High Visibility Cold Weather Edge-lite Pictogram

Responsibility- Mechanical Design and Development

Handeled technical aspects , which involves conception, prototyping, conducting DFMEA design reviews, CSA/UL testing, MRO oversight, and final release.


Lamp Head Modification

Issue: Tolerance Problem - Loose Lamp

Situation: Encountered a tolerance issue affecting lamp fitting with EAU of 90000.

Actions Taken:

  • Implemented a quick temporary solution to maintain production continuity.

  • Adjusted tolerance through mold modifications for forthcoming batches.

  • Developed a permanent, long-term solution by planning to modify lamp head fixture, eliminating the circular spring and incorporating a snap-fit feature.

    Results: Anticipated benefits include reduced labor costs, reduced assembling duration (by 2 minutes per fixture), elimination of spring expenses, and removal of the need for jigs to install spring.

Cost reduction for Inverter (Battery) Cabinet- CSA Standards

  • Minimum allowable thickness-  As per the CSA standards, the minimum allowable thickness is 0.040 inch (19 MSG) and current cabinet A has already 0.040 inch of thickness. Hence, no change suggested.

  • For the Ventilation louvers- Considering available dies for Louvers in GFI list, 12 Louvres of #15750 (0.188 inch X 0.700 inch) can be replaced by 5 Louvres of #15820 (0.188 inch X 1.600 inch). Consult with GFI for the newly available dies for the Louvers.

  • Design change suggestion- 2 holes one on each side of Cabinet A and Cover A can be replaced by the single hole at the top as mentioned in the Report.
