When Pressbar Diecasting wanted to improve its production of water inlets for a major vehicle manufacturer in Sweden, it turned to Loctite.
The company was experiencing problems in the application of adhesive. Its existing method was to apply the adhesive direct from the bottle into the casting bores, into which the tubes were then lightly pressed. After cure, all assembled units were tested under water at pressure – and 50% failed due to incorrect adhesive application.
Loctite solved the problem with a semi-automatic application and dispensing system. The effect was immediate. Output rose by some 50% with a consequent reduction in labour needs, and the reject rate dropped to just 0.01%.
