From Designs to the Shop Floor - How Solidworks Transforms Manufacturing at Boro Park Manufacturing and Sheet Metal Fabrication


At Boro Park Manufacturing, we understand that precision, efficiency, and clear communication are cornerstones of successful fabrication projects.  

That's why we've integrated Solidworks, a powerful 3D CAD (Computer-Aided Design) software suite, into every stage of our operations – and the results speak for themselves.

The Power of 3D Models

Visualizing the Vision - Solidworks allows us to create detailed 3D models, not just flat drawings. This ensures everyone involved, from designers and engineers to our skilled shop floor teams, has the same crystal-clear understanding of the final product.

Problem-Solving Before Production - 3D modeling enables us to identify and address potential issues, such as part interference or assembly challenges, early on. This means fewer costly surprises and rework once fabrication begins.

Collaboration Made Easy - Solidworks models become a central hub of information. Design changes, engineering notes, and any part revisions are instantly shareable and accessible to the whole team, minimizing errors and miscommunication.

Translating Designs to Efficient Fabrication

Streamlining CAM (not doing this yet) - Solidworks seamlessly integrates with CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) software.  3D models directly generate tool paths for CNC machining, laser cutting, and other processes, minimizing manual programming and potential errors.

Material Optimization - Intelligent nesting features within Solidworks allow us to maximize sheet metal utilization, reduce waste, and cut material costs. This efficiency translates directly into more competitive quotes for our clients.

Jigs and Fixtures Simplified - Solidworks lets us design and fabricate custom jigs and fixtures precisely tailored to our project needs.  This improves production speed, ensures repeatability, and delivers our clients' expected quality.

Quality Control Starts in the Design

Tolerance Analysis - Solidworks helps us evaluate how part tolerances stack up in the assembly.  We can catch fitment issues digitally, ensuring real-world parts come together seamlessly, minimizing delays for rework or adjustments.

Clear Documentation - From detailed assembly instructions to visual bill of materials (BOMs), Solidworks allows us to generate clear guides that keep the shop floor running smoothly and eliminate guesswork.

The Boro Park Difference: Solidworks in Action

At Boro Park, we don't just use Solidworks as a design tool; we leverage it as a powerful communication and problem-solving platform across our entire process. 

This translates into tangible benefits for our clients:

Reduced Lead Times - Optimized tool paths and streamlined production planning mean your projects get completed and delivered faster.

Cost-Effectiveness - Reduced waste and the ability to identify the most efficient processes keep your project costs under control.

Uncompromising Quality: We meet even the most demanding quality standards with fewer surprises and errors on the shop floor.
