Key success factors

Easier installation (weight, welding, etc.)

Fit-up and assembly time has been reduced with the 1-piece design.

Improved design

Part now has a more uniform and consistent profile with the 1-piece design.

Improved supply

Time saved in welding / assembly has reduced the overall lead time.

Increased crack resistance

In this part, cracks were most likely to occur at the weld seams. The elimination of these seams has reduced this chance.

Lower initial cost

By eliminating weld seams, the initial manufacturing cost has been reduced.

Lower lifetime costs

Part is less likely to break due to the elimination of weld seams.
