This client encountered unexpected reliability issues on a new product shortly before product launch. A reliable fix would require implementing a new step in the manufacturing process and custom equipment. They needed a partner that could immediately engage with their process development team and in parallel, develop the custom equipment necessary to implement this improvement. The goal was to meet the original product launch date.
Andrews-Cooper engineers immediately engaged with the customer’s process development team to define process parameters for a pulsed heat thermal bond process. Shortly after, Andrews-Cooper kicked off the design and build of a low-volume Pulsed Heater Bond System capable of making production-quality bonds and meet early manufacturing volumes. Through hard work and leveraging our powerful network of suppliers, Andrews-Cooper was able to deliver a complete and tested system eight weeks after kickoff. The rapid turnaround of a high quality system provided incredible value to the client.
