Product Redesign Vastly Reduces Components, Labor and Costs

“Our solution was to redesign the main component of the product which ultimately allowed us to replace 15 parts with one, newly-designed, injection-molded part.”


Project Brief


Our client purchased a business featuring an overly complex and labor-intensive product line. He brought it to DI Labs looking for ways to streamline manufacturing and assembly, which would ultimately reduce costs and improve margins. Our solution was to redesign the main component of the product which ultimately allowed us to replace 15 parts with one, newly-designed, injection-molded part.

our client said:
“They just have the it factor when it comes to hands-on stuff. The product that I manufacture was formerly 15 components. They looked at it and immediately recognized the idea of a one-piece molded product. They eliminated 1,000 hours of labor and it’s less expensive.”
