Bax Metaal Case Study
Based in the Netherlands, Bax Metaal is at the forefront in technologies that enable them to produce custom solutions in composite sheet metal and tubular constructions.
When they needed components to produce frames for a newly developed bed range, Essentra Components supported them to beat tight deadlines in order to deliver on their customer’s brief.
CUSTOMER - Bax Metaal
INDUSTRY - Metal fabrication
PROJECT - Furniture solutions
SOLUTION - Threaded insert, adjustable foot and bumper
Bax Metaal’s reputation for quality, reliability and speed means they have to achieve the very highest standards in the shortest amount of time.
Tasked with creating frames for a new box spring bed, they needed to efficiently procure levelling feet with a plastic insert and bumper for an all-round cost-effective solution.
With a well-established local relationship already in place, Bax Metaal turned to Essentra Components for support and expertise, supplying them with drawings from the bed manufacturer’s R&D department.
After extensive discussions, Essentra Components provided free samples to support the assembly of the prototypes.
With Bax Metaal’s tight deadline in mind, Essentra Components identified standard solutions from the product range: a threaded insert, an adjustable foot and a bumper with required hardness and specific dimensions.
This would provide Bax Metaal with the perfect solution within their timeframe, without additional expense.
Essentra’s ongoing relationship with Bax Metaal helped produce the ideal solution within demanding time constraints:
- Controlled budget: They saved on assembly costs with the threaded insert, adjustable foot and bumper delivered pre-mounted as one item.
- Assembly time saving: The pre-mounted solution saved Bax Metaal a total of 425 hours in assembly time, allowing labour to be redirected for other tasks.
- Productivity: The efficiency that resulted from the pre-mounted solution meant that Bax Metaal workers completed the bed frame assembly faster. From the initial discussion, the first beds appeared in showrooms 10-12 weeks later.
