Assembly and automation
A well-known Plc were buying an assembled pharmaceutical product from a very well-known American multinational company. They were having quality issues with the assembled part which were not being resolved. The Plc came to us as they knew that we were the moulder, to see if we could help with the situation. We devised a manual solution for the assembly and were taken on as a duel supplier; however we were soon made sole supplier as we were able to demonstrate much better quality and ability to react to customer requirements.
As quantities grew from the initial 10,000 parts a month it was clear that a manual system would not be able to cope with customer requirements. Automated assembly machines were put into place and have been extremely successful and have dealt with 150,000 parts per month.
Bowles and Walker has a proven ability to able to cope with low and high volume moulding and assembly projects.
