This is one example of a part redesign for our customers.
Original design from the customer. This assembly was made of 7 separate parts and required weld, metal finish, and a weld fixture.
Actual part, as redesigned
The part was redesigned by Global Body engineers. The result was a single part that required no weld or metal finish. The new part was profiled on the laser and run through a computer controlled press brake. The new design resulted in a savings of over 60% in the cost of the part.
