Costimator Cost Estimating Software Blog

Costimator, cost estimating software, used worldwide by suppliers and OEMs.

Cost estimating sheet metal fabrication and fabricated parts and products generally consists of a few basic manufacturing processes namely, cutting a blank to size, brake forming, welding, grinding, deburring and finishing (whether it be chemical coating or painting.)

Templates, by design, save users enormous time in not having to re-produce a routing every time a similar welding or fabricated quote is required.

Welding templates for fabricated parts can be sorted into many different categories, allowing for a quick and easy retrieval. By also using a the unique “Drag & Drop” estimators can quickly input or move work-center details into new estimates – saving again time but also reducing data entry errors.

“Drag & Drop” is unique to Costimator. Check out what some of our customers say. Visit our testimonial section.

“The drag and drop feature, inside Costimator, saves us time while helping us reduce data entry errors. We can instantly copy or move any operations or details between or within estimates. Using the new “tab interface” feature, it allows us to drag estimates, quotes, and graphs into multiple frames. This saves us both preparation and review time on our fabricated parts and provides a convenient way to analyze the information.” -Gene Thompson, Estimator,  Dynamic Metals, LLC

“Their drag and drop feature really speeds up our ability to estimate and quote faster by moving or copying details between estimates. MTI Systems is also a great company to work with and provides me with excellent customer service and technical support. I recommend their software for those who work with fabricated parts at any fabricating company. “- Doug Marquess, Process Engineer, RBC Bearings, ITB Division

So when you are creating templates for fabricated parts, if your process of cutting sheet metal is laser, then you may have a “Laser, Form, Weld, Finish” cost estimating template. If your company works with sheet-metal and you fabricating processes include using turret punch presses, then a template for turret punch presses might look like: “Punch, Form, Weld, Finish.”

At the end of the day, when your cost team uses master routing templates inside the Costimator cost estimating software, you are not only establishing a standard method of sheet metal fabrication, but the team is also incorporating consistency and speed into the results of their estimating method.

Why re-invent the wheel when MTI Systems offers a fast and easy-to-learn cost estimating software for manufacturing companies who make fabricated parts. See for yourself through a free demonstration. Give us a call at 800-644-4318 or browse through our web site: www.mtisystems.com.

  • Metal phony fusing or melting is modernized routine in machining attention as well as has a own features. Making latest appurtenance is not a complaint since tall end phony collection have been used. CNC machines have been in a list of a latest phony processes. CNC machines have been modernized as well as have a genius to broach tall end outlay in reduction time. Its modernized programming has since climb to latest avenues in a engineering field. Power outlay as well as opening of a CNC appurtenance all depends upon a sort of origination as well as module installed. There have been opposite mandate for which a CNC appurtenance is used. CNC machines have been tall precised inclination which have been combined to help in prolongation processes. Cutting, shading, smoothening as well as alternative modifications jobs have been all achieved by CNC machines.

  • Sheet metal is simply metal formed into thin and flat pieces. It is one of the fundamental forms used in metalworking, and can be cut and bent into a variety of different shapes. Countless everyday objects are constructed of the material. Thicknesses can vary significantly, although extremely thin thicknesses are considered foil or leaf, and pieces thicker than 6 mm (0.25 in) are considered plate.
