Engineering Services

GTC has decades of experience in design support and manufacturing analysis. We invite customers to bring us their problems and tell us their requirements. Our team of manufacturing engineers is knowledgeable, innovative and technically competent. We’re experienced in computer modeling, engineering analysis, product design support, and advanced manufacturing techniques.

Their engineering recommendations complement our customers’ CAD/CAM platforms such as SolidWorks, Siemens NX (Unigraphics), AutoCAD Inventor and SurfCam. When necessary, neutral file formats (IGES, STEP, ACIS and others) can be used judiciously to translate or reformat data. We deploy the latest data security measures and encryption techniques on a secure network to minimize the risk of data exposure.

CAD/CAM

GTC has the best computer software and hardware systems for our staff of experienced programmers to transform a digital design into a physical part. Our team is skilled at creating the right tool paths for parts that need heavy roughing cuts for stock removal or very light finishing passes to minimize heat and distortion while holding tight dimensions and special surface conditions.

Simulation of machining processes verifies the expected results. Program edits and critical offsets established at the CNC machine are captured and shared with the programming department to keep the master program up to date and improve future programming.

Programs for computer-controlled measuring machines are also expertly prepared, and inspection results are fed back to the system for analysis and refinement of machining techniques. We use Siemens NX (Unigraphics), SolidWorks, ICAM, PC-DMIS, Origin Checkmate and Renishaw Productivity Plus, to name a few of the software tools at our command.
