IP Automation’s innovation for being considered for the award comes from its motto, “Where Ideas Become Reality” as shown in the following…
Ilia Petkov, founder of IP Automation, Inc. was challenged by a customer to solve a problem in the production of part of an aircraft braking system that incorporated a graphite component that had a tendency to crack or break during transportation or production.
The challenge was accepted and Mr. Petkov looked into ways to re-purpose previously scrapped carbon parts by the customer and use the resulting “new” material in the production cycle as an alternative to the unreliable graphite.
The “transformed materials” used in the manufacturing cycle evolved from Mr. Petkov’s vision of how to re-purpose hardened carbon brake components that had to be scrapped after a predetermined number of aircraft landings. He then developed a way to re-cycle the scrap by re-designing and creating a new production component from the carbon material for the customer to use in its production facility.
It is estimated that his contribution to this change in the manufacturing process for the customer has saved the airline industry hundreds of millions of dollars by transforming the previously scrapped material”.
This innovative process began over ten years ago and is still in full production and growing.
