Some of the highlights are:
In 1994 a high volume automotive customer realized a 13% cost reduction on a mature product after approving a Tro design and process change.
In 1996 a clean sheet design we participated in saved almost 20% up front based upon Tro material suggestions.
In 1996, less than 6 weeks before product launch, a Chrysler crash test on a production part from a just completed production tool revealed a potential engine compartment interference that required a completely different part design. Working with our customer, Tro's engineers helped design a new part, and then, literally working around the clock we designed, built and sampled a complete progressive die in time to meet the product launch.
In 1997 a Japanese transplant brake and suspension manufacturer chose Tro to produce 6 of the 9 major stampings for a brand new product in a brand new market while meeting extreme cost requirements.
In 1998 Tro simultaneously Prototyped, designed and built parts and tooling for 11 of 17 major stampings on 3 new projects. The original customer time line was for 3 years to complete these projects. That timeline changed, and Tro completed these projects in under a year.
Recently, an innovative transfer tool design involving a part turnover station allowed a new customer to realize a 40% price discount on a high volume part that had been running at another supplier.
