Plastic injection moulding order pin

Mail at your door – simple and convenient

Success Story

Starting point:

400,000 Swiss households now conduct their postal business conveniently at the front door with Swiss Post’s home service. You would like to further expand and facilitate this service. Digitally savvy customers can place their orders by smartphone or PC. In turn, customers who do not want digital services can use the order pen. This is not connected to the Internet, but it is highly innovative. With this choice, Swiss Post wants to respond to different customer needs.

Challenge:

Our main task was to technically implement an existing and specified housing design using plastic injection moulding. In addition, the very short time to market of just a few months was a major challenge.

Solution:

When we received more information about the final product after the kick-off meeting, it was clear to us that we could offer more than “just” manufacturing plastic injection-moulded parts. In addition to the injection-moulded housing itself, the housing had to be printed, the delivered electronics had to be assembled, the serial number and label had to be affixed, the function of the electronics had to be tested and finally the product had to be packaged.

Miromico was enthusiastic about our overall concept. The advantages were clear to them. They had only one contact person for the project. No tedious shipping to additional suppliers, which massively reduced turnaround time. In addition, by taking responsibility for the entire process, we were able to make further optimisations and thus reduce assembly time and costs. It was a win-win situation for all parties involved and so we were awarded the contract for the implementation. To facilitate the handling of the mail, we produced a suitable mass packagingsystem.

For series production, we developed a lean assembly workstation, which reduced assembly and lead time. This enabled us to deliver the large quantities on time. In addition, the assembly worker is supported by a collaborative robot.
