We have access to the latest industry-standard software for product development and process simulation.

Our skilled team of engineers and experienced technicians are here to assist you, ensuring that components are fully optimised for our manufacturing processes. Both Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Machining (CAM) play an important part in all aspects of modern production, enabling the generation of production drawings and 3D printed models through to forging dies, jigs and fixtures.

Within the Brooks Engineering Group, we have access to a wide range of industry-leading software provided by Solidworks, Creo, QForm, and Transvalor.  This enables us to produce drawings in DXF, DWG, and PDF format, 3D model files in STEP or IGS, and perform forging simulation.

drawing production in forging

Drawing Production

Working from product samples or existing drawings, we use Solidworks® software to produce up-to-date drawings in the early stages of project development.

This benefits our customers because we can continuously refine designs, developing the product design to achieve their exact requirements.

Drawings can be supplied for approval in a wide range of digital formats including PDF, DXF, and DWG.

forging tooling design and production

Machining & Tooling

Following drawing approval, component drawings and digital models can easily be transferred to the next stage of production.

This includes the on-site manufacture of forging dies and programming of CNC machines for final component finishing if required. All machine cutting paths can be previewed and checked prior to the process. Forging simulation can accurately verify die design before any die blocks are cut.

The process is also used to design and produce special testing jigs, go and no-go gauges, and fixtures that improve and streamline our automated manufacturing processes.

3d printing in metal forging

3D Printing

We have the ability to produce accurate physical models by using the latest 3D printing technology.

This service is valuable in the mid-stages of product development as it enables our customers to hold a physical representation of the forged blank or finished component before any tooling is produced.  This model can be used to confirm dimensional suitability or test fitted in the final application to identify any overlooked design issues.

Tooling and forging dies are expensive and identifying issues in the early stages of development saves time, resources, and budget.

shackle stress analysis software

Stress Analysis

We have software that can perform Stress Analysis tests from rendered 3D models, using both static and assembled components.

This enables us to evaluate product structure and design suitability and make alterations to suit various requirements. We can also input various material properties making the system fully customisable.
