Emergency Production Run
Possessing a broken rotary stamp, originally used to make their products, a client from Heater Probes Industrial Dielectric contacted our company requesting that we apply our advanced water jet cutting technology to immediately manufacture a series of heater probe shields. These shields are used as an insulator between two electrical components. Based off a customer-supplied design, we employed white formex, a flame retardant polypropylene, measuring four feet in length and four inches in width, as the base material. Upholding a (+/-) .005 inch precision tolerance, we were able to produce these shields that measured .031 inches in thickness.
Placing parchment paper between each layer to keep the edges from bonding together during manufacturing, we then tumbled each stack to produce a finished product. This process allowed us to both separate the parchment paper from each layer, and to ensure each part possessed a smooth material finish.
Running our machinery for six weeks (with Saturday and Sunday as cushion time), we were able to employ a combination of our water jet machinery and tumbling service to mass manufacture over 25,000 high-quality heater probe shields per day that met NSF specifications (with a minimal cost added for fixtures used for raw material support while cutting). Offering just-in-time service for local, on-site pick-up, Abrasive Waterjet continues to ensure the absolute satisfaction of our clients.
