Mould design with removable inserts to cut down costs by half
December 8, 2020

Customer Name: Jean Muller

Component Name: Yellow cover

The customer required two similar covers, one with a locking rib and one without. Since the rib was large, two separate moulds were required. That will increase the project cost by double, and hence it will not be a cost-effective solution.

TPI team designed the mould with the removable inserts installed along with it. These inserts allowed the customer to use a single mould to obtain two different components, thereby cutting the costs by half.

The customer was not only able to launch his product into the market but was also able to do so in a cost-effective manner. This helped him to capture a larger portion of the market share than they initially do.
