Unmet need

Improve efficiency of a manufacturing process.

Scope

Federal Mogul approached Slingshot to create a new and more efficient manufacturing process for the product family known as TwistTube®. This new process centered on the idea of first cutting the textile material to a desired length and then transforming it into tubes of varying diameters.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

  • Visualization of a new manufacturing process for client to allow for easy internal project discussions.

  • Created a working proof-of-concept prototype.

 
Breakthrough


Ideate appropriate equipment designs required to push individual pieces of a flexible material through the machine rather than pull a continuous length of material.

Maintain existing product aesthetics and specification of TwistTube®.

Increase throughput.
