€200,000 PER YEAR

INITIAL REQUEST

  • The proposed geometry for this piece consisted of a hexagonal head with a chip breaker.
  • The proposed material for manufacturing the component was stainless steel.

OUR PROPOSAL

  • We proposed designing the head in a circular shape with two chip breakers.
  • For the external thread, we designed a self-tapping profile with threads in the form of ridges and an entry that facilitates self-centering when mounted in the composite.
  • The material was replaced with steel with a static coating (720 hs. SST).

MUTUAL BENEFITS

  • The new design resulted in a product that was less expensive to produce and assemble, without sacrificing its functionality in terms of torque and extraction requirements.
  • With the new thread, we eliminated microencapsulation and ensured the robustness of the composite in case of a possible breakage.
  • We optimized the cost of materials.

CIRCULAR
SPACER
SAVINGS
€80,000 PER YEAR

INITIAL REQUEST

  • This component was obtained by manufacturing two parts by bar turning and fitting them together.

OUR PROPOSAL

  • We changed the manufacturing process to sheet metal stamping.
  • We redesigned one of the two pieces in a trilobular shape to assemble them by interference.

MUTUAL BENEFITS

  • By changing technology, we minimized raw material waste and optimized the manufacturing cycle.

€120,000 PER YEAR

INITIAL REQUEST

  • The manufacturing of this piece was made from a solid bar stock with a lower thread along its entire length.

 

OUR PROPOSAL

  • We proposed making it from a tube and conducting an extrusion process.
  • We defined the functional length of the thread.
  • We developed a machine to manufacture the piece in a single and quick operation without chip removal.

MUTUAL BENEFITS

  • By transitioning from two processes to one, we reduced the production cost of the piece, resulting in significant savings on raw materials and energy, as well as the final price.
