Incorrect skiving – Case #413

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Practical solutions to problems encountered in the manufacturing process that demonstrate how we assist our customers’ factories to produce Right from the Start TM.

Problem: the lining is not skived at the toe area, what makes the toe part so bulgy that opens during lasting.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to rough the edges and add a backer on the toe area in order to prevent opening during lasting. We also instructed to skive properly the toe area in new production batches.
