Traditional log burner turns electric
A leading manufacturer of range cookers in the UK approached DKM with the intention of expanding their dominant presence in the UK market with the introduction of an electric heater. Although, they have concept of what the finished article would be like; the task was to turn these ideas into a manufacturable product at a competitive price.
Automation was Key
The timeline moved extremely quickly; within the space of a few weeks the product moved from an initial concept to prototype to weekly production. Volumes began as 20 units per month and within six weeks volumes grew to 30 units per week. In order to maintain this level of productivity design to manufacture was key. All parts associated with this product were designed for a production line environment because of the potential this product has. With the addition of our Amada Ensis 3015 laser as well as the latest automated technologies DKM have been recognised as a crucial part of the support arm in the supply chain
Replicating premium quality in a higher volume market
With the success of this new product, new designs are already underway for new variations and planning for exporting to European and Worldwide markets is already underway.
