MTRís problem-solving capabilities are
demonstrated by our flux-gate compass production. A custom avionics
manufacturer was experiencing high fallout and low yields due to severe
quality problems at their previous manufacturer. After bringing
their flux-gate compass detecting units to MTR, we conducted extensive
research regarding the product and the processes used in producing it.
research, a solution was devised redesigning the critical
manufacturing processes. These included tooling which MTR is capable of
producing in-house. Our extensive metallurgy experience, cutting-edge
production capability and attention to detail resulted in an immediate
yield improvement. (Approaching 100%.) Our willingness to work on the
problem created a strong trust relationship with our customer. In
addition, by eliminating productivity losses resulting from poor yields
we were able to offer them significant cost-savings.
Another example of our
problem-solving capabilities is demonstrated in the production of the
railroad crossing gate lights. The customerís existing product required
highly-skilled labor for installation and they were seeking a railroad
crossing gate light that could be easily installed at no premium cost.
Normally achieving this flexibility would have required modification of
the whole unit - a very costly proposition. Instead MTR Technologies
designed and manufactured a superior light easily installed with
In each of these examples,
MTR successfully met all customer goals: quality, tooling, production
scheduling and cost.
