Injection Works acquires FLIR Thermal Imaging Camera to advance a variety of predictive and diagnostic capabilities. Exceeding typical industry standards related to technology-based Quality, Production, Tooling and Maintenance data collection, Injection Works has added a new Thermal Imaging Camera to our already impressive toolbox. Deployment of this camera allows us to identify and respond to potential hidden, sub-surface characteristics of assets and products before they grow into larger challenges. The ability to “see” capability inhibitors within molds, machine components, and even molded parts helps our team maintain and even enhance Injection Works’ traditionally high levels of quality and on-time delivery performance.
Reducing the average cost of freight can be a significant way to enhance the value proposition we offer our clients. Providing more comprehensive shipment status information to customers can also be pivotal for our clients that have extremely time-sensitive logistics demands. Injection Works’ installation of UPS’ new Quantum View Notify software allows us to deliver both. With Quantum View Notify, Injection Works now offers clients the option of being automatically notified of key events that take place during each shipment cycle. Email notifications of package status can be broadcast to up to five customer-recipients, as frequently as every hour, depending on customer preferences. Accessing UPS Ground with Freight Pricing typically results in a 15-25% cost savings when compared with standard UPS Ground freight prices. With over half of Injection Works’ customers depending on UPS for their shipping needs, we expect Quantum View Notify will result in meaningful savings that will have a direct benefit to our customers.
