Brandauer’s knowledge in manufacturing precision metal components is compartmentalised into a variety of disciplines, which can be called upon in various levels of consultation for customers looking for business improvement, process development, and product development support.
The Brandauer Innovative Solution Centre (BISC) is a structured approach to consultation with a dedicated hierarchy of tiered and affordable support. A diverse set of in-house skills, necessary to capture a wide variety of potential metal stamping and tooling projects will assist your very specific needs and uncover cost and time savings, engineering efficiencies and process optimisation opportunities.
This support is ideal for businesses looking to get the most out of their requirements for metal parts and for those who understand that seeking and applying expert advice early in the process will ensure every detail is considered, avoiding issues arising after production starts.
Conversely if you are midway through a new product/process launch with inherent problems, Brandauer may be able to help there too.
Three core areas of consultation can be requested under any of the four support tiers and their representative rates.
A UK-based OEM electronics manufacturer requested Director level intervention to conduct a business efficiency review where Brandauer introduced bottleneck resolution tools to eradicate the root cause of Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) degradation.
The 14-day project resulted in a monthly saving of £10,000 for the client.
A UK-based busbar supplier with a key standing in the battery cell supply chain commissioned Brandauer to review and consult on problematic prototype tooling that was causing delays with component delivery.
An in-depth 6-month project resulted in a refined prototype tooling process, designed to stabilise production, and eradicate delays and the emblematic knock-on effects. The customer registered a 77% improvement in OTD, a key performance indicator measuring the rate of finished product and deliveries made in time.
An EU-based E-machine assembler requested a new interconnect component that combined two technologies: IDC and press-fit. A feasibility study and scalable manufacturing solution was defined that offers a tiered part cost profile and a new component concept in just 4 weeks.
Brandauer is targeting over £2m of new opportunities in the rail sector after it launched a new engineering consultancy service.
