There is going about production/process issue in this concreat case, which means increasing of usage of other materials and operator force, but even with that fixation issue still return in the simillar form and on the simillar places.
After our analysis we could directly marked working place which caused this problem, concretely there is going about vibration welding of plastic materials. At the same time we discovered rootcause in the different status of parts and jigs. We proposed and realized process steps for solving completely this isuue.
After problem solving there was an independent analysis made by customer which shown complete costs saving in amount of 27k€ on the other material and 42k€ on the labour costs per year.
Our company offering in the area of Technical support even the 3D print possibility for prototype parts, assembly or any other parts for dimension or functionality check or presentation.
On the picture you can see how the jig looks like when it was deliverd from the customer to our company and how it looks like after our maintenace.
Problem analysis, proposal of solution
We decide for 3D printing of face mask in our 3D printer.
In connection with studies about “surviving of virus on different materials” was clear for us, that it´ll not be ideal to print from standard plastic material.
Immediately after delivery of special material for 3D printer we start with printing of face masks / respirators against COVID-19.
Our company attend on IIF (International Industry Fair) in Brno 2017, where presented IONIZATION and CLEANING systems from company DR ESCHERICH and SYSTEMS FOR surface treatment by FLAME, PLASMA and CORONA from company ENERCON.
