MERGON VALUES ENGINEERS NEW PRODUCTS DESIGN TO SAVE OUR CUSTOMERS
Our customer invited us to visit their design and development center to review their next generation of products. During the meeting Mergon personnel got an in-depth look at how the existing product we made interfaced with the device.
We returned back to our own facility and brainstormed how we could make the existing design better - and cheaper!
An initial proposal was made to our customer to gauge their level of interest and commitment to changing the product. Thankfully in this case they were fully engaged and agreed to go along with us on all the changes we sought.
We work hand in glove with the design department of many of our customers.By challengin on existing product design and validating an alternative proposal with one of our leading business equipment customers, Mergon managed to reduce the number of components in the product from 9 to 4. The biggest saving was the elimination of a welding operation and an injection moulder component through the innovative use of blow moulding design principles.
