REFRIGERATOR HANDLE
problem
Original design used M 5 x 14 machine screws with lockwashers. Cross-threading occurred quite often and the lockwasher did not effectively keep handles tight.
solution
Use of k-tite M 5 x 14 thread rolling screws directly into the cored holes of the die cast handles. Cross-threading was eliminated. The need for the sems lockwasher was eliminated.
customer
benefit

Reduced in-place cost due to...

  • Elimination of the tapping operation
  • Elimination of the lockwasher
  • No more Cross-threading
 
RELAY VALVE ASSEMBLY
 
 
problem
High cost of tapping the 4 holes in the "high pressure" aluminum die cast body and the high cost of efficiently cleaning out the chips cause by tapping.
solution
Using k-tite M 5 x 20 thread rolling screws eliminated tapping of the holes.
customer
benefit
In-place cost savings was lowered due to elimination of the need to tap the holes.
