Case Study - Canon Magnetic Assemblies

Cameras use two different types of image stabilization - digital and optical. Optical image stabilization is more sensitive than digital. By combining two assemblies into one, we were able to improve this key component of their product.

THE PROBLEM

Canon's original requirement was a shaft centerline with a magnetic orientation of 15 degrees. Orgininally, Canon would first complete the mold for the axle and card. After providing the magnets, they put the pieces together in their factory. This was very inefficient - during the connection process the glue would easily move on the product. The result: the quality control failure rate was very high.


THE SOLUTION

We were able to offer Canon a solution through a precision injection process. First, we placed a magnet in the injection mold with a guaranteed angle of 15 degrees (+/-0.5). Second, shallow grooves were added to increase adhesion of the glue and keep it from moving over time.


THE RESULT

Canon was able to improve quality control pass rates as well as production efficiency. Having solved this problem concerning a key component to the camera Canon was able to move forward.
