Eliminating Excess WCS Industries Case Studies

The Challenge

A prospective customer approached us with an assembled component looking for cost reduction. What they had consisted of a machined part and hobbed gear which required brazing in a furnace in order to join the two pieces together.

Design Criteria

  • Fit into existing space limitation of assembly
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase strength
  • Eliminate failures

The Solution

Working through the dimensional requirements and tolerances our engineers proposed a one piece solution. The part is now headed and machined to add the groove. Significant savings were realized by reducing the number of items to manage, reducing the assembly cost and increasing the production rate.
