The design for a client’s stainless steel box consisted of four pieces formed in a Z-shape at the press brake. These four pieces were then welded at the corners, which caused the stainless steel to warp slightly. The assembly had a brushed, cosmetic flange around the perimeter that would remain visible to the end user. To maintain an appealing look, the welds had to be ground, and then the flange had to be brushed.
A privately held international company was looking for a customized, aesthetically pleasing, finished piece to complement an existing prototype. After the previous manufacturer sent a broken piece, the company needed a quick delivery for a presentation. They needed a prototype shop they could trust.
A privately held company needed a completed panel from start to finish. Due to pressure from a customer, the company had a tight deadline to deliver the panel. The company turned to Estes Accelerator – Product Development & Prototyping for help. Estes Accelerator projects are led by one project manager from start to finish, which significantly reduces lead-time. Zero handoffs mean information is not lost or sitting on someone else’s desk waiting to move down the line.
