Lead Time Compression
Reducing lead times is becoming increasingly important for many manufacturers, to bring new products to market faster and to reduce stockholding or delays in existing supply chains.
At OGM, we continuously invest in new and emerging technologies, which help us positively impact lead times in a number of different ways. For example, our additive manufacturing system has been combined with conventional CNC machining techniques to allow us to engineer innovative hybrid tooling.
This can be produced quickly, using standard tool-parts on which custom engineered mould shapes can be constructed, heling to compress lead-times by as much as 50%, without affecting quality or functionality.
