Product engineering capability is a core component of Maynard's "Full Service" business model. Maynard Engineering has the required CAD tools to handle 3-D solid modeling of products and related solidification modeling of components, which is critical for the efficient production of high-quality castings.
Strong modeling is done with Solidworks and Pro-Engineer, and solidification simulations are done with Magma-soft. PDF, HTML, GIF, TIFF, JPEG, DWG, DXF, and BMP file formats can be sent to us via high-speed internet transfer, e-mail, or CD-ROM mail. If the customer requires assistance with his Finite Element Analysis, FEAs are outsourced to outside engineers.
At Maynard, these methods are often used for value analysis to help customers convert from costly fabrications or component assemblies to cast items. Our engineering strategy not only saves money for the consumer, but it also saves weight, simplifies production, and improves reliability.
The Maynard Pattern Shop is used to keep foundry tooling in good working order as well as make engineering adjustments and repairs. The majority of modern tooling is designed to Maynard's specifications by outside Pattern Shops.
The use of Styrofoam designs in the casting process is one of Maynard's capabilities. Styrofoam tooling is a cost-effective option for one-of-a-kind applications. Maynard works with Styrofoam designs that customers send or that he can get from licensed outside vendors.
