plastic routing

In recent years, Weber Aircraft has faced a tremendous downward pressure on price in the airline industry. In order to remain competitive, Weber set objectives to drastically reduce costs. However, they did not want to lose their excellent reputation for product quality and customer satisfaction that had taken more than 60 years to build. While strongly adhering to the principles of lean manufacturing, Weber pursued their goal of reducing operating costs. One immediate problem facing Weber was the inability of the current routing equipment to keep up with production requirements. The demand for plastic food trays for commercial aircraft seats had far exceeded the capacity of the single routing machine currently in use at Weber. Weber was faced with the decision whether to buy a second machine that was identical to the one they already had, or search for a different routing machine that may be better suited for their particular product. Weber opted to search for a different routing machine since the existing equipment was very oversized for their needs. After a fruitless search of traditional off-the-shelf routing machines and repeated unwillingness of commercial vendors to customize a machine for them, Weber Aircraft contacted the Texas Manufacturing Assistance Center (TMAC), a NIST MEP network affiliate, with the request to help them find a "right-sized" routing machine for producing plastic food trays for commercial aircraft.
