Sector: Plastics Moulding

Type of part: 5m Auger Screw

Production Type: One off conveyor machine part

Customer Requirement:

A local plastic moulding business had production shutdown after their conveyor system went down. The part required would take weeks to arrive from the manufacturer and that meant a closed production line.

Engineering Solution:

After an initial discussion CBS analysed the broken part, an auger screw. We identified and sized up the required material and ordered in stock. We then set up the tooling to replicate the 5m screw.

Production Solution:

Within days, the conveyor system was back up and running and the customer could get back to production. Taking a 3 week loss of production and reducing it to one.

Current State: Conveyor System up and running with 2 weeks production time saved
