This project is a perfect case study for successfully implementing a redesign proposal in volume production. Intensa was contracted by TB&C Outsert Center and made responsible for product design, prototyping, tooling and subsequent volume production of this guide plate assembly ultimately manufactured for Océ Technologies, Venlo/The Netherlands.
The outsert assembly consists of 3 outsert (overmolded) steel plates and belongs to paper size selector unit in copy machines.
After thorough analysis of the previous design and its many parts, Intensa came up with an attractive redesign proposal that led to substantial cost savings. Those cost savings were realized by eliminating components and its assembly processes by successful integration of various functions into one single multi-functional outsert component.
