Cutting-Edge Manufacturing Savings Model – for Grommets

Device Technologies (DTi), a leading manufacturer of wire protection products, will showcase its Manufacturing Savings Model at the Paris Air Show at the Paris-Le Bourget Exhibition Centre from 19-25 June 2023.

The Savings Model was created to demonstrate the lower installed costs and increased productivity that could be achieved using DTi’s Spring-Fast® Grommet Edging instead of the old glued-in grommets.  The fast. finger-pressure-only, no-glue installations save time, and money and contribute to increased efficiency/productivity. Spring-Fast is FAA Approved and EWIS-compliant wire protection.

The model is simple.  It allows manufacturers to enter 2 key data points; Aircraft Produced per Year, and Penetrations per Aircraft.  The model automatically costs and compares the nylon grommet with Spring-Fast.  We use a conservative OEM WRAP/Labor Rate of $130. 

Nick Petri, Managing Director of DTi indicated, This matrix illustrates why Spring-Fast is the best choice for wire protection needs, providing best-in-class performance with 49% install cost savings and 9.5x productivity gains.  Technicians and management alike appreciate the simple fast finger pressure installation”. 

DTi will be at the Paris Air Show demonstrating the model and sharing critical business case histories in aircraft fuselage, seating, avionics, in-flight entertainment, and electrical systems manufacturing applications. Visit them along with their partners at Hanse Aerospace   Hall 2A Stand C286 / J
