The company was having extrusion quality issues coupled with
premature die wear and die interchangeability.
Tooling that produces to specification and reduced tool change-over
After meeting and consulting with the customer's Engineering
and Machine Techs to review their challenges, PTD discovered
the Tooling being supplied by the OEM was not being manufactured
to specification. PTD then produced a set of sample tooling
for the customer to try.
The sample tool set solved the quality issues the customer
was experiencing while reducing change over time by 70%. Additionally,
they were able to remove the set, take it to another assembly
line, install, and push the go button with out having to readjust
the station to accommodate new tools. As an added benefit
a PTD suggested material change improved Tool life by 30%.
