CAD Design

Over the last few decades companies have been utilising Computer Aided Design (CAD) more and more to design and document everything, from two-dimensional factory layouts to three-dimensional mechanical pieces of equipment.

CAD Design

This process helps the customer visualise the final layout of the factory. It also visualises the final design of the product they purchased. It also improves the efficiency of the process and eliminate errors that may come from hand sketches.

CAD Design Example

Our mechanical designers work in conjunction with our fabricators and mechanical fitters. This ensures efficiency in both the design and manufacturing processes. The fabricator role ensures we can make the design in real life.

This process means the mechanical designer does not need to redesign the part for fabrication. The communication between our shop floor and design office is crucial. It ensures we get the most out of both sides of the manufacturing process while saving our clients time and money.

Jarlam Australia has the capability to assist you with both mechanical design and fabrication processes by utilising Autodesk, AutoCAD and Autodesk Inventor software.

We store all our components in AutoDesk Vault, which allows us to access the component remotely. This means that our engineer can access the file from anywhere. They can also modify any component when required without the need to return to the office.

Another benefit of utilising AutoDesk Vault, our designer can avoid redrawing the same parts repeatedly. This also allows us to utilise parts from previous job flawlessly on the new design.

2D Layout

All factory improvement projects start with reviewing current and existing layouts. This review ensures the accuracy and safe access to all equipment in a conceptual layout. Often there are many restrictions within processing plants (other equipment lines, refrigeration lines, heating or cooling lines, etc.) that all provide their own unique challenge to each layout. Through years of experiencem our draftsman works through the design systematically to ensure each item is meticulously placed for product flow. This design utilises as little footprint as possible while satisfying our customers requirements.




Our mechanical designers have been involved in continuous factory improvement layouts, as well as the design of mechanical equipment. This includes:

  • Conveyors
  • Platforms
  • Walkways
  • Passthroughs
  • Trolleys, and more

With the experience of our mechanical designer, Jarlam can ensure that we can supply a solution of your design needs.

3D Model

Our design engineers and draftsman are also capable of designing components or equipment in 3D space. If no sketch or drawings for existing machinery are available, we can reverse engineer based on our client’s requirements for any particular component or equipment to develop a 3D model.

Majority of conceptual design is best presented in three-dimensional space, and Jarlam are capable of supplying 3D drawing in a PDF format.

Customers will be able to view the part or machine without requiring a CAD program.

Bill of Material (BOM)

We supply all our mechanical assembly drawings with accurate and detailed BOM. This will allow the ordering of the material necessary for swift, correct fabrication. The BOM may also serve as a spare parts list for customer in the future.



You can never separate engineering from testing of material and simulating how mechanical system behaves in real word. By simulating this, we can complete the fabrication process without the need to go through multiple revisions to satisfy our customers’ requirements.


To begin with, our customer supplies us with rough sketch of the design requirements. Our team then supplies a concept drawing quickly (depending on the complexity of the design).

From here, there our engineer will discuss the project with our customer to ensure that all requirements have been covered and that our customer is happy with the final design.

The last stage of the process will be the completion of the fabrication drawings/technical drawings so that we can fabricate the design on the shop floor.
