A large industrial light manufacturer approached Kurt Die Casting with an RFQ for a large heatsink that was part of a commercial LED light. Due to supply chain delays and cost, they decided this should be a program manufactured in the USA. They contacted Kurt to help with re-tooling, better pricing, and improving the design. They were faced with several issues that needed to be solved. The first was a tooling problem. They had a die that was degrading quickly and getting fewer parts than expected, driving up costs and slowing production. The second issue was inventory management. The customer had part-demand peaks and valleys and wanted to order parts weekly from a supplier without warehousing the inventory themselves.
