Fiat Chrysler came to Bel Air with a de-powdering problem which was a bottleneck in their production of several different engine components. The production of molded parts were consuming too much hand labor along with being inconsistent. Bel Air developed a process, designed and built a custom machine to facilitate, constant, automated powder removal.
