Bottle Pucks - Jigs & Fixturing
Additive Manufacture was used to supply tooling to replace conventionally manufactured jigs. A conveyor was used to transit blow moulded toner bottles for automated checking. Ricoh UK Products Limited (RPL) manufacture 3 blow moulded bottle variants, therefore a solution was required to incorporate 3 jigs into one design. By utilising a lightweight design through the AM design service and a series of interchangeable parts made to consistent standards, RPL were able to offer an engineered cost effective solution and increased yield by 20%.
