The previous generation part was a weldment that had similar form but a significant number of parts that were difficult to fixture together.
It also was susceptible to warpage and corrosion where stiffener plates overlapped existing surfaces.
The original weldment contained no less than 17 distinct pieces.
The customer reported that the new cleaner, simplified casting design provided a 43% reduction in cost over the original weldments.
The casting simplifies the fabrication significantly without the need for highly skilled labor, namely qualified welders, resulting in improved lead times and reduced delays and fabrication bottlenecks during labor shortages.
