Milling effect is lost – Case #305

January 30, 2015


“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 leather was losing the required milling effect (becoming flat) because the hammering was being done with excessive pressure and the hammer was covered with leather with the grain out (therefore hammering grain against grain).

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to cover the hammer with a piece of leather with the flesh side out and to reduce the pressure on the hammering machine.
