ADA Accessible Planter
Bowling hoods are a very visible feature in a bowling alley and house various moving mechanical parts. Most are manufactured from fiberglass or rotomolded plastic.
The customer wanted a scalable manufacturing process which would allow them produce relatively high quantities at a competitive price. Fiberglass has a high per unit cost and the heavy weight of each part adds to freight costs.
Not only did the client want to convert their product to a rotomolded plastic. They wanted it to have a recognizable feature that would give it brand identity. This can sometimes be achieved with the simplest of design changes. The customer provided a basic sketch from which our designers were able to work from. After creating a few concept sketches the customer was clear in what direction they wanted to go. We manufactured cast aluminum tooling in 8 weeks and a first article for review within 2 days.
