Project Detail: 

Lake Harbour create a replacement kit for a 50-year-old, out-of-production electrical set, specifically designed for trains. The goal was to ensure a seamless integration without modifying the existing assembly process.

Challenges: 

  • Inconsistent data from samples, drawings, and technical specifications.

  • Mismatched dimensions between samples and drawings.

  • Varied coating information and non-standard material thicknesses.

  • Contradictory component joining techniques.

 

Strategy: 

  • Collaborative solutions with stakeholders.

  • Detailed analysis of the part, focusing on functionality, compatibility, durability, and reliability.

 

Achievements: 

  • Creation of a fully compliant replacement part.

  • A 97% increase in electrode surface contact, enhancing efficiency.

  • Improved manufacturing quality, resulting in a superior finish and extended part lifespan.

  • Successful delivery and installation of the first 100 kits in trains.
