Hello Folks I am designing a scissor Jack. Theorecticly I need to be taking it as far as mass production. 300 units per annum. I was thinking which means would be the best method of manufacture. I have already got a couple of 3D models going. I know I want to cut down the cost by having less machined parts. I have selected my material allready 2mm thk mild steel. folded or pressed. So does that mean my method of manufacture is extrusion. As the machined rod is bought in. I'm thinking that my components will need to have some machining required. I'm fairly sure that once there is one made it can be produced by machines alone this reducing the cost of wages. Please can you give me some sound advice. Kind regards A Student.
