Case Study—Location, Location, Location

Department: Engineering/Quality Industry: Medical


A component design provided by a medical industry OEM included a tab, located on a formed ear, which needed to seat in the slot of another part. Any tolerance build-up between the tab and the slot would pose an assembly issue. If produced per the design, the customer would incur expensive tooling requirements.


KAL Manufacturing recommended locating the slot off a punched edge, and then building a welding fixture to maintain the perpendicularity requirement of the design. We proved out the concept with a 75-piece sample run that was sent to the customer for validation, which they approved.


This solution resulted in a more robust design and saved our customer tooling costs in excess of 45%.
