Reverse Engineered Components
E Tube & Wire works with a local snack food company to keep their antique production machines running. They are the largest manufacturer of pretzels in the world and have upwards of 50 machines just for one size of pretzel. These machines give the food their iconic shape and size. Sometimes new equipment can’t duplicate the hand-worked or imperfect feel of a part or food that is branded as old-fashioned. Additionally, new equipment is typically not available unless it is custom built.
To provide parts and components for machines like this involves reverse engineering anything from complex castings to machined cam shafts. E Tube & Wire has a Faro inspection arm that allows precise measurements and the ability to reverse engineer parts where drawings don’t exist. We will model the part or component in SolidWorks, and then provide the customer with a drawing of that part to have it made.
