Custom Foam Systems Ltd. (CFS) is aware that when it comes to customized foam components, businesses require unique products that result from development support and expertise, tailored to addressing individual challenges. The company helps customers get the foam solutions they need with its wide scope of technical knowledge in material, design, tooling, and manufacturing. CFS offers one strong advantage in creating these solutions: a proven Advanced Product Quality Planning process, or APQP.
Cross-functional development and launch program
All the customer has to do is provide a CAD drawing or rendering to the CFS team of APQP experts, who provide a complete range of product-development support services for customized foam. Examples include product design and engineering, prototyping, testing and verification, tooling, and trial production runs. CFS engineers and manufacturing specialists approach all projects with full confidentiality, combining design expertise with quality and cost-effectiveness.
The company embraces APQP as a cross-functional development and launch program that complies with customer specifications on each production run. The CFS team works closely with customers through every phase of the process, from initial concept to product launch of customized foam components. The APQP exercise provides the following benefits:
- collaboration between customer service, purchasing, and production early in the process;
- discovery of all critical product characteristics;
- examination and mitigation of risk factors;
- a forum for open, ongoing communication between CFS and the customer; and
- lower quality cost because of upfront investigation to find and fix problems, resulting in an issue-free launch.
During the design and development phases for customized foam components, CFS applies effort into optimizing function, cost, and quality, using robust, reliable processes to ensure critical characteristics for maximum success. The team is well equipped to solve such challenges as design constraints, part weight, packaging, and safety requirements.
With prototyping and pilot, CFS can validate design and manufacturing processes to meet the client’s needs. The company develops quality and tolerance requirements to ensure standard conformance, while measuring key production targets and reviewing them every day. CFS offers specialized testing labs to validate product performance, with the assistance of industry-specific testing experts.
