IS Solutions is a company that creates software and designs specialized electronic devices. The production of these devices is then outsourced to companies like ours. 

The client approached us with the design of his flagship product – IC Pen, a system for digitizing data and signatures using digital pens.

Mój główny problem jest taki, że mam za dużo pomysłów. Cubic Inch wybiera najlepsze z nich, testuje i wdraża je na liniach produkcyjnych Unilogo. W dodatku zazwyczaj płacę za mniej niż się spodziewałem. Druk 3D i technologia HP Multi Jet Fusion to magia w formie najczystszej.

Challenge

The IC Solution team was looking for a company that would be able to make housings for IC Pen devices (pen and charging station).

The client had previously used a different technology (Vacuum Casting), but it turned out to be unsuccessful, not precise enough, time-consuming, and expensive. Additionally, IC Solutions wanted a solution that would enable easy ordering of enclosures in the just-in-time model and constantly changing volumes. The final key criterion was the ability to change the design between series as the product continued to evolve and adapt to customer expectations. 

Solution

Thanks to the use of HP Multi Jet Fusion technology and experience in similar projects, we prepared a comprehensive service and responded to all the mentioned needs.

The Cubic Inch design team played a key role, thoroughly familiarizing themselves with the product and the customer’s needs. All changes were thoroughly analyzed internally, and the client’s team received highly refined projects, which significantly relieved the workload of IC Solution specialists. 

HP MJF technology turned out to be an excellent solution for such a specialized device and, thanks to the changes in the design, it allowed for a much lower cost of printed elements.

Results

Design support and a good understanding of the client’s needs allowed us to move the project forward much faster process, and the technology used opened up new sales and investment opportunities for the company.

Cost reduction

Thanks to our service, the client managed to reduce costs on many levels (parts, warehouse costs, design and even assembly of elements).

Business risk reduction

3D printing allowed the customer to order parts according to their exact needs and avoid the risk of freezing their funds.

Faster time-to-market

The parts were delivered in less than 5 business days, which allowed the client to complete orders quickly.

Przyspieszenie procesu produkcji

Szybkie dostawy w czasie 3-5 dni roboczych zmniejszyły przestoje w produkcji i pozwoliły na sprawniejszą realizację zamówień.
