Designed for Manufacture

STI was looking for a partner for their Marine Firestop Collar. Germantown Tool had already been audited and selected by STI for another product, so they turned to them again for assistance. The STI and Germantown Tool engineers worked together to optimize their product’s manufacturability and then Germantown Tool designed and build custom rolling equipment and custom assembly equipment. The product required 12 different sizes of parts— from 50mm – 264mm thick.

For this product, traceability of all materials used in the product was also required and Germantown Tool’s ISO 9001:2015 certification and experience with traceability allowed them to meet this need. Additionally, some components were supplied by STI and stocked at Germantown Tool for quick-turn delivery.
