The design of a prototype foaming jig
Our team was assigned to design, prepare and test a low-cost prototype foaming jig that can be quickly produced.
In case of a prototype beverage cooler cabinet the form may change, therefore, there is no point producing an expensive aluminium supporting core and foaming jig at first.
We have designed a prototype consisting of worked and precisely connecting wooden elements and an exterior, welded and bolted steel frame. We supported the design process with finite element stress analyses, because the tool had to withstand a 2 bar inner pressure.
A heavy duty, but simple design, inexpensive tool.
A wooden, machined, glued and screwed construction, reinforced at the adequate points both on the outside and the inside, and the insertion of a ‘flying’ insert at the undercut area.
We have been using the pneumatically controlled foaming jig designed by CAD-CAM 3000 Ltd. for more than one and a half years for the manufacture of our 70 l and 90 l absorption chillers.
Since then, we have not had any scraps, shutdowns or accidents. What else can I say? This tells everything.Kiss Zoltán Head of Technology - DOMETIC Zrt.
Together with CAD-CAM 3000, we worked on the prototype of such a device which was a modified version of an already existing product. As the first step, we shared our broad ideas with CAD-CAM 3000, with regard to the desired functionalities and performance. As the second step, we specified those components which required modification. CAD-CAM 3000 arranged for the modifications of the already existing drawings on the basis of the instructions and they also optimized the new shapes for the best aesthetic outcome. They perfectionized this re-design with regard to the fabrication of the new components, displaying considerable knowledge.Corrado Cecchini Thermal Insulation Manager - Global Technology Food Preservation, Electrolux
It was easy to get in touch with them, in order to discuss and check up on their suggestions, and we also managed to complete the task in time. They travelled personally to Italy, in order to discuss the most challenging items and to assemble the prototype. We were satisfied with their assistance and we will count on them in our future projects, too.
We cooperated in various projects with the team. Although the construction industry is not the main area of CAD-CAM 3000, they were brilliant at understanding our difficulties and challenges, and they had excellent ideas during their contribution.Dr. Toldy Gábor Chief Operating and Production Officer - Baumetall Design Kft.
We coopreate with CAD-CAM 3000 since 2014. The technical know-how, skills and willpower of the team has enabled them to get acquainted with this concrete field of the industry as fast as possible. Their software knowledge is excellent and it is extremely easy to plan the projects with their help. The communication between our participating colleagues and the team of CAD-CAM 3000 is as efficient as possible at all times. Due to the weekly meetings, project planning is a walk in the park.Kubicsek Károly Project leader - Knaus Tabbert Kft.
