Our client had a baseline design and the emissions control functionality was already established. Yet, as we know well, the main thing is always manufacturability. What does this mean? For starters, just because an item is assembled via automation, doesn’t mean it should be. Just because it is designed and works in a computer simulation, doesn’t mean it will translate into actual functionality.
We’re a parts manufacturer with an emphasis on realistic approaches that result in functional, economical, cost-effective products. This is an approach we incorporate into all of our concepts. At the same time, we develop strong working relationships with our clients’ engineering staff. The resulting design partnerships allow us to provide the integrated, complex assemblies our clients want.
Today, we’re a preferred supplier for this client, and we currently produce 15 part numbers for five separate vehicle lines. We’re proud to be among their top three assemblers. Our relationship is strong, continues to grow and offers consistent product quality. We’re known as the parts supplier for this type of assembly, both with our customer and in the industry.
In fact, as we’ve further developed our assembly process for this client, we’ve continuously added to our ability to generate functional and cost-effective design for our clients. This experience has contributed directly to our development of our advanced manufacturing services and the prototyping lab process we now offer our clients.
