Hurricane™ Provides Cost Savings for Washing Machine

Washer Front

Problem:

Our customer had a project to reduce the material thickness on their wash machine to .025” to allow for weight reduction and a material cost savings.  They were unable to find a screw that would perform consistently without stripping due to the material thickness.

Solution:

Shakeproof worked with our customer to implement the Hurricane™ screw in this application.  The customer found that our Hurricane™ screw had consistent performance with no strip-out issues.

Impact:

Due to the Hurricane™ screw, our customer was able to move forward with the thinner material in their wash machine.  This change resulted in a $100,000 annual savings in material for our customer with no performance or quality issues related to the change.
