Triangle Manufacturing Can Help OEMs Lower Cost with Fewer Components

Share Article

This new low cost alteration will reduce bolt-usage and diminish time-consuming assembly leading to overall cost-reduction and an increase in production through assembly. Whether the addition of a projection, or a total design overhaul, Triangle can re-engineer your components and help OEMs get the most out of their design from both a cost and quality perspective.

Triangle's engineers say that they sought a way to reduce the need for multiple small parts, such as bolts, washers and screws. Although the cost of a single bolt is modest, costs rise through lengthy assembly time.

Triangle's creative engineering continues its commitment to reducing both number of parts and cost through innovation. Now any custom or standard fabricated motion components can be altered by adding a projection, a feature that is projected out the opposite side of the component, rather than adding a second mounting hole. This projection takes the place of the second bolt and stops the part from rotating. The component will function the same as with two bolts without sacrificing mounting ability or strength.

Triangle can also develop components that replace other parts and combine them into one, well-designed, functional part. This saves on production, shipping and assembly costs. Through Triangle's stamping and compressing processes, highly formed metal components can be produced without weakening the metal. Using the process of cold extrusion allows manipulation of the metal on the shop floor without adding additional welding processes and more cost.

This time-saving development can be utilized on bearing mounts,flange or pillow block; and in custom-designed solutions, such as the fuel injection component or the headlight mechanism described above. This low cost alteration will reduce bolt-usage and diminish time-consuming assembly leading to overall cost-reduction and an increase in production through assembly.

Whether the addition of a projection, or a total design overhaul, Triangle can re-engineer your components and help OEMs get the most out of their design from both a cost and quality perspective.
