Improving & Customising Off-The-Shelf Components


The extensive range and availability of off the shelf components and assemblies in manufacturing, greatly assist  design engineers across a wide range of industries.

However, there can be occasions when these assemblies will require modification to be more suitable for the application, where the supplier may not be willing to modify or cost becomes an issue.

The example below, a laboratory water heater, is an illustration of the type of improvements Bray Plastics can achieve for their customers products on standard bought-in items.

 

 

In this case for a medical application, the original stainless steel water heater reservoir was replaced with a clear PVC reservoir enabling filling and drainage with no dismantling and open view of the float, heater and water level within the reservoir. Greatly improving the function and user interface for the operator.

 

 

This example is typical of Bray Plastics’ expertise in helping its customers find solutions to tricky and awkward problems that could have potentially delayed their product development.

Please call us, we may be able to help.

 

Reviewing and/or re-designing your own product is a difficult task, particularly if you have been closely associated with it.

This was the dilemma ProEconomy faced with their ‘Orca’ water treatment station for Legionella control. Orca was a successful and proven system that required updating for engineering, servicing and customer interface.

ProEconomy approached Bray Plastics for advice and options. After we reviewed the requirement, Bray re-engineered the layout and mounting base, added graphics and generally repackaged an already very effective product.

Using our skills in design, plastic machining, fabrication, vacuum forming and assembly we worked closely with ProEconomy staff to quickly achieve a highly commercial product.

Our client was delighted with the final results and has already re-ordered due to favourable customer response.
