Summary
  • Vector Research is a Milan, OH-based company that manufactures the test dummies used in car crash tests. It produces a range of dummies, designed to correspond to the specifications provided by its clients in the automobile safety research field. Vector's traditional manufacturing approach was to cast its molds by hand, modifying those obtained when requested by clients. The process usually took 18 months for new molds, a cycle which was considered too slow by its clients. To speed up the process, Vector decided to automate its mold-making procedures by shifting to CNC machining and using solid modelling, ultrasonic digitizers and computer-aided manufacturing software. It turned to Haas Automation Inc. for its equipment needs. Haas provided Vector with a VF1 with a work envelope measuring 20 x 16 x 20 in., a geared head with two speeds, a spindle that was oil-cooled, and a mold that was compatible with Fanuc.
