ODonnell Consulting

Manufacturing Consulting

Manufacturing Consulting - OCEProviding manufacturing consulting services including product design and development, machinery, safety & OSHA, and production line issues. We have helped numerous clients solve complex problems allowing them to increase production performance, and become more cost-efficient.

Projects include:

  • Analysis and repair of a hydraulic press
  • Engineering analysis to improve the design life of a forging that did not meet specification
  • Prototype design & development
  • Engineering analysis of quartz tubes in a purification system
  • Design of a procedure to weld a complex geometry steel structure
  • Design optimization of Formula One brake rotors
  • Investigation and redesign of a press to extend its structural design life
  • Engineering investigations of machinery safety issues

We were asked to redesign the weld configuration, heat treatment, and inspection process on a heater subsequently improving the manufacturing process.
