Wrinkled tongue – Case #652

“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: wrinkles on the tongue because the factory was applying glue to the lining.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to stop using glue at the lining as it is not necessary for the construction, and in this way the wrinkles are avoid at the same time that they save materials, labor and time.

Glue application on straps – Case #650

“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 strap lining gets glue stains because applying the glue on the table stains it and transfers it to the strap.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to hang the strap above the table during glue application in order to avoid stains on the lining.

Inconsistent pleats – Case #644

“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 pleats look inconsistent and they open due to insufficient glue application at the edges.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to change the glue application cut-outs shape (wider at edges) in order to improve the glue application and achieve a good pleating shape.

Glue application on foot beds – Case #629

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 factory was using one jig for all the sizes to apply glue on the footbeds. This caused that in larger sizes the edges were not attached properly, and smaller sizes received an excess of glue.

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to prepare different jigs for different sizes in order to apply the required quantity of glue.

Top lifts – Case #602

“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: top lift opens with little pressure as no glue was applied on the stems.

case 602 pic 1 impactiva footwear qa

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to apply adhesive on the three stems to strengthen the attachment and this improved the top lift pull strength.

Top line reinforcement – Case #590

“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 reinforcement tape was not properly stuck to the top line because it didn’t have  enough glue on it.

case 590 pic 1 impactiva footwear qa

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to make holes on the glue container and pass the tape  through it so that it catches enough glue to stick properly.

Stained ornaments – Case #517

“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: glue stains on ornaments caused by the use of super glue to fix the loose ones.

An aesthetic detail – Case #512

“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 reinforcement tape from the lining side is visible between the double stitching, especially in curved areas, looking very unaesthetic.

case 512 pic 1 impactiva footwear qa case 512 pic 2 impactiva footwear qa case 512 pic 3 impactiva footwear qa

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to revise the construction of this shoe. We advised them to do an underlay stitching instead of using reinforcement tape. This will:

- help to save time during the lining pieces attachment operation

- reduce the cost of material (no need for reinforcement tape, just attaching the components with glue and a single stitch)

Single stitching is enough for good strength in this case, and the aesthetic look of the shoe is enhanced.
