Polycarbonate Doors for Wheelchair Lifts Require Costly Labor and Multiple Vendors

Curbell provides single solution for screen printed doors fabricated on state-of-the-art CNC routers

Wheelchair Lift Manufacturer Reduces Costs, Damaged Parts with Single Source Polycarbonate Supplier (Case Study at Curbell Plastics)A manufacturer of wheelchair lifts was cutting polycarbonate doors from sheet stock using a table saw, finishing the edges with a hand router, and then sending the doors to a printer for screen printing. The multiple manufacturing processes and multiple shipments resulted in high labor costs, scratched and damaged parts, and excessive freight costs.

Reduced Freight Costs and Damage During Shipping

The production manager contacted a Curbell salesperson to investigate ways to reduce freight and labor costs and eliminate yield loss from damage during shipping and handling.

Curbell was able to provide the manufacturer with finished doors that were fabricated on our state-of-the-art CNC routers and screen printed with the required graphics.
