Sustaining production and cosmetic standards
Our 800-ton stamping press combined with our secondary, high-quality services proved Ultra could completely handle the ramp’s production all at ONE facility.
The ramp is manufactured on a progressive die that includes only ONE forming station to complete that stage of production.
This was leading to a decline in the precision and quality of work being performed. Concern was growing that this inconsistent service would negatively impact the quality of their products.
The customer’s plan of action was to establish a tool & die shop that could successfully handle the quantity and diversity of their dies for regular preventative maintenance and unexpected service issues.
Ultra was able to deliver a customized service plan to fit the needs of the customer.
This customer needed a different design intent for the filter cutting component of a die utilized in an existing assembly machine. The current design was causing cutting and maintenance issues; leading to a decrease in the quality and consistency of their final product. Our design team reengineered this die and the cutting component with a […]
Increasing Output and Precision with Robotics
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.
Proving Designs with Prototyping
This Manufacturer was encountering increasing costs and difficulty in maintaining accuracy with a two-piece welded aluminum assembly frame with inserted hardware. The company tasked Ultra to develop an inexpensive one-piece design that improved part accuracy and eliminated assembly.
