After having met representatives from FJ Industries at an industry conference, the customer approached us to see how we could help them reduce costs. We delivered 10 test examples of the required component and they worked perfectly. Soon after we made a deal and began producing and supplying the company with sintered components.
A remarkable advantage of our efficient production methods is that the customer will save money even when production volumes are low. The first year of collaboration with this particular customer we delivered just 200 units. This later grew to 2000 units; however, even from the beginning, the per-unit cost was extremely competitive.
The same senior engineer explains that, “it is important for us that the production costs can be kept down. And the price did play a big role when we decided to change to powdered metal”. He continues that, “we came to the conclusion that powdered metal ensures a more rational production than the traditional methods and we plan to use more sintered components in the future”.
