Orthotic and Prosthetic Fabrication Lab Struggled With Inconsistent Polypropylene

Blanket order program supplied single source materials and reduced scrap rates

An orthotic and prosthetic fabrication lab was struggling with inconsistent polypropylene sheet. The lab was buying polypropylene from a distributor who stocked plastics manufactured by several different sheet extruders.

Each manufacturer’s sheet had slightly different forming characteristics and this resulted in inconsistent products and high scrap rates for the lab.
