Reverse Engineering Services for Manufacturer of Refrigeration Compressors

The Client Requirement

The Client

Our client is a manufacturer and supplier of spare parts for a wide range of refrigeration compressors throughout the UK, Europe and Middle East.

Situation - Business Needs

The client had a specific need of carrying out reverse engineering on fiber gaskets so as to derive solid models in DXF AutoCAD file format. The business need resulted from issues like dearth of skilled resources and budgetary limitations. The client decided to garner and examine offshore possibilities to leverage on the cost advantage from an offshore solution, given that order volumes were significantly high. It also wanted to capitalize on the competency of an outsourcing vendor to streamline its operations and achieve greater efficiency.

The client's business situation entailed -

  • Reverse engineering of hundreds of gaskets according to predefined specifications
  • Shipping the gaskets to an offshore location
  • Deriving error-free true dimensional DXF output of each gasket
  • Using the DXF files to set up shapes needed to cut the gaskets to precision


Some of the key challenges faced during the course of the project were -

  • The gaskets came in various shapes and sizes - adding to the complexity of the job
  • Measuring, analyzing and testing each gasket design meticulously to preserve design intent
  • Providing a true dimensional DXF file accurate to the original in an editable electronic format
  • Working within the budgetary constraints and a stipulated time frame set by the client
