CNC Case Study – Yellow Robot
CNC Machining Prototype & Assembly
PROJECT – produce over 70 individual CNC machined parts in 2 weeks and assemble before shipping the robot and controller to client.
ISSUE – During review of the parts our engineering team discovered that a few parts would interfere with each other during assembly.
SOLUTION – Pointed out issues to client who re-drew the parts before HLH started production.
RESULT – Parts produced, assembled and shipped on-time with no further issues. Client sent Thank You letter.

This was a fun project to work on and an intense one. Between the robot, the controller and a few extra parts this project had over 70 parts. The majority of which had to be assembled together and work together as movable parts.
When you are producing 4 or 5 parts to be assembled together for one finished prototype and the tolerance of a part is off a bit it is not a big crisis as normally that single part can be quickly fixed.
But with over 70 parts and a production time line that was tight, our tolerance needed to be spot on.

The other key point with larger assebled products is donâ€™t be cheap on packaging. Projects are not complete until the client has safely received the shipment and confirmed that everything is OK.
