A major manufacturing company was experiencing a high defect rate from a long running part and needed to quickly improve quality. After meeting with the prospective client and outlining our many years of experience, they moved the existing progressive die from their former supplier to Pentar.
The existing tooling was a two-out progressive family die that at the time was producing an imbalance of inventory.
Pentar quickly modified the tooling to produce either or both parts. This eliminated the imbalance, allowed the production of the exact number of pieces required, and improved quality.
The customer yielded a savings of over $20,000 in inventory in the first qtr.
