Design and Build of Quality Check Fixtures for Toyota Camry

Venture Plastics, a “Best in Class” supplier, has been supplying custom injection molding services since 1969.  They have two modern facilities located in Newton Falls, Ohio and El Paso, Texas.  Venture Plastics contracted Northern Lights Solutions (NLS) to provide design and manufacturing services in creating three new production quality check fixtures for their new 2018 Toyota Camry Injection Molding program.

The production of an new vehicle takes hundreds of suppliers working together creating the best new part that is assembled into a complete automobile.  Only the best parts can be accepted and check fixtures are used in manufacturing facilities to confirm that only the best products are produced and shipped to Toyota.

OTG has a long history of developing plastic parts, molds and test fixtures so were were very excited to be part of the program.  Our quality department lead the program in a close partnership with Venture Plastics.  Designing check fixtures to confirm plastic part quality is all about understanding the functional requirements for the parts and turning that into inspection points that ensure the good parts made.
