The success of any production program depends on the quality of the tooling. Our engineering expertise and versatility allow us to successfully transform extremely complex tasks into reality.
Ducommun’s engineering team employs a modern CAD/CAM system that includes an NCL work station, a Gerber Autograph controlled by an HP 1000 computer and two HP plotters with Kennedy 9000 magnetic tape drive for mechanical design and drafting tasks. This system uses IGES (International Graphics Exchange Specification) and has APT (Automated Program Tools) capability. Loft data, contour data, spline and mesh surfaces, or ABC Data Points of XYZ, IJK points are expeditiously converted to graphics.
