Conversion from Short Run to Medium/High Volume Production

A customer was seeking to convert their short run production manufacturing to medium and high run volume production, selecting Agwey Metal to take over their production in order to increase output. We completely redesigned their process, including designing new tooling. The fabrication of this product employed our advanced brake press and turret press equipment, whereupon 0.055" thick aluminum material was manipulated to the customer specified configurations while holding a tight ± 0.010" tolerances.

We were able to assume a product line that had an initial output of 250 units per month and revamp the process to realize a current volume of 4,000 units per month. As a result of this successful conversion, the customer saved $10,000 in tooling cost, and a lowering of overall product costs by close to 25%. For more details about this production volume conversion project, or additional process redesign and precision metal manufacturing capabilities available at Agwey Metal please see the table below or contact us directly.
