Dometic Sanitation Corporation - Nozzle for Newest Portable Toilet

“I am really happy with the results that Quickparts produces time and time again,” said Mark Ezzo. “They produce quality parts in a timely manner with rewarding customer service.”


Dometic Sanitation Corporation designs and manufactures onboard sanitation systems and related equipment that exceed boat builder and end user expectations while protecting the marine environment.

This company began developing specialized systems in 1960 when it was a division of residential bath fixture manufacturer Mansfield Sanitary, Inc. Dometic has worked closely with many boat manufacturers – engineering sanitation systems that meet a wide range of manufacturing and customer needs.

Dometic as a whole is a custom-driven, world-leading provider of innovative leisure products for the caravan, motor home and marine markets. It offers a complete range of air conditioners, refrigerators, awnings, cookers, sanitation systems, lighting, windows, doors, and other equipment that makes leisure life more comfortable away from home.

Challenge

Faced with a large production project and a looming time line, Dometic Sanitation Corporation realized preliminary work was lacking from the previous designs of a critical flushing nozzle on their newest portable toilet system.

The new design would have to pass numerous tests, proving that the new part would not interfere with production.

“I had used Quickparts in the past and knew they would be the right company for what I needed,” said Mark Ezzo. “I knew that they would be able to meet my tight deadline and deliver quality parts in a short time.”

Solution

Dometic worked closely with Quickparts engineers to finalize design iterations, settling upon the final prototype. By placing numerous SLA orders and receiving them in days, they were able to confirm the new design by performing fit and form testing.

“After the fit and form testing we were able to create functional and cosmetic Cast Urethane prototype parts which we can then test in a real environment,” said Mark. “The guess work was gone since the prototypes so closely mimicked the production material of the part.”

Benefits

By taking advantage of Quickparts’ QuickQuote technology, Dometic was able to obtain instant online quotes in minutes. Utilizing the Next-Day SLA option, Quickparts drastically reduced the lead time.

“I am really happy with the results that Quickparts produces time and time again,” said Mark. “They produce quality parts in a timely manner with rewarding customer service.”
