De vrais résultats, un impact réel

30%

Assembly Cost Reduction

10%

Cab Weight Savings

Situation
Un important fabricant de machines de construction a cherché à réduire le poids de la cabine de son nouveau modèle afin d'augmenter l'efficacité par machine de plusieurs centaines de dollars en moyenne.

La solution
Our engineers applied their expertise and innovative approach starting early in the design stage through to quality and durability testing. They walked the customer’s line and identified opportunities to cut assembly process. Additionally, our regional quality laboratories played an important role in ensuring our proposed fastening solution was corrosion resistant whilst providing the level of frictional consistency that met the customer’s requirements.

Résultat
Our engineers cut assembly process costs by over 30%. Plus, our deep level of analysis and solution testing enabled a reduction of cab weight by 10% with final cost savings well beyond the original BOM.
