Competitive pressure in the Electronic Component Industry
has driven this manufacturer to continually look for ways
to maximize operating efficiency.
Cut expendable tooling costs.
Working as a team with the customer's Engineering and Purchasing
Departments in both the US and Mexico a strategy was developed
that included the company's Planning Department to forecast
tooling needs. PTD additionally recommended tooling material
modifications that could increase tooling life.
Tooling life, in some applications, was extended by 40% and
overall tooling costs were reduced by 26% providing the customer
