Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering or back engineering is widely used in the fields of manufacturing and engineering. When a product is being designed from scratch, an engineer draws up a design specification from which a design is constructed. With reverse engineering, the engineer works through the final product in the reverse direction to extract product design specification. Due to the advancement of technology on a continual basis, many existing products have become irrelevant; however, numerous parts used to create these products have stood the test of time. Reverse engineering helps replace just the malfunctioned part, not the entire device.

Reverse engineering is a deconstructing process to reconstruct an existing product. This process helps a business determine what materials the manufactured product is made from and understanding the production technique can help you improve the production processes. Reverse engineering plays a crucial role when the original specification drawings and material information are not available. Reverse engineering is time and cost effective as in a highly competitive global market, a 3D model can be captured in digital form and recreated as and when necessary. This helps manufacturers to shorten lead times to bring their new products to market.

Why is reverse engineering important?

  • To purchase a replacement part when original equipment manufacturer is not available.
  • To gain knowledge of the original design and to regain lost designs.
  • To enhance product effectiveness and protect patents.
  • To reduce research and development expenses.
  • To help with material selection and future production techniques.
  • To analyze competitor products.
  • To create digital version of product blueprints for easier access.
  • Services provided

    Our well-qualified and certified team of technicians is trained to determine the production techniques used in the manufacture of products and to identify the materials used in metal components and equipment with the help of analytical techniques including:

  • Microscopy
  • Scanning electron microscopy
  • Chemical analysis
  • Dimensional measurements
  • 3D Metrology
  • Impact, tensile and hardness testing
  • Our services can be catered to not just manufacturing industries but also to automotive, consumer products, chemicals, microchips, electronics, etc. We conduct lifecycle analysis and cost-benefit analysis before attempting reverse engineering and gather precise information on a product’s dimensions to store the data in digital archives. With the help of our engineers, the design can be enhanced or replicated.
