The problem that we worked with our client to solve focuses on the production of modular weld tables. The design for the weld table was already completed at the time we took on our project. The problem was that assembly of the table took far too long to be feasible for a production run of multiple units. Lack of proper fixturing would also lead to variance in the tolerances of each unit produced.
