How to send CAD files to Dukane

Send all data model files to Dukane at . Be sure to include as much information as possible about the project in the e-mail: i.e. contact information, project name, material selection, file revision levels, weld performance criteria, other related project requirements, purchase order number, and most importantly your Dukane Sales representative's name.

Data files may be compressed using WinZip or RAR.  If the compressed files are still too large to email, then please notify Scott Ernst at .

Customers sending data to a download site or FTP site must provide user names and passwords with each file notification.

  • Data files should include only the files that are representative to the bonding process and how they are assembled.
  • Dukane requires a Tooling Authorization Form (pdf format) to be submitted on any orders with a quoted value of over $10,000 USD. Submitting the completed form in advance along with the data will help ensure there are no delays to your order.

Once the data is received, the project information will be distributed to the appropriate Project Engineer.

How do you know whom the Project Engineer is that was assigned to the project?
Who do I notify or contact to verify receipt of customer data?

  • Contact Applications & Tooling department at 630-797-4930. Once you know who the Project Engineer is, please feel free to communicate with that person directly.
