Clamason pride themselves in providing customers with solutions to remove cost from existing components through value engineering. Clamason have had major success in re designing aluminium castings, extrusions and machined parts to pressed parts giving huge costs savings to both piece prices and tooling lifetime costs. For more information please read our case study on cast to pressed examples click here.
It is not always possible to re design a machined parts as a pressing although Clamason have had success on several occasions.
In one case a 100% machined part was re designed as a hybrid of pressing and then a final machining operation, reducing the machining by > 50% and giving the customer a significant cost saving.
In another case Clamason completely re designed a machined rack utilising pressed laminations which are joined together, which again gave the customer huge cost savings.
