Former TWI Industrial Member, BS&B Safety Systems Ltd benefited from using the resources and expertise of TWI's design advisory service. BS&B asked TWI to perform a complete assessment of its manufacturing processes to identify potential problem areas and general improvements.
BS&B designs and manufactures safety heads and rupture disk units for a wide range of industries. These units contain thin membranes (bursting disks) of various materials, seal welded into the body of the device. TWI engineers visited the Limerick-based plant to carry out a technical assessment of welding and assembly methods. Preliminary investigations revealed that the welding processes in use were acceptable, but that manufacturing processes could be enhanced.
TWI performed a complete audit of the processes in accordance with BS&B's and it's customers' stringent QC/QA requirements. TWI also looked at advanced welding methods for future products. New projects have emerged to prove and improve manufacturing systems and processes.
