Our traditional approach to customer support is to investigate the use of a standard or already existing designs prior to developing a custom solution. Hutchinson has thousands of designs – our catalog captures our “Standard Parts” – we are tooled to produce thousands of other designs which are not standard catalog style solutions.
Many times design requirements can be met through the adjustment of an existing design – possibly by molding in a different compound, or assembling already tooled parts in a new configuration.
Hutchinson has full analytical and CAD capability (including non-linear 3D FEA) as well as proprietary analytical tools to understand the customers’ problem. We have an extensive historical materials database, as well as the ability to compound a new elastomeric material (if the problem requires one). We have tool design capabilities, and do process development to ensure a quality and high repeatability product results. We have extensive in house testing capabilities, and contacts at outside test facilities when needed.
We follow a strict Phase Gate approach to product development to ensure customer requirements are met, and development schedules are met in a reasonable time frame.
