Case Study

Improved Material Development for Veterinary Equipment Manufacturer

Conversion to plastic saved time and costs

A maker of veterinary diagnostic and testing equipment needed help developing a complicated product it was rolling out to the marketplace. The equipment was traditionally made with plastic and sheet metal parts. The sheet metal parts were relatively expensive to manufacture because of many intricate subcomponents and spot welding requirements.

In the new design, more than 50 additional plastic parts were added, along with the conversion of many sheet metal components to plastic. The most complex part was an internal chassis around which many of the subassemblies were attached. Converting the chassis to plastic would provide better durability, less variability and faster manufacturing time, significantly decreasing overall production costs.
