4" Shut off Valve


The Challenge

Reduce cost of the entire assembly.

By working collaboratively with the product design engineers we converted the costly special extrusion and several fabrication steps used for the body to a 1 pc injection molded component. Greatly simplified several parts and eliminated costly stainless steel hardware by leveraging the properties of plastic by developing a “snapfit” method to hold the assembly together through testing and then locking everything together with the final fusion of the outlets.

Lower cost, ease of manufacturing and assembly, and fewer components.
