Engineering

At Ardel Engineering we use the latest, best in class software to work with and view all of your electronic CAD designs. With customer design changes and improvements happening faster than ever we felt it was important to be able to email designs and ideas for the quickest implementation. Manufacturing is becoming paperless; having all the viewers necessary to view any print documentation shortens the quoting time, improves the print quality and is easier for the buyer.

GibbsCAM is the software we use for creating the cutter paths for our CNC Mills, Swiss Screw machines and CNC Lathes. This intuitive tool allows us program your parts off an electronic solid model created in any of the design software currently available. Building cutter paths from solid models not only saves time but, is more accurate. This tool also allows us to vary the tooling, speeds and feeds to optimize production before we actually start machining.

M1 by ECi is our MRP software that we use to control our business operations. This powerful software not only controls our inventory and shipping it is also the way we maintain lot/documentation control required by our ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485. When a valued job is received the job router is completed and verified for all necessary Print, Purchase Order and customer requirements. Then the job is scheduled in M1 to ensure on time delivery and job tracking. Once this has been completed the material is ordered through the purchasing module to the job.  When received, the material certification is verified and electronically attached to the job per our ISO standards. Parts are produced per the routing and instructions. Any sub contract operations are then completed. The final inspection operation is signed off and the parts move to inventory awaiting the required ship date. After the job is shipped complete and closed all documentation is scanned and stored electronically in M1 for future reference.
