TELLABS FINLAND ASSOCIATES WITH INCAP TO DEVELOP AWARD-WINNING SHEET METAL PRODUCT
Technology Industries of Finland has today granted the Plootu Fennica Sheet Metals Award 2004 for the Tellabs® 8660 edge switch developed by Tellabs Finland in collaboration with the Incap Corporation.
Incap was responsible for the prototype fabrication of the award-winning product and for improving manufacturability. The fabrication costs for the product have been successfully reduced by around 30% compared with traditional manufacturing methods and the time taken for fabricating the product has also been cut considerably.
“This award-winning product is an excellent example of the fruitful co-operation to which we aspire with our customers,” says Incap’s President and CEO Juhani Hanninen. “When Incap, the expert in manufacturing technology, is involved in product development, we can take the factors affecting manufacturability into consideration at a really early stage. This brings about appreciable savings in costs, which directly and positively reflects on the customer’s business operations. And one of the crucial success factors is that we can get the new product into mass production and on to the markets quickly.”
