We follow and manage the entire process from design, value engineering, manufacturing, production monitoring, quality control, shipping and installation through to post-occupancy evaluation.
Each project is assigned a project manager to ensure quality control and quality assurance (QC/QA) and to facilitate timely follow-through for the entire duration of a project. By fully documenting the process in our 3D Engineering drawings, add-on and replacement orders are a snap.
dTank brings the Swiss tradition of precision and workmanship, providing the most advanced, state-of-the-art engineering, to the creation of sophisticated furniture solutions. Our streamlined engineering process eliminates unnecessary steps and padding of material usage and costs.
Virtual assembly modeling helps us save time and the cost of physical prototypes and remanufacturing. eDrawings streamline design collaborations with architects, designers and vendors with in-depth design details.
Manufacturing efficiency is achieved by virtual creation of the mechanical relationships of surfaces, edges, curves, and vertices. By conducting interference, collision and hole alignment checks for fasteners and assembly hardware, we can avoid conflicts such as over constraining a component.
dTank’s corporate commitment is to actively promote sustainable practices in our facilities and is a cornerstone of our business philosophy. The dTank manufacturing process actively addresses environmental stewardship in a variety of ways.
Our practice is to use locally sourced materials and manufacturing wherever possible, without sacrificing dTank’s Swiss precision engineering. We are committed to quality manufacturing while reducing our carbon footprint and costs.
dTank integrates the manufacturing process from concept to fabrication. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities include a fully-equipped shop for metal, wood, foam fabrication, upholstery, glass, casting, and stone. The fusion of fabrication technologies with the expertise of our industrial designers and engineers into one simple manufacturing process is how we define "Design Driven Fabrication."
dTank has earned a well-deserved reputation for utilizing new and innovative materials in unique ways to create the products our clients demand, limited only by the client’s imagination and budget.
THE FINAL TOUCHES
Our job doesn't end at the factory. dTank will see your project through the delivery and expert installation of your furniture at its final destination.
In most cases, the lead-time falls between 4 and 8 weeks. Manufacturing lead times will, of course, vary based on the size and complexity of your final order. dTank has established relationships with expert shipping, delivery and installation companies nationwide, providing professional “white glove” service from our factory to your installation site.
