Precision fit in every detail
While the final test bench tuning is underway and the marketing concept is being deepened, designers and component developers coordinate the individual parts: no easy task – the parts must match the material and the process. And vice versa. The strategy is clear: everything comes from one source. This also applies to the choice of project managers. The tasks within the JÄGER Group are clearly defined and assigned up to the last work and project steps. Clear responsibilities ensure fast, stringent processes.
The client‘s technicians determine in project meetings for each item exactly where the production challenge lies, how the specified tolerances are to be evaluated and fulfilled. Where is there no alternative to dimensional stability, where can tolerances be extended?
The material variant of the special glass-fibre reinforced PP requested by the customer throws production back again and again in the first attempts: This demanding material has an enormously high stability, but not everyone is able to process it. In this case, too, the housing parts for the batteries initially warp continuously. The solution is to be found in the quick and quite unusual, because very direct, exchange of knowledge between all those involved in the mold: the engineers relocate the injection points where the material is injected into the mold.
While still on the machine, the colleagues work out all the necessary improvements and avoid time-consuming correction cycles. The engineers implement the changes, sometimes overnight. After just 24 hours, the optimized molds are installed on the injection molding machine again. The project manager of the JÄGER Group personally monitors the production status and the sampling.
