Challenge

One all-rounder, please!

A multiple manifold for variable corrugated tube sizes


 

Schlemmer was confronted with a complex customer request: a multiple manifold to accommodate three different sizes of corrugated tube per connection.

 

Solution

Think outside the box by looking over the rim of a tea cup


 

A solution approach was found owing to the observation of a saucer.

This had various rings stamped into it so that three sizes of cup could fit on it. This idea was taken up, transferred to the Schlemmer manifold and implemented in a product solution.

 

Result

Successful with diversity.


A reduction in the customer’s wide range of variations enabled significant cost savings.
