Review of Design for Manufacturing and Assembly Aspects to Designing Modern Micro-Wave and Sheet Metal Products
In this paper, we present different points of view to make the sheet metal and micro-wave product as manufacturing friendly as possible. Within DFM(A)-research (Design for Manufacturing and Assembly), engineering design and manufacturability of Micro-Wave (MW) and sheet metal products has been studied. Other aspects of DFM(A) have risen from novel material applications and the development of CAD (Computer Aided Design) environments. In this paper, practical examples are presented to show how to apply DFMA-rules to MW- and sheet metal components, in particular, and how to develop DFM(A)-rules for these purposes.
