Case Studies:

  • A customer had problems with parts cracking. Our team identified the problem as gate location, and we built a new tool with improved gating. In the past several years, zero occurences of cracking have been reported.

  • A customer needed to specify a material for a new application. Our team built a test mold and worked with material suppliers to formulate a material blend that satisfied the OEM specifications.

  • A customer had a part design that was being misused by end users. We helped them redesign the part to prevent the misuse.

  • A customer had an assembly part composed of four molded pieces. We suggested a design change that eliminated two of the molded pieces.

  • A customer had been receiving bulk-packed parts, for over two years, with a small percentage of parts being warped. Our team proved that the root cause of the warp was packaging. From there we developed a pack method for the same returnable container that would not cause warp. We then installed a Motoman 6-axis robot to pack the parts in an orderly arrangement, and our customer has received no warped parts since implementation.
