03 Jul 1000 brackets, one fibre laser cutter
Adapting an existing design can be cost-effective with some simple engineering and swift manufacturing, and small brackets like this one can be perfect for such like jobs.
The bracket was programmed to allow the fitting hole and hook to fall through the laser cutter slat bed, while retaining the main bracket piece in place for easier post-cutting production. Nifty design by the CAD engineers, considering the bracket is similar size to a 10p piece.
Of course, a few cheeky ones popped out, but in the main, the majority stayed in place.
The parts were then ready for the factory production team to quality assess and send to the paint floor for a powder coat of black before being bagged into 100s and dispatched to the customer.
