Automotive Plastic Electronic Module
A manufacturer of automotive plastic electronic modules was experiencing installation problems with a competitor’s Insert, as well as insufficient performance of the Insert during assembly of the mating component. Each time an Insert was installed incorrectly the assembly had to be discarded. Assemblies were also scrapped if the Insert rotated in the plastic while tightening the screw used to fasten the assembly together. The plastic housing is comprised of 30% glass filled Nylon, and there are four Inserts, one in each corner, per housing.
