For window manufacturers the replacement market is huge but the problem with replacement windows is that the sizes are not standardized. So a window manufacture has a hard time creating tooling to fill some of these sizes that might not have warranted full production tooling. That was then. This is now.
||The goal of this unique program was to be able to produce flexible mold that would form specialty frame covers from .041 PVC sheet for windows in .125 size increments that are typically run in low lot sizes. Omnitools task was to design and build the tooling that would be integrated within a brand new custom Modern shuttle former. |
||This tooling had lots of extras added to it for quick change over times. In the first year alone they did over 20,000 changeovers.|
||The scale of this tool is amazing. The cooling plate size was 68 x 92 and the stick mount plate had over 2300 (¼-20) holes. The Mold required a temperature controller as well as an Ethernet connection.|
