At CW Thomas, your vision is our mission. A potential client wanted a single cover part for a dental imaging machine.
Their incumbent supplier said the client’s design was impossible. It needed to be made from three pieces. They suggested to create the part as one molded cover, one piece of profile-extruded plastic, and one molded part. All pieces would then be bonded together to make the part.
CW Thomas engineers made the impossible, possible. We collaborated with the client to develop a solution that achieved the initial goal of a single piece construction. The CW Thomas solution not only saved tooling cost, development time, and production time but also reduced the overall risk of imperfection. The client’s industrial designer was wowed, and CW Thomas had a new loyal client.
