The client is a manufacturer of sanitation products, medical supplies and research and training equipment. HPDL were given a briefing which made clear that the project was urgent and required immediate action so the client could meet their approaching deadline.
Client had a series of CAD files which needed to be reviewed and made ready for injection moulding production. The parts had to be optimised for open-and-shut moulding by modifying features such as split lines, draft angles and shut-offs, removing undercut areas, improving the coring-out of thick features and ensuring enough clearance between mating faces during assembly.
A meeting was held to discuss the project and to get as clear an understanding of the complicated and time critical client requirements as possible. Close communication and frequent reviews were maintained throughout the project. Once the meeting was over and work had commenced HPDL used annotated images of the CAD files to discuss and explain important developments in the design as it progressed. The client was fully engaged with the project and able to provide very quick feedback, allowing the project to proceed at pace.
Clear and frequent communication helped HPDL to assist the client with their urgent deadline and provide parts ready for production as quickly as was possible. The parts are now in production.
