Product spotlight:

Sebastien is an existing Toolless customer and designed a unique body testing device held by a metal chassis for his niche market. With no knowledge of plastic enclosure design, he needed a solution to house his machine and was looking for some in-house designers’ expertise in mechanical and engineering to design his product.

At Toolless we came up with a few different concepts and walked him through the process. After going back and forth with several 3D models, Sebastien finally approved the design below. This multi-color plastic housing is made of acrylic and black ABS with a removable top, a handle, a hinged door and a power panel in the back. With over 5 passes silk-screening colors, our design and implementation met all of Bossa Nova Tech's requirements and even more. Upon approval, a prototype was submitted to him in 10 working days.

The prototype needed a few adjustments, and the Sebastien took advantage of our after prototype “no-cost modifications” to run a pre-production of 6 units. He’s very hopeful than the product will take off soon and will definitely use Toolless expertise for future projects he may have.

Sebastien explains his experience with Toolless:

"At Bossa Nova technologies, we have been a Toolless customer for more than 5 years. Their technology is a great fit for our needs because they are able to manufacture complex enclosures for low quantity runs with a limited NRE cost. They can accommodate 50 to 100 production units or even larger.

For our specific product, we needed their technical support to design an enclosure around our pre-made metal chassis with a critical issue: we needed to hide the screws and wanted a multicolor housing; they even came up with the idea of using magnets for our side door.  In our market field, aesthetic is very important, so our logo needed to stand out.  The way they integrated the yellow color into the front panel was very cosmetically pleasing.  Furthermore, we needed the case to be easy to assemble, with the top part removable. Toolless did a great job understanding our needs, and after a few tries of different designs, we approved the final rendering. It took them 10 working days after approval to accomplish the prototype. 

We were very pleased when we received the cover, there were of course some adjustments to be made, but it is also part of their process to absorb the modification at no extra cost. They made another 5 modified enclosures for us within 10 days at no additional cost to us.

We have been using Toolless for 3 other projects and have always been delighted with the quality of their product, their customer service and their responsiveness towards our needs. We are launching our new product now and will definitely use Toolless for any projects we may have in the future.

Sincerely,
Sebastien Breugnot.
CEO at Bossa Nova Technologies

We look forward to making more plastic enclosures for you and from the Toolless family to yours, Happy New Year!

Sincerely,
Brice Benard
