Reverse engineering is defined as the production of technical documentation for existing product. It includes disassembly, analysis of the function of the part or assembly, as well as calculations of these components.
What customers are looking for and why you need it?
In most cases, the following is sought:
- Drawings for the entire existing machine or device– drawings, bill of materials, calculations
- Calculations of the parts and components of an existing system– transmission, hydraulic-pneumatic, improvements, etc.
- Detailed analysis of competitor products– drawings, photographs, calculations, control of patent rights, improvements…
Why do you need it?
One of the most common is missing or only partially available technical documentation in paper form. Sometimes there is no any documentation. Sometimes there are problems with the design and reliability.
