Challenge Description

What is design for manufacturing and why is it important? Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is the process of designing components for ease of manufacturing high-quality products at a lower cost. This is done by lowering complexity, optimizing performance, and redefining the product.

Here is the challenge:

A part has been redesigned and an assembly fixture needs to be updated.  The purpose of the fixture is to press down a gasket that is bonded to the assembly.  The gasket is a unique shape and machining will be to expensive so an additive solution is the best option.

The current design of the fixture has two pressing heads, both will need to be replaced.  See attached drawing for the gasket profile and all keep out zones.
