Monarch coordinates work through its manufacturing channels providing the best part and process pairing possible. After work is completed, Monarch can provide 3rd party Inspection and Verification reports if requested. What that means is that we don’t send a 5 axis machined part to a sheet metal shop that may send it back out with a mark-up, or a very simple part to an aerospace firm.
To get started, a customer uploads a file or sufficient information to begin a design. Monarch offers front end design assistance unlike other Integrated Suppliers, so we can actually start your project with only an idea. Monarch will provide clients with an estimate and delivery per your specifications, and then start production after a PO or signed Purchasing Agreement is in place.
By using a sourcing method, we can utilize firms with the best equipment and capability for your project. By doing this, individual part prices decrease and quality increases reducing scrap and rework. We vet and audit our network to make sure they are the best in the area that represents your projects.
Because Monarch is not a startup, we have extensive knowledge about what makes a Manufacturing facility work. We designed an Audit inspection around those items to make sure we partner with only the best in each skill set. Some parts need to have ISO quality standards, however projects that are simpler in nature do not, and having them over engineered only raises cost.
Because of our vast network, Monarch can offer virtually all manufacturing processes and is always looking to increase our database with more options. Here are some examples:
Monarch utilizes the industry standard for 2d and 3d designs with Solidworks. The Solidworks Design Suite allows an incredible amount of functionality to aid in the process of concept to manufactured product.
We draft within Solidworks to create DRW files for your parts. Basic drawing packages would include your part with critical dimensions and features, your company title block and any other critical company information.
Monarch can also provide updated drawings as projects and engineering dictate the need. This may include Revisions Updates, BOM Tables, Welding Information, Finish Information and but not limited to Material revisions.
Monarch can utilize non Solidworks files from many other software systems. Please be advised however, that some issues can result during the importing of engineering files which will need to be addressed.
Design for manufacturing is exactly this, in that we look at a part from the perspective of the process that is required to manufacture it, rather than the inverse. Utilizing this practice, along with a firm understanding of the essential operation of the component, can significantly reduce cost and improve throughput. Certain materials, while offering similar characteristics from an operational standpoint, can cause significant issues during the manufacturing process. Over-Engineering can greatly increase part costs, and many times a .010 difference in tolerancing can increase a part cost by 4 times. Also, new technology may be able to make your part must faster than older machines, so understanding which partners to utilize for specific parts can greatly reduce cost and lead times.
Monarch makes no claim to Engineer components or Processes. We currently do not have in house Engineers to stamp drawings such as structural components. We do however have significant experience in the design of Machined, Sheet Metal, and Welded Components. We can coordinate a PE stamp if necessary for your project.
CAM or Computer Aided Machining is digital software that can create toolpaths and simulations.
This is a very competitive market and Monarch Manufacturing chose to utilize SolidCAM for its CAM design. SolidCAM is the leading integrator for CAM software and is seamlessly integrated into Solidworks. SolidCAM is the only CAM with the unmatched, patented iMachining solution. SolidCAM & iMachining provide unbelievable savings and increased efficiency in your CNC milling operations, resulting into profits and success for our customers worldwide.
With its unique patented “morphing spirals”, intelligent island separation and Moating, iMachining provides you with the shortest cycle times in the industry. The cutting angle constantly adjusts between a minimum and a maximum value, while the feed is dynamically adjusted to ensure constant mechanical and thermal load on the tool - providing you with the longest tool life at the highest Material Removal Rate (MRR) possible. Since spirals have higher MRR than Trochoidal tool paths, iMachining utilizes various, patented strategies that enable it to use spirals much more often than Trochoidals. iMachining automatically reduces vibrations to prevent excessive tool wear and also decreases the likelihood of forming temporary thin walls that often lead to costly tool damage. Using advanced rest material knowledge(remaining stock), iMachining maintains the highest level of cutting tool engagement by avoiding "air-cuts" and repositioning moves. iMachining 3D analyzes all cuts and determines the most efficient grouping of these cuts to reduce tool travel throughout the cut.
Monarch can design a POST specific to your machine utilizing your machines G&M Codes.
To get started, please upload a print or 3d model file along with machine type. Please also list tooling you would prefer to run for this project. Because of SolidCAM’s high speed nature, we recommend using tooling no larger than ½’’ diameter in CAT 40 holders.
Monarch is a free service with no subscription fees like some integrated suppliers.
Monarch prices goods and projects based on fair market value for materials, machine time, management, and logistics.
30% DOWN WITH 70% DUE ON RECEIPT for standard orders. Net 30 Terms are available for accounts that qualify.
Monarch guarantees quality on every order. We strive to outline necessary criteria during the quotation process to make sure we understand your requirements. In the instances that you are not satisfied with your parts, Monarch will have your parts remade or reworked at no additional cost to your specifications.
If there are issues with your print or digital file which leads to quality or fitment issues, we will do our best to help correct the issues for the lowest cost to you.
Change orders unfortunately happen during the build of some projects. As soon as the Request is made, Monarch will notify all parties and discuss the correct course of action to maintain logistics and cost. Unfortunately, sometimes parts may already be cut or manufactured, thus would incur expenses for remanufacturing.
There are very few others that can offer, and guarantee the quality of work offered by Monarch. My company has maintained a good working relationship with Monarch’s Director of Operations for many years, and I’ve personally never worked with many people who are as thorough as he is. Not only does working with Monarch guarantee high quality products, but you also get design consulting and tips on manufacturability/cost reduction/improvements from highly skilled folks. I haven’t had many projects with Monarch yet since their recent launch, but everything I’ve sent their way so far has worked out great (as expected).
