Appliance Manufacturer – Oven Seal

Challenge:

We worked with our interntional client to take cost out of the assembly of their oven seals. Traditionally these seals are held in place by metal clips that have to be inserted individually. Two people had to be assigned to this single step to ensure it did not hold up the assembly line.

Solution:

Rather than the tradtional clipped approach the EPL development team developed a one piece gasket that could simply be fitted into the existing openings between the separate metal panels of the oven.

Result:

The removal of metal clips cut the material costs of the seal by more than 50%. The EPL solution also lowers labour costs during assembly.
