Automotive Case Study – Dunnage

Posted on: 1st Dec 2015

Cost effective disposable components reduce labour input on the production line, improving manufacturing flow rates.

Summary

Working alongside a manufacturing partner, PolyGlobal’s experience in providing protection solutions was needed on a significant automotive project. The customer, a British car manufacturing plant, required a dunnage system to be manufactured to protect components as they moved through the assembly line; a system which could be utilized throughout the lifecycle of the manufacturing project.

Project Development

PolyGlobal initially quoted to manufacture and supply Polyurethane strips that would be machined and fitted to a metal pallet system, manufactured by its manufacturing partner. During the project development it was established a bespoke protection system would be more effective and reduce costs and lead time for the overall project. PolyGlobal supplied both injection and cast moulded parts, including high volume small components as caps and buffers, and larger clip bars and support saddles.

Solution Advantages

The bespoke solution allowed PolyGlobal’s manufacturing partner to focus on their primary engineering area, facilitating a quicker and more superior solution. Cost effective disposable components reduce labour input on the production line, improving manufacturing flow rates.
