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.

Heel attachment – Case #470

“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 factory was using a 22mm length screw to secure the heel, which is too short to properly hold a high heel.

case 470 pic 1 impactiva footwear qa

Impactiva solution: we got the factory to use a longer heel screw (28 mm length) to strengthen the heel attachment.

Heels nailing procedure – Case #383

“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 factory was nailing the heels without using an EVA mould to secure the position of the heel. This is not the correct method as it can cause heels to twist and nails to cross, that in turn would result in a crooked unstable heel that could end up hurting the user.
