Project Brief


Our client manufactures a plastic product that requires hand-cutting at the end of the production line. The knife solution they were using was unsafe and created a ragged edge on the plastic. With one of their best customers coming for an inspection within 24 hours, they had an immediate, urgent need for a cutting solution that would consistently produce a clean edge and ultimately enhance the safety of employees. Our team designed, tested and delivered a customized cutting tool to the plant floor by the next day, giving our client the ability to meet their own customer’s expectations.

solution:
Our design team saw the problem, observed the current process, then custom designed a cutting tool for use by downstream employees. It was tested and iterated several times and is now used throughout our client’s many manufacturing locations.
