About This Project

As part of a larger manufacturing engineering project to develop a partially automated cut, sew and wrap line for BMW center consoles, our engineer designed a fixture that would align the seams of the leather against the edge of the plastic center console during the gluing process. Using one of our 3D printers, he built a small sample of the fixture overnight to demonstrate its function to his customer, and got approval to have the larger aluminum version made that same day, keeping the project on schedule.
