IDEMI. specializes in jig grinding and boring to insure the most precise tools, dies and fixtures. Our expert die makers can quickly produce extremely durable tools that produce accurate, repeatable, and high quality components that add value to your manufacturing processes.
Jigs and fixtures are Designed such that they are employed to produce interchangeable and identical components. They are unique tool-guiding and work-holding devices designed specifically for machining and assembling large number of parts. Listed the following as the purposes of jigs and fixtures reduction of production cost, increase of production rate, high accuracy of products without any manufacturing defects, provision of interchange ability, easy machining of complex shaped parts, reduction of quality control costs, etc.
Jigs and fixtures eliminate the need for a special set up for every work-piece thereby facilitating production and also ensuring that every work piece is manufactured within a predetermined tolerance.
The major difference between a jig and a fixture is that jigs guide the cutting tool to its precise position, as well as locating and supporting the work-piece during operations.
The essential features of jigs and features include:
- Clamps position
- Neatness of work-piece
- Idle time reduction
- Set up time reduction
- Hardened surfaces
The application of jigs and fixtures in manufacturing operations lead to the production of faster, more accurate, and reliable products at a reduced cost.
Design for Manufacturability
IDEMI focuses on design for manufacturability. Design for manufacturability, sometimes known as design for manufacturing, is the process of proactively designing and engineering products to optimize all the manufacturing functions – plastic injection Molding, assembly, testing, procurement, packaging, shipping – and ensure the best cost, quality, reliability, regulatory compliance, safety, time-to-market and customer satisfaction.
Early consideration of manufacturing – design for manufacturability – shortens product development time, minimizes development and part costs, reduces rework, and ensures a smooth transition into production for quicker time to market.
Cost reduction is a key benefit of design for manufacturability. Parts are designed for optimal manufacture and assembly, with consideration to fewer components requiring assembly, effective mold design, materials, automation and plastic injection molding process for fast and efficient Molding and consistent quality.
In addition to cost savings (both manufacturing and development costs), design for manufacturability also results in improved quality and consistency in manufacturing and faster development time and time to market.
80% of a Part’s Cost is determined by the Design
In addition to determining 80% of a plastic injection moulded part’s cost, the design impacts quality, reliability, functionality, serviceability and manufacturability. It effects how quickly a new product can be introduced and is a key driver of competitive advantage. That is why IDEMI invests so much in the design focusing on design for use, design for manufacturability and design for competitive advantage. Our success is determined by our ability to maximize your success and we know the design and engineering process is critical to achieving that success!For engineering out cost and engineering in quality and optimal performance

As a specialist company in a industry, staying ahead of the competition has always been of paramount importance when it comes to offering our customers the very latest technology in tool design. With this in mind we took the decisions to specialise in a 3D modelling environment.
3D modelling is a more cost effective way of designing for the toolmakerastime saving process. Once the designs have been completed in a solid model format, the information is then imported into the machining software. This also helps us to minimise the risk of occurring errors due to factors such as misinterpretation of 2D designs into a 3D machining surface data environment.
Due to the depth of experience in Designs, nearly all sectors of press tool and jig and fixture design can be undertaken.
- Process Design
- Blank Development
- Strip Layout design
- Method Plan Design
- Tool Design
- Transfer Dies.
- Progressive Dies.
- Compound Dies
Our engineers take precision to a whole new level by focusing on computer aided Design to produce fast & Précised tooling.CAD Design to ensure accuracy for your component’s design, tool design, and manufacture and Our highly experienced Designers use a Design for Die Casting methodology that optimizes casting manufacturability while preserving functionality.
Design for Manufacturing (DFM) is one of the best practices our engineers follow to ensure your part does not require expensive secondary operations which can often represent as much as 80% of the component cost. Our engineers use a DFM methodology that optimizes casting and moulding manufacturability while preserving functionality.
From concept, making sure the correct improvements are in place to make a quality component is essential. By using machining, surface coating, reducing heavy masses, and more, the component can be as complete as possible on the first cast. Our engineers can help you decide on the best fasteners to join your components.

Reverse engineering in manufacturing and engineering is used to find out how equipment or products are made and work.
Reverse engineering in manufacturing and engineering is used for a wide variety of reasons. By taking apart engineering equipment or a manufactured product and discovering the materials it is made from and how it works, we can help a business determine and improve production processes, enhance product effectiveness, and protect patents.
The process is also used to discover how a ‘legacy’ (i.e very old) component or product operates and is necessary when the original technical drawings and material information are no longer available or the original manufacturer is no longer in business. Reverse engineering requires multidisciplinary expertise and experience when reconstructing an item.
With years of experience in industry using a suite of analytical techniques, IDEMI’s team of well-qualified technicians can determine how metal components, products or equipment have been manufactured and from what alloy. From determining the production techniques that were used in the manufacture and identification of the materials to discovering the heat treatment process and establishing the working operation, our services will seek to answer the multitude of questions you have so that you have a better understanding of the item. Our range of analytical techniques includes:
- Dimensional measurements
- CMM Inspection
- Impact, tensile and hardness testing
To develop a product successfully, smooth integration between design and engineering is essential.
Our designers & engineers work together and have overlapping sensibilities, allowing for better integration between both facultiesand capabilities across a wide range of platforms, materials & processes,making it possible to deliver a product in the totality of its design.
- Engineering Concept Development
- Electro-mechanical assemblies
- Value Engineering
- 3 D CAD
- 2D Drawings
- Material Properties
- Design Feasibility
