IMAGE INDUSTRIES QUIKLINX CLIP AND GUN
Image Industries discovered an opportunity with a customer for a new solution to a challenge that the customer was facing. The installation of wiring harnesses inside the heavy equipment that the customer was manufacturing was a cumbersome and time consuming process.
The design team at DI collaborated with the engineering team at Image on the development of Image’s new QuikLinx clip design as well as the automated clip gun. Image develops innovative ideas to meet their customers’ needs, but they see value in partnering with DI on their programs that require a high level of mechanical engineering, industrial design, sophistication and complexity.
Image successfully launched the new QuikLinx clip line in the marketplace with the new QuikLInx Autofeed Tool, which has a replaceable cartridge that holds 50 clips for rapid refilling. This new line opened up market opportunities for Image, and it showed their customers how innovative thinking can lead to value, cost savings, and increased durability across an existing product line.
