What do you do when you have a new product that’s ready for commercialization, but can’t make that happen until you have the right fastener?
You turn to BAND-IT.
The Challenge: Combining High Quality and High-Volume Production
BAND-IT was approached by an engineering company that specializes in permanent oilfield monitoring systems for offshore oil and gas companies. They needed a fastening solution for their new reservoir monitoring device, which provides data that helps elevate efficiency of offshore oil recovery. The clamp needed to stay tight and survive at the bottom of the ocean for at least 30 years. Getting the reservoir monitor to market as quickly as possible included finding a provider that could produce clamps in large volumes, in short order.
From Concept to Validation in One Week
BAND-IT design engineering team tackled the problem by recommending testing of already available clamps and concurrent evaluation of potential material compositions. The team sent several BAND-IT fastening solutions to the firm so they could determine which would work to secure the reservoir monitor. Meanwhile, BAND-IT engineers were busy identifying the ideal type of material for the application.
