Lighter Design and Streamlines Assembly Cuts Costs
Optimas delivered a streamlined corrosion prevention and frictional consistency strategy for a new excavator line, all while improving overall cost savings. With our help, the customer achieved savings of over 30% in assembly process time.
Real Results, Real Impact
Assembly Cost Reduction
Cab Weight Savings
A leading manufacturer of construction machinery sought to reduce cab weight in their newest model as a way of increasing the efficiency per machine by an average of several hundred dollars.
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.
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.
