Precision Steel Casting - Key component as part of an agricultural plough
To reduce component weight, reduce individual part inventory, reduce part handling and labour to manufacture culminating in significant cost reduction.
GMS assisted with the design in converting the component from a multipart fabricated and machined assembly to a one piece precision finished machined steel casting. This individual component has enabled the customer to reduce inventory, deploy the required labour with other tasks, reduce component weight at the same time improve performance. In addition a 30% part cost saving was achieved.
