Description of the case

Customer supplied an OEM Replacement part print in German of a product that was no longer available for their machinery. Fabrication of a new hopper was offered using Hardox for longer wear-life, also redesigned to allow for a quick and easy direct bolt together application for less down time. Supplied print required far more fabrication that was eliminated during redesign that allowed for large savings to the customer.
