Product Design & Engineering

From the earliest iterations of your sheet metal fabrication project, Southern’s product engineering team is here to partner with you to cost-effectively develop the optimal solution. Utilize our engineers to collaborate with you on design ideas, create 3-D models, develop prototypes, generate drawings and prepare your custom metal project for production. From an initial idea to finished design, the Southern team can help at any part of your product’s journey to market.

Value Engineering and Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DFMA)

Before any metal forming or laser cutting begins, Southern Specialties can work with you to make design changes or fine-tune the existing designs to positively impact your bottom line. We can work to ensure designs are efficient to produce and economical to manufacture – providing lower overall cost, speedier manufacturing time and quicker delivery to market.
