Assignment:

Navistar came to Three R Plastics Inc. With a need for securing a fuel injector clip.  Three R Plastics Inc. Needed to not only manufacture the molds, but assist in the design of a simple clip with a very critical purpose.

Process:

Three R Plastics Inc. Met with Navistar on several occaisions.  An initial design was created and the ball began rolling from there.  After approval of designs, Three R Plastics Inc. began rapid prototyping the required parts.  SLA models would have been too brittle to test, requiring machined models.  This was a perfect situation for having such a capable tool room in house.  After the models and designs were approved, Three R Plastics went into producing a high volume mold for the customer.  After countless molded parts, these tools have yet to be down for repair.

Accomplishment:

Three R Plastics helped Navistar solve a critical issue.  Not only did Three R Plastics create the required part, but also did it in a short lead-time, while keeping the project to minimal cost.
