Unreliable vendor causing line downs and long cycle times?
A globally positioned high-power laser OEM was having quality, delivery and pricing issues with a very unique large surface area precision mirror. The result was frequent line downs, long cycle times and an inability to patch their supply chain and ramp up production.
How did IRD help?
Designed a custom production cell to achieve needed production volume and cycle time.
Invested in unique equipment to ensure quality specifications were met.
Cross-trained employees and hired new technicians for a dedicated manufacturing cell.
We were able to meet the target price and quality while reducing cycle times 800%. IRD Glass is one of only a few qualified suppliers across the globe, and we remain the preferred supplier to this day.
