Project design usually involves creating components from scratch. This may require creating CAD drawings or sketches that detail the component’s shape, size, and other design characteristics. The design must also consider the type of material used, the manufacturing process, and the desired result. Once the component is designed, machining and metalworking processes may be used to shape and form the component.
Assembly is largely focused on accuracy, as components must fit together precisely in order to function correctly and efficiently. This process can involve a variety of techniques, such as soldering, riveting, welding, and bolting. Additionally, the use of adhesives, gaskets, and other sealants may be necessary to ensure proper sealing and insulation.
