Developing patentable features for custom cylinder solutions
JARP was approached by a current customer who wanted to involve the JARP team in a new product release. This was a product line expansion, which would also be the largest machine in its class in the marketplace. JARP was asked to help with functionality and serviceability improvements, as these would become critical with such a large machine. The JARP team, working closely with the customer was able to offer a patentable feature into the cylinder to meet the product's goals. Also, the final design incorporated integrated relief valves and other features to allow for ease of assembly and minimal hose connections.
The initial prototypes have significant hours logged on them with zero issues. Production cylinders have also been shipped with zero revisions to the initial design, which is a testament to the attention to detail and collaborative effort of both parties.
