Master Systems (Floorcare Buddy) a floor-care company in Dunnville, Ont. invented the Floorcare Buddy, a safer way to apply floor care products (they even appeared on Dragon’s Den). The owner needed help refining key design components and needed a full set of manufacturing drawings. The R & I team at Walker Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Centre provided Master Systems with a prototype development & parts production, using 3D technologies (including 3D design, 3D scanning and rapid prototyping) and a full set of manufacturing and assembly drawings. The research students/faculty also assisted in improving the design for manufacturability with consideration to the latest in injection molding, machining, fabrication and blow molding processes.
