SOLUTION PROVIDER HELP DESK:
NineSigma, representing Bjerrum Nielsen A/S, is seeking to find alternative solutions for the semi-automated fixation process of fabrics to various substrate materials such as plastic, wood and metal.
NineSigma’s client, Bjerrum Nielsen A/S is a leading company in the field of industrial wet paint and surface treatment of substrates such as plastic, wood, metals. One of the core activities of Bjerrum Nielsen is the mounting of fabrics on frames. These frames can be made of metal, wood (e.g. MDF) or plastics (e.g. ABS). The frames are used in applications such as furniture, loudspeakers or other acoustic solutions.
Currently, Bjerrum Nielsen are using a semi-automated mounting process comprising 3 phases:
Bjerrum Nielsen is looking for alternative solutions for the fixation of fabrics to different materials such as plastic, wood and metal. Primarily, they are looking for a material that can serve as an alternative double-sided adhesive. Secondly, in the ideal case, the application of the adhesive, the stretching of the fabric, and the welding of the adhesive should be fully automated.
Bjerrum Nielsen is open for a complete solution, but partial solutions are appreciated as well.
Anticipated Project Phases
