Project Description

Malleable MaterialsCase Study: The Extrusion Problem

The Problem

An industrial materials company wanted to learn more about the production of malleable mixed materials (e.g. Rediflame Fire Logs) through ram extrusion. The customer specifically wanted perspectives from materials scientists and engineers, as well as users of ram extrusion equipment, but failed to find an analysis firm that could meet their budget and timeline.

Critical Issues

Variety of Perspectives     Budget     Speed

The Solution

Maven conducted an Electronic Survey of materials scientists, engineers, and ram extrusion experts to gain insights into their preferred methods and equipment. In less than 12 hours, the customer received a published report containing detailed insights from dozens of qualified respondents.

“Maven provided us with strong analysis of current trends in malleable materials production in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional analysis firms.”
