Shear Genius WCS Industries Case Studies

The Challenge

A WCS Industries’ customer had been buying a completely CNC machined part. It was a very expensive process, and parts were failing in the field. (The part is used in a shear for cutting vinyl or sheet metal sheeting. This unit can adapt your cordless drill into a shear).

Design Criteria

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

The Solution

We converted the part to cold heading with minimal secondary machining and were able to save our customer 60% on the total cost of the finished part. In addition, we were able to increase the overall strength and eliminate those failures in the field.
