Removing Obstacles and Reducing Risk

“The One-Stop Shop”

HARBEC has evolved to be a one-stop manufacturing solutions provider. We’ve done this to remove obstacles and reduce unnecessary risk for our customers.

The best way to control the quality, performance, price, and longevity of precision parts and components is to integrate all capabilities for part manufacturing under one roof. This model pushes risk to the manufacturer, which is mitigated by providing customers with differentiated values such as:

 

  1. Personal and facilitated process: Save time and cost by having the manufacturer proactively manage the full  process. This results in time savings, precise schedules, shorter lead-times, and faster cycle times.
  1. Manufacturing cost savings: by managing the full manufacturing queue; Take out unnecessary administrative costs and reduce the risk of cost overruns associated with multiple suppliers.
  1. Range of manufacturing options: Finding experts in both prototyping and production will provide  the best solutions to meet tolerance and quality goals for the full project.
  1. Integrated services and solutions: Incorporating “ad-ins” such as “moldflow analysis” on all production tool purchases, is a benefit. Many molders price such services out separately. Incorporation of software tools like SolidWorks Plastics enables the “one-stop shop” to reduce tool prices because toolmakers can more accurately predict tool performance. These solutions also provide a reduction of waste, time, and materials – resulting in higher performing and more sustainable manufacturing processes.
  1. No surprises and guaranteed value: Consistency through one quote, one price, and  guaranteed tool, part quality and performance is found under one roof. At HARBEC there are no surprises along the way. HARBEC guarantees our tool performance and part quality which also translates into guarantees on price and delivery.

 

To achieve lower risk for its customer HARBEC provides a range of options and simple solutions spanning the quoting process, part/product design, manufacturing, and value-added solutions.

One-stop-shop

Reducing manufacturing risks are essential to achieving business growth and success. Although having a large number of suppliers is a way to diversify and mitigate risk, it is not necessarily the best solution for every product. The reliance and management of multiple suppliers can actually add cost and create unpredictable outcomes and unnecessary risks. Every manufacturing requirement and situation is different, and HARBEC has evolved to “right size” the solution(s) to your need(s).

Introducing Cleanroom Capabilities

Proper cleanroom suitability—an environment where air cleanliness is carefully controlled—is crucial to a number of industries and applications. Its primary purpose is to produce parts in a controlled environment, minimizing the airborne particles within that room by use of filters. A cleanroom controls the amount of microbes and bacteria by filtering the air through a HEPA filter, which pressurizes the room and removes 99.9% of all particles—an extremely important factor in applications for which cleanliness is integral.

At Harbec Inc., we are excited to now offer the services of our portable ISO class 8 cleanroom. This capability, a modular device that can be customized to fit any application and built on to adapt to any project, will offer much potential to our clients. It goes over the molding machine, encompassing the molding area, making it as easy to use and cost efficient as it is effective. Its adaptability to fit molding machine means the possibilities are endless.cleanroom

In the past, we received many requests from our customers for this capability.  We now realize that as more and more industries have cleanroom requirements—from healthcare to electronics and others—our new cleanroom will help many of our customers meet their needs. Beyond the standard offerings, we can also do labeling and packaging right inside the cleanroom.

As part of our commitment to provide the best services, we have dedicated personnel trained specifically for this cleanroom. We do daily monitoring of the air particles inside the cleanroom as well as weekly monitoring of the filters and equipment.

Those who have worked with us for years know the importance we place on quality and service, and this new offering will be no different.
