How a North Carolina Manufacturer Eliminated Three Manufacturing Steps with a Single Partner
At PST, our engineers never stop asking “what if.” Asking that question helped a North Carolina manufacturer eliminate three tedious manufacturing steps.
This manufacturer—which works in the hog industry—came to us with a specific request for a six-foot screw shaft that would become part of a curtain drive mechanism.
While we were ready to quote and supply just what they wanted, our engineers decided to take a closer look at how the part would ultimately get used.
When they did, they asked, “Why don’t we make this whole end out of a single piece of metal instead of coupling and pinning various nuts and shafts?” PST partnered with the manufacturer to come up with the design. Then PST created a working prototype so everyone could see, feel and more easily approve the time-saving, cost-saving option.
You can count on PST engineers to ask “what if” too. We’re happy to quote what you’re asking for and partner with you to find other possible solutions.
