Outdoor Power Equipment Metal Fabrication Case Study
The most critical feature in laser cutting the disks was the slots. Their placement needed to be exact along with a tight tolerance to ensure correct alignment with the blade’s tabs. Our quality system establishes the programming of the laser is correct with a set-up check; and then in-process checks…
High Volume Metal Stamping Case Study
The customer’s production needs are 600,000 – 700,00 pieces per year for FIVE different shells having a uniform shape with slight variations in each design. The shells shown to the left are almost identical except for the design and dimensions of their bottom lips. The previous supplier was utilizing secondary machining to crimp the lip […]
Small Engine Metal Stamped Part Case Study
The governor weight plays a critical role in an engine’s performance and the slightest deviation can lead to engine failure. The following issues needed to be fixed to maintain the engine’s reputation for quality and dependability.
Increasing Output and Precision with Robotics Case Study
There was increasing variability when welding the hinges onto the footboards and this was risking the quality and functionality of the part.
Manufacturing costs were growing to an unacceptable level as production quantities continued to increase.
Achieving Tight Tolerances in a Progressive Die Case Study
Collaborative sessions with the customer helped Ultra fully understand the functionality and features of the thrust ring and established a productive setting for die designing and building. It was identified that the part’s tabs required a tight tolerance of no more than .062” to achieve correct alignment with threads during the multi-assembly process.
