Customer: Leading robotics manufacturer for order fulfillment automation.
Project details: With the functionality of the unit proved out, it was high time to get the outer covers designed and implemented for a trial run.
Challenges: Initial product was required within 6 weeks and design concepts had not even been thought of. The customer, Bo-Mer and our tool shop’s engineers worked hand in hand designing the cover package. Within a four hour period, the designs were complete which included up to 27 actuated sections. These features added to the functionality, robustness and aesthetics of the covers. Along with pushing the limits in molding, sensor areas had to be 5-axis machined to within an extreme tolerance range.
Product was delivered from the production tooling within the agreed upon timeline and the covers fit like a glove all thanks to early involvement and thinking out of the box from all parties.
