Re: State Wide Manufacturing Capacity/Growth Management. Essential Manufacturing Businesses — Our country is presently operating as history is forming around us with the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. We are reaching out to you, our nation’s essential manufacturers, to see if there are engineering or manufacturing services we may provide to companies who suddenly find themselves in a high volume or high demand situation. We understand the many obstacles facing every business with customer demands, capacity concerns or even staff shortages due [...]
ISO 9000 standards create a blueprint for organizations to pursue “continuous improvement.” It’s a management practice that implies no company should ever be satisfied with the conditions of a process at the given moment, and management should always be looking for ways to improve the process. Within the ISO 9000 family of standards, ISO 9001 is the only standard that allows for certification. For more than 30 years, ISO 9001 has served as an international benchmark that specifies requirements for [...]
If the U.S. manufacturing sector stood alone, it would be the world’s ninth-largest economy, according to the National Association of Manufacturers. Since the 1990s, advanced manufacturing techniques have developed rapidly to reduce costs, improve productivity, and heighten competitive advantage. Lean manufacturing systems, like pallet conveyor systems, evolved from advanced manufacturing concepts. Pallet conveyor systems reduce, or eliminate, the need for traditional handling equipment used by operators. By reducing the amount of handling, time is saved and precision is increased. Pallet [...]

In subtractive manufacturing choosing the best machine to create a part is imperative. From material to geometries to setup times and more, the right tool can lead to increased time and cost savings. In the aerospace industry, parts require high tolerance and can be comprised of complex geometries. Often the use of a 5-axis CNC milling machine will reduce the number of complex part setups required when machining multiple planes to respective datums. A 5-axis CNC machine produces very precise [...]
Continuing the education on automotive seats… seat assembly in mass production starts with an assembly conveyor pallet. Saginaw Industries designs and produces these assembly conveyor pallets. Two different styles are presented. Each seat travels on the "conveyor through a number of assembly stations starting with the seat frame and then onto the electronic options (heated seats, seat belt detector, air bag sensors, speakers, lumbar support, seat control motors) then the cushions followed by the seat material (cloth or leather). Each [...]
See the 3D CAD diagram become a machined mold base. Followed with a photo of a completed seat mold base. Pour in the foam resin mix, close the mold, allow time for the mold to expand and harden. Open the mold—pull the part out. Just like baking bread!
