We recently completed a project for an Illinois State Police retiree who presented us with a common problem in crime scene investigation, the storing of fingerprint cards. The retired officer shared with us that he believes there is a better way to store fingerprint cards as opposed to the traditional way that has been used in the past. His proposition was to create a fingerprint tray to hold fingerprint cards and keep them clean while offering easy dispensing using gloved hands.
After being presented with this problem, we went to work to turn this tray into a reality. Our in-house engineers have created the injection molding tooling using our CAD/CAM software and our CNC mills. We have just completed injection molding thousands of these trays for the client. We are eager to see how this new design improves the process of gathering fingerprints.
