A west coast weapons manufacturer is relocating it’s operations to North Carolina. The customer had a requirement to outsource hand guards for it’s match-quality AR rifle but they did not have any drawings of the part.
Alotech used its 3-D scanner to capture every detail of a sample hand guard, with a precision of less than 1/1000 of an inch. This 3-D file was then used to correct some issues with the original manufacture, then the data was exported to an Alotech CNC machine where the parts are produced.
The customer enjoyed considerable savings by not having to use the original west coast supplier and has also seen an improvement in quality. Zero defects with Just-in-Time delivery!
