Example of cost reduction
Eliminating a fittings stack.
An agricultural machine produced at a rate of 300 units per year.
At present a 4-fitting-stack which, from a main 22L flow, gives the possibility of 2 15L connections. The present solution includes the assembly of an swivel run Tee 22L , a 22L / 15L reducing adapter, a 15L swivel elbow and finally a 15L swivel branch tee . This function costs 21€ (cost of different fittings + assembly).
RH offers a replacement, just one fitting for 9.50€ (plus assembly at around 3€) which means a 40% cost reduction and a simpler, more reliable assembly.
