Washing Bowl Innovation
In June 1999, Form Cut solved Quality Non-Conformance's within Electrolux, Form Cut inspected, designed and manufactured an alternative high volume production component delivering numerous long term benefits to Electrolux. Form Cut enjoyed 7 years of being recognised as Electrolux’s highest level quality supplier delivering in excess of 5,000,000 production units without a reject.
Scope - To eliminate catalytic corrosion occurring between the washing machine’s alloy drive hub and stainless
Outcome - Following Form Cut’s inspection, it was determined that capillary action in a moist environment,
effectively connecting both dissimilar metals, presented as the significant contributor to this problem.
By recommending an alternative material and adopting minor design changes to the component, Form Cut was able to repeatedly deliver cut items without one single quality reject.
Another benefit was that the new material offered Electrolux a significant direct cost reduction per item of 77%.
