CAD Capabilities

Electroimpact's CAD capabilities include CATIA V5 (160 seats), CATIA V4 for legacy projects, Solidworks (117 seats), and Unigraphics (15 seats). We have an especially long history and extensive experience with both CATIA V5 and Solidworks. We also have integrated ANSYS, and COSMOS FEA packages for static and dynamic analysis, and simulation tools such as COSMOS Motion and DELMIA for analysis and factory simulation. Our CAD tools are further enhanced by add-in packages for gear creation, rendering, cad interoperability and other functionality.

CAM

We have the capabilityes to import and program from almost any 2D and 3D format including .dwg, .dxf, .sldprt, .SAT, .x_t, .STEP, CATIA and UG files. We use Mastercam exclusively.

Paperless Documentation

Electroimpact's document control systems are paperless. We utilize an integrated PLM system for coordinated design, production control, and inspection. Engineers are networked to share design data and submit drawings to the shop electronically.

CNC Machining Capabilities

To achieve the repeatability, accuracy, and efficiency needed to compete in the aerospace tooling industry, Electroimpact has CNC milling and turning capacities. Our CNC milling envelope is 36"x40"x100". Jobs are tracked via the network supported IMPACT database. Engineering workstations are connected to the SmartCam programming stations. The SmartCam stations are in turn connected by DNC link to the CNC machines.

High Bay Assembly Facilities

Electroimpact custom built a 36,000 square foot building close to its current headquarters in 1997. At 52 ft. high, the High Bay Assembly Facility (HBAF) has two 60 ft. x 300 ft. machine assembly areas, each with a 5 foot thick slab section for final machine approval testing. The building has four 25 ton cranes, each with a hook height of 37 feet. On one side of the building there is a three story office and conference center.

In 2008 due to continued growth we added another custom built highbay Building A that included 37,500 sq. ft. of engineering office space as well as 15,000 sq. ft. of highbay assembly buy off space. The highbay space has 2-32 metric ton cranes with 41 ft. hook height.

With the ever increasing number of projects more space was needed and construction was started in April 2012 on a new highbay, Building B. The new building adds another 36,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing and buyoff space. Bulding B is equipped with two 40 metric ton cranes that span the entire width of the building. In 2014 we added Building F with 29,700 sq. ft. of assembly area. By the end of 2016 Building H will be complete adding an additional 16,974 sq. ft. of assembly space and 24,526 sq. ft. of office space.
