“for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you” Proverbs 2:10-11
WHAT IS REVERSE ENGINEERING
Engineering is the profession involved in the design, manufacture, construction and
products, systems or structures. Of which there are two types of engineering: forward
Engineering is the traditional process of moving from high level abstraction and
logical designs of implementations to a physical system or part. Though in some situations
there may be a physical part, but without any technical details, drawings, assembly
details, material lists and engineering data.
The process of duplicating an existing component, product or subassembly without
the aid of drawing or documentation is known as reverse engineering.
Reverse engineering can be considered as the process of analysing to:
Identify system components and their integral relationship
Create representations of the system, or part in another form.
Create the physical representation of the system or part.
Reasons for reverse engineering a part or products
The original manufacturer of the product no longer produces it
There is inadequate documentation of the original design
The original manufacturer no longer exists, but the part is still required
The original design document never existed or was lost
Some bad features of the part should be designed out. For example, excessive wear
can indicate if a product should be improved
To strengthen the good characteristics of a part based on the usage
To explore avenues to improve the products performance, functionality and durability.
To acquire list of spare parts required for maintenance, that the original supplier
may not offer.
To update obsolete materials or antiquated manufacturing processes with more up to
date and less expensive methods of part manufacturing.
Reverse engineering allows the duplication of an existing part in capturing the physical
dimensions of the component, the characteristics and properties of materials.
Our designers are skilled in creating 3D models, manufacturing drawings and generating
manufacturing data from any given physical products / components or assemblies
