Case Study—Location, Location, Location

Department: Engineering/Quality Industry: Medical

Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Benefit

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