Seeking improvements to the wear life and production output of a component used to manufacture computer printer cartridges, a leading computer printer OEM turned to Oberg for a solution.

Working closely with this customer’s design group, Oberg engineers drew on their extensive experience working with advanced alloys, unique composite materials and innovative production methods to develop a wear component assembly that could withstand extreme operating pressures and stresses.

The Results

The final combination of modified designs, material selection and a stable, repeatable manufacturing process improved production efficiencies and wear life gains, doubling production output and cutting costs by 40% on the new component assembly.

Project Overview

  • Processes: Precision Grinding, Lapping, Machining
  • Challenge: Improve the wear life of a printer component
  • Solution: Oberg’s expertise in working with diverse metals and alloys produced long-life component performance
