Oji Intertech, Inc.

North Manchester, Indiana


Oji Intertech is a dynamic growth company serving the automotive/ transportation and industrial packaging industries. Our core competencies are centered around compression molding, diecutting, assembly and extrusion coating. Our production technologies allow us to offer our customers an array of products that support products across multiple industries. For the automotive/transportation industries, we provide headliners, structure seat supports, diecut assemblies for visor spacers, structural membranes, and aircaps for overhead systems. For the industrial packaging industries, our products range from wraps for the steel and paper industries to fiber drum and consumer packaging lamination.

Situation: 

Prior to the summer of 2017, Oji Intertech, Inc. (O.I.T.) did not have 3D design capabilities. The organization quoted designs with a viewing software, followed by a lengthy back and forth process with customers to improve the product’s manufacturability. 

By developing design capabilities, O.I.T. would be able to quote business to which they would otherwise not have access. 

Solution: 

Purdue MEP, in conjunction with the IN-MaC program, was able to get O.I.T. up-to-speed with newly acquired software.  Purdue MEP accomplished this through translating their academic and industry knowledge into easy to follow technical manuals and case studies.

Results:  

Purdue MEP provided materials and training to O.I.T. to rapidly leverage their investment in advanced CAD software, avoiding a lengthy adoption process.

Purdue MEP provided services to enable O.I.T. to improve the accuracy and timeliness of quotes, improve the manufacturability of products, and reduced effort and improved the quality of internal design product. 

“It had been several years since I had worked with 3D CAD software. Purdue MEP was able to quickly get me up to speed on the capabilities of our software and provide me resources through which I’ll be able to efficiently train and onboard new engineers. This partnership has also allowed me to more efficiently communicate with customers and our tooling shops, and has allowed me to provide higher quality information overall from electronic documents, which has led to better decision making.”
