Advantage Engineering Limited (AEL) specialise in the design of bespoke stainless steel fabrication with over 50 years combined experience. AEL have a highly experienced in-house design team with the capabilities to provide customers with advanced design solutions. The AEL design team engage directly with customers to discuss, understand and prototype potential solutions according to the customers’ requirements.

This is an iterative design process using Design for Manufacture (DFM) & Design for Assembly (DFA) methodologies.

Design for Assembly (DFM)

Design for Assembly (DFM) is defined as the integration of product design and process design into one activity.

It is know that 70% of the manufacturing costs are determined by the design.

AEL follow the following Guidelines for DFA:

  • Minimise total no. of parts
  • Develop a modular design
  • Use standard parts
  • Design parts to be multi-functional
  • Design parts to be multi-use
  • Design parts for ease of fabrication
  • Avoid separate fasteners
  • Minimise assembly directions
  • Maximise compliance
  • Minimise handling

Design for Assembly (DFA)

AEL can offer a cost effective assembly design solutions to its clients

Assembly can be up to 50% of the manufacturing cost.

Solution – Make assembly as easy as possible:

  • Improve process
  • Improve design

AEL’s engineering & design team can guide you through the design process from initial concept to full completion of your product


AEL engineering & design team use a range of Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software to aid in the design process to ensure the appropriate design decisions are made in a timely fashion.

AEL used the following software:


SOLIDWORKS®is a comprehensive 3D design solution for rapid creation of parts, assemblies, and 2D drawings. This software allows our experienced team to run powerful simulation and 3D design validations before production.

SOLIDWORKS®drastically reduces the cost and number of physical prototypes required.


Radan software is acknowledged as one of the world’s leading PC based CAD CAM software solutions for the sheet metal cutting industry. It offers a unique combination of applications for punching, bending, design and production management for sheet metal fabrication.
