A leading medical contract manufacturer was experiencing problems in the production of a pulmonary device housing, resulting in warpage and leading to an unacceptably high reject rate.
Working with PolyOne, the team identified an alternative material that met the all of the demanding requirements of the product. PolyOne then helped in testing the proposed solution and ultimately put it into production.
With PolyOne’s help, the manufacturer was able to realize significant benefits including: increased productivity, improved yield rates, and reduced manufacturing complexity.
These improvements contributed more than $100,000 annually in savings to the manufacturer’s bottom line.
