BULL METAL PRODUCTS answers “the call”…our customer’s call for a custom fabricated industrial cart designed for a particular use.
Meyer Gage in South Windsor, CT (http://www.meyergage.com/company/), manufacturers of pin gages and related precision inspection products, had been thinking about the concept of a mobile, quality inspection center for a number of years. They had considered some of the standard industrial carts on the market, but were not able to find one that satisfied their requirements.
Meyer places “the call” to Bull
Bull Metal Products has been manufacturing Meyer Gage’s custom 4 drawer pin kit library cabinets for over 10 years, so it was only natural for James Meyer to contact us when he was ready to bring the mobile quality inspection center to life. He was fully aware of our custom fabrication capabilities working with sheet metal, rigid wire, and light gage tubing.
Bull answers “the call”
After several meetings (including the classic napkin sketch), enough information was gathered to make a prototype for hands-on evaluation, and limited test market presentations. Several requirements were critical to Meyer Gage; 1) it must hold a minimum of 2 Meyer Gage Pin Kit Library cabinets. 2) the carts had to safely carry up to 250 lbs, 3) the foot print had to be minimized to allow the cart to get close to work centers, 4) it must be stable when in motion, 5) it must have a work surface and tool storage tray.
Bull designs and fabricates the cart.
After several modifications to the initial sample, Bull Metal Products had satisfied our customer’s requirements, and the 1st production order was placed. Meyer Gage is very pleased with the end product and the whole process from Sales, Design & Engineering, Sampling, to the delivery of the initial production parts.
