Ecoegg a household products company, approached BEC Group to resolve difficulties with its five part ‘dryer-egg’. Difficulties included complex production processes creating poor consistency and quality. The brief included the enhancement of its proven and unique helix spiked design.
BEC designed, developed, manufactured and tested a new TPE product solution utilising a single part design to automate the final production of the part and improve functionality for the consumer. This process resulted in a complete re-design of the injection mould tool, which involved a hybrid approach of traditional toolmaking and Direct Metal Laser Sintering for the production of the complex cores. The outcomes were:
• Reduced tooling lead times
• Improved cooling lines in the printed cores allowing reduced cycle times
• Improved quality and resistance
• Improved capacity
• Reduction in costs
The result: the first fully automated production mould tool.
