Success Stories

Construction Success Story

Primary Markets Served: Construction

Product:  Roll Grover Value Assembly Project

Function:  This machine cold-forms the clamp groove in 2” to 24” schedule 40 thru 80 piping used in large piping projects.

Problem: The customer had previously contracted with one of our competitors to manufacture and build this machine. That supplier had many quality and delivery issues, causing the customer to lose business to the competition.

Contour Solution: Contour developed processes to manufacture many of the parts in-house, a supply chain to supply other components, a system to manage inventory, and detailed work instructions to build the machine. We now ship the completed and packaged machine direct to the customer’s distribution center, ready for shipment to the end user. Our customer never sees the machine.

Takeaway: Whether it be the machining of hard-to-hold parts, the management of inventory, or the assembly and packaging of product, Contour has the depth and skill to tackle your project.

Aerospace Success Story

Primary Markets Served:  Aerospace

Aerospace Precision Machining and AssemblyAerospace Precisin Machining

Product:  Fuel System Flame Arrestor

Function:  Prevents flames from traveling thru the fuel system to the fuel tank.

Problem:  A Tier 1 supplier to the aerospace industry was looking for a source to manufacture this flame arrestor.  Due to the tight tolerances involved on the delicate component, and the unusual assembly involved many manufacturers either declined or were unable to manufacture the component.

Contour Solution:  Contour’s team of engineers and machinists were able to value engineer this component keeping the mission critical tolerances intact, yet improving manufacturability.  The newly engineered design maintained the extremely high tolerance demands, and took cost out of the manufacturability of the product, thus creating a win-win scenario.

Takeaway:  This flame arrestor component is responsible for keeping 1000’s of air-passengers safe daily.  The Tier 1 supplier chose Contour to value engineer and manufacture this product because of Contour’s unsurpassed excellence in precision milling and machining.  When lives are at risk, major suppliers turn to Contour to manufacture what is needed.
