A company was looking for someone to build a framework to adapt their loadcells and rollers. Application required ICS to fit in the confines of an existing piece of machinery and meet the stringent specifications of the end-user. Carbon fiber and woven type substrate material are used in the process therefore roller spacing is very critical.

ICS was able to:
