Our Newest Product: How this Vending Machine Conversion Saves
What if you could save money by redesigning your process? Here’s a great example of a redesign process of a vending machine:
The original method of manufacturing involved multiple pieces of fabricated steel welded together and then painted. The vending machine was re-designed using only 6 rotationally molded parts. The plastic parts were not only a cost reduction but a quality improvement:
- It will never rust.
- Its cost to manufacture and assemble is lower.
- Many parts were reduced to 6.
- This machine has become lightweight, which translated into reduced shipping costs.
Now foam filled, it has excellent insulation.
From a cost standpoint, the savings came from reducing the number of components, and the elimination of assembly and painting costs. Conversions are made possible for many such products — that can translate into big money savings for you.
