Together with the customer, components are optimized by means of value engineering so that the most economic manufacturing methods can be used. This can achieve massive savings potential.
Value engineering is often used in the conversion of turned parts to cold-formed parts. Although nowadays the majority of standard and similar-to-standard fasteners are manufactured as cold-formed parts, this potential often remains untapped for parts designed as per drawings.
In consideration of certain principles, positive characteristics such as durability and increases in strength, which may save subsequent costs, can be achieved by the conversion.
For Wurth Industry of Canada, the application of value engineering is not restricted to a limited manufacturing spectrum, but can be applied holistically.
