GLE implements manufacturing changes

Earlier this year, GLE received a report from a customer’s facility in which workers were cutting themselves (fingers/hands) on the sharp ID of a round gage.  The engineers at GLE quickly responded to the incident reports and received approval to change the design of the gage to include a radius on the ID versus the sharp edge.

After halting production and rerouting the jobs to include the extra operation, parts shipped to the customer in a timely manner with the radius.

Upon a follow up with the facility, the customer was happy to report, “the gages are great.  The change on the ID no longer snags on the finger, causing a cut.”
