At J&E, our long history of manufacturing sheet metal components enables us to offer our customers design support for manufacturability and cost-effectiveness. These were exactly the qualities that spurred one of our food appliance customers to contact us when they needed a continual supply of thousands of high-quality galvanized steel dispenser mechanisms. We fabricated the handles out of galvanized and zinc plated 18 GA steel sheets, which were subsequently turret punched and formed according to customer specifications and 2D CAD drawings. In addition to assembling the handles, we were able to source additional components as needed to complete the project. We followed up the final assembly with dimensional and visual inspections, as well as functionality testing. The steel dispenser handles are 12” long, 5” wide, and made to exacting tolerances of ±0.010”.
Like all of the products we fabricate, these dispensers had to work flawlessly and they had to be available at a moment’s notice. Our quality assurance’s administrative and procedural practices prevented manufacturing mistakes and eliminated defects. Our assembly line of these handles now never stops. Through J&E’s fulfillment services, we monitor and manage the customer’s inventory level using a Kanban system and maintain product bins for these parts. We manufacture 8,000 to 10,000 of these handles on a regular basis and ensure proper levels at all times using the continuous bin system.
This is what we do at J&E – We provide design support and cost-effective, scheduled manufacturing of sheet metal components so our customers have one less thing about which to worry. To learn more, contact us today.
