AMS Success Story
Tier-One Automotive SupplierA Midwest automotive manufacturer came to AMS seeking an upgrade to the equipment they use to produce an air intake manifold they supply to a major automotive OEM. Some of the upgrades included: leak-testing five outlets to a pressure of 30psi with a maximum leak rate of 10cc/min. and the addition of nine ‘poka-yoke’ features… all while minimizing production cost, reducing the floor space required, and cutting the cycle time for the production process.
AMS engineered a custom solution by implementing a Zaxis leak tester with several special additions. The new production process begins with a part being loaded into a custom 3-D nest in the Zaxis, then a variety of photoelectric and laser sensors are employed for precision, and operator safety is ensured by a Keyence light curtain and Omron PLC. Ultimately, each part is being produced and tested successfully with a total cycle time under 30 seconds. Floor space was kept to a minimum, and production costs were reduced to the manufacturer’s satisfaction.
This is a great example of AMS surpassing customers’ expectations!
“AMS is 100% involved in projects from the prototype stage through completion of the project at our facility. But there is a lot more that makes AMS stand out from others. AMS is in constant communication throughout the project build, providing weekly (at minimum) updates. When last minute design changes come up (as often happens in the automotive industry) AMS always does what is necessary to take care of the customer! AMS is always available to help troubleshoot problems, or if necessary, come to our facility to work on an issue. One final point, AMS is always working to make improvements during each project launch, helping their customer continuously Improve. AMS Is highly recommended.”
