Replacing Welds. Reducing Costs


WS Steel is a tier one manufacturer of
agricultural and power industry products one of the products they make was a
medical cabinet for use in the pharmaceutical and hospital industry
used for storing supplies and hazardous waste 3M™ VHB™ Tape essentially helps form the skeleton of the product it’s actually applied on the back of the
stiffeners in between exterior panels in the cabinet transfers the loads and the
stresses that are seen across an entire surface wheras when it comes to welding
are spot welding specifically not only is there deformation and needs to be removed
later there’s also a potential for an impact to to break one of those welds.
With 3M™ VHB™ Tape workers are able to handle a product with ease, it’s safe,
it’s easy to use, its very intuitive to handle it tape and to apply at tape product. Before, during the process it took roughly two hours to three hours to spot
while then assemble everything then another 4 or 5 hours to sand and repair
the product for the customer wheras now we no longer have to do the sanding process so
we can put together a cabinet and ready to deliver to customers in under an hour with the 3M™ VHB™ Tape we’re able to
achieve a 20 percent reduction in our manufacturing costs. Manufacturing is a fast pace environment you don’t always have and some lead time sometimes you get a
product I would sometimes our overall processes and our ability to respond to
customer demands it improved drastically as well once everybody became
comfortable with it I actually had other project managers coming up to me and
saying to me “can we use this product. Can we use 3M™ VHB™ Tape for for this product how would I use it for pertaining to this project to improve the welding process
