Challenge

A tier 1 automotive component manufacturer was struggling to meet a key customer’s quality expectations due to an underperforming powdered metal component. The firm needed a precision-turned metal part that did not impact their global price competitiveness.

Solution

Anderson Precision’s engineers helped redesign the turned part, doubling tolerance precision and eliminating the need for a costly secondary operation. We reduced costs further with an advanced production and quality process, enabling high‐speed equipment manufacturing. This process included:

  • 24/7 dedicated primary and secondary operation equipment
  • Process control software and air gage dimension monitoring
  • Close subsupplier collaboration
  • 100% optical inspection
Result

The tier 1 firm met their customer’s quality goals, retaining the business and saving nearly $500,000 annually.
