical disciplines such as pneumatics, hydraulics, mechanisms, HVAC, materials mechanics, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics. In addition, our mechanical engineers have a strong understanding of related subjects such as advanced mathematics and chemistry, enabling them to engineer robust products.
The Cyient Advantage
- Our engineers hail from top engineering schools and come with rich manufacturing experience.
- Our designs have yielded superior products with reduced cost and optimized weight.
- Expertise across pneumatics, hydraulics, mechanisms, HVAC, materials mechanics, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
- Extensive conceptual and detail engineering expertise across industries to convert ideas to products.
- Assured manufacturability and improved speed to market through effective engineering analysis and optimization.
We provide high-quality concept and design solutions to maximize the product's overall effectiveness. Our designers combine the insights and information gathered throughout the brainstorming and research phase, transforming these inputs into technical sketches. The sketches illustrate and explain the internal working mechanism of the product and how different elements and user interface components fit together. The team then carefully defines the scenarios for each major interaction we believe end users will or should have with the product.
Cyient employs all the latest computer-aided design and engineering tools to develop products, realizing innovative design solutions early in the product development phase, and optimizing the design process.
We are abreast of and adept with the latest CAD tools such as Unigraphics, Catia, ProE, and AutoCad, permitting us to offer comprehensive CAD design solutions. We have established processes to rapidly get up to speed on customers’ in-house design platforms, ensuring that we speak the customer's design language. Geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T) is utilized when necessary to improve communication between customers and suppliers and to drive consistency through the design, manufacturing and inspection processes. Our mechanical engineering team typically employs tolerance stack-up (TSU) to analyze the cumulative effect of part tolerances to prove designs and reduce product costs. Production drawings are generated per ISO, DIN, BIS, ASME, ANSI, JIS and client-specific standards.
Our clients have benefited from our extensive detail engineering capabilities that include conversion of 2D legacy prints into 3D parametric models, CAD data translation, parametric 2D drawings suited to customer preferences and standards, and using 3D models to drive necessary drawing changes.
Engineering Analysis and Optimization
Our clients use our proven expertise in advanced engineering analysis to address the most intricate engineering challenges. We use the latest tools and methodologies to optimize product design in terms of cost and weight reduction, life prediction, system performance evaluation and failure investigation.
Through FEA we determine and address critical design issues, such as fatigue life, strength, and material selection. Utilizing virtual techniques such as 3D simulations of robotic and human operations, we test preproduction models to assure "manufacturability". We have delivered productivity gains and improved bottom line to our clients.
Our mechanical engineers are trained and experienced to identify inefficiencies in current designs in the initial phases of product development and to continuously validate designs throughout the product development life cycle by use of applicable analysis techniques. For instance, structural and thermal aspects of the design are evaluated by transporting the 3D geometry directly to NASTRAN and SINDA/TRASYS, thereby gaining valuable engineering feedback early in the design phase.
