Quality assurance and traceability

Business situation


A monorail used for transporting cars around an automotive production line continuously needed its gear brushes to be replaced.

By researching this subject, Rubix found that the original supplier was no longer in business and a poorer quality alternative was being used.

Business approach


A sample of an original brush was collected and sent to Morgan AT&T for lab tests.

Rubix was subsequently able to provide a higher specification brush at a lower unit cost.

Outcome / saving

The time and research dedicated by Rubix to finding a solution resulted in reduced acquisition costs as well as a better quality alternative.
