Industry: Wood Working
The customer has been making these parts for 30 years at high volumes, and their previous vendor's tooling was worn. The customer was having to rework the casting 100 percent.
The customer was scrapping parts due to defects caused by the worn tooling. The tooling was also constructed many years ago and didn’t have any usable prints or models to develop new tooling.
Milwaukee Precision Casting created new 3D scans that created good castings. These 3D scans also created prints and CAD models to construct new tooling.
MPC used its resources to make prints and CAD models for the customer to approve. To verify the geometry prior to constructing the tool, MPC 3D printed wax patterns for the customer to check fit and function.
