Appliance Door Hinge
Our client is saving more than $250,000 a year since Ajax took over the manufacture of this bottom hinge almost 20 years ago. Our continuous improvements in materials selection, tooling, and production automation have eliminated heat treating, deburring, and manual pin insertion. We achieved fully automated assembly with 0 PPM field failure.
