Results — We discovered that the previous molder had been manufacturing this part in their smallest press, but one that was still 10x larger than what was necessary. Consequently, the material suffered an extended residence time and degraded. The solution? With our plastic injection molding services we focused on small parts and had the right size machine for the job, enabling them to:
Results — The project involved a wide variety of tooling, which we were able to source across seven different toolmakers, each with a specific skillset needed for the job. For three days, our engineers, the toolmakers, and the customer’s engineer laboriously reviewed every aspect of the tool designs to ensure the customer would get exactly when they expected when the pieces were assembled. The designs were finalized and the resulting parts were a huge success. It's great when custom plastic inection molding projects come together.
Results — The customer’s goal was to design the next generation in such a way to improve quality. In working closely with them to develop a new solution, the customer was able to:
Results — Recognizing the importance and impact that the launch would have, we enlisted and managed a wide range of material vendors, color houses, mechanical designers, and machinists to pull the project together.
Results — Working together, we helped them design a single piece with an integrated seal that performed the same every time with no adjustment needed. The customer enjoyed multiple benefits, including:
Results — Trusting that we could resolve the tooling issue, the customer went to work selling their product. In parallel, we diagnosed the issue and consulted with 2 toolmakers to fix the problems. The company hit their production deadline and didn’t miss out on a critical sales season.
Results — Our team helped their engineer identify the important functions and revise the design for manufacturability. Through this redesign, the customer was able to enjoy:
“The engineers at AIM really knocked this out of the park. They really thought through the design to ensure that the piece would meet our expectations. We will definitely be looking forward to working with AIM for all of our future projects.”
