Case Studies

How Assembly Design And Manufacturing Improves Products

Engineered components, when combined into assemblies, can advance a product’s performance as they have in today’s highly efficient and reliable automobiles. New standards are set when individual components are redesigned into more efficient assemblies leading to vastly improved performance. Such is the case with vehicles of all types as most components such as shock absorbers redesigned of new, lighter materials last longer and are more cost effective to manufacture.

How Over-molding Improves Product Performance

Creating molded rubber parts with inserts involves considerable preparation before and after molding. These tips can help ensure a durable finished part while minimizing production costs.
