TekRex Case Study: Fiber Optic Connector Holder
A test and measurement company needed help redesigning a fiber optic connector holder. TekRex produced a part made of RoHS compliant material and was designed in a way that ensured consistency and quality.
Welcome to another installment in TekRex’s case studies video series. Here at TekRex, our focus on our clients’ success has led to some remarkable solutions, some of which we’ll dive into here.
This case study comes to us from a test and measurement company that needed help redesigning a fiber optic connector holder. Their design used a 3D printed part and a helicoil. The problem with their design was that the helicoils were not being inserted in a repeatable manner and the 3D printed material was not RoHS compliant.
Watch the video below to see our Design and Engineering services in action.
TekRex took advantage of Carbon’s M2 printer and their line of RoHS compliant resins when making changes to the client’s high-level design. The M2’s level of precision mean that we could design and print threads directly into the part and eliminate the need for helicoils.
TekRex produced a part that checked every box for the client. The new part met the material requirements and was designed in a way that ensured consistency and quality.
