Automotive OEM: Seat Component

Seat Component

 

Project Scope:Reduce lubricant consumption & weld defects while not compromising tool-life.

Metal Substrate: HRPO SAE J2340 420XF – 0.075” (1.905mm) THICKNESS

IRMCO Product: IRMCO FLUIDS® 109-00J @ 12:1 dilution ratio (7.7%)

Process Improvements:

  1. IRMCO FLUIDS 109-00J at 12:1 ratio (7.7%) replaced the competitive fluid used at 9:1 ratio (10.0%) – cutting direct fluid consumption by over 20%.
  2. IRMCO process optimization further reduced the amount of fluid required through application equipment to make the parts by 12%.
  3. Press speed was able to be raised 1.5 SPM – increasing production capacity/output over 2000 parts/day.
  4. IRMCO FLUIDS 109-00J provided easier to remove residues – reducing weld spatter & cleaning & finishing defects.
