Low-Cost Manufacture

Context

Our client is a leading manufacturer of devices for personal care with a reputation for bringing to market step-change improvements in product performance. Innovia was asked to take a fresh look at routes to manufacture so as to achieve a significant reduction in cost.

Approach

Innovia explored analogies with other high-speed manufacture processes such as paper-making, FMCG and PCB assembly. We analysed the fundamental science of forming, joining and cutting.

Impact

We showed that investment in laser welding and laser marking technology will secure significant long-term competitive advantage.
