Manufacturing Process Improvement for a Solar Industry Component
Solar Industry Component
A.J. Rose knows that virtually every prospective and existing customer regularly faces a variety of quality, safety, production and cost challenges. As a result, we've honed our ability to ask the right questions, listen strategically and develop practical, effective solutions that offer multiple wins.
A client turned to us because their current stamping vendor was providing a fallout rate that was unacceptable on one of their deep drawn stamping products. We evaluated the stamping and determined that if the component were to include both new and modified features, the part could be manufactured using an entirely different process. We leveraged our in-depth knowledge of deep-draw forming as well as our understanding of raw materials to come up with a viable solution.
Once the client gave us the go-ahead, we designed and built new tooling and developed a new machine to accommodate the new process. As a result, the solar energy customer reaps the cost-savings associated with our ability to reduce the scrap fallout to under 2%.
