Transcript of How it's made: Wall Clock

Product Dimensions
Internal components
Aesthetics (design of clock face with style and size of numbers)
Ergonomics (legibility)
More Manufacturing!!
-Once the dial is finished it is put into the casing of frame of the clock.
-Traditional covers for a wall clock frame are made of plastic.
-Workers then add a battery pack for the insertion of batteries.
-Design variables-

Diameter of clock face
Total clock diameter
Depth of clock
Thickness of clock face
Thickness of clock face cover
Thickness of clock frame
Thickness of back cover plate
Length of the edge of the mounting squares
Length of the hour hand
Width of the hour and minute hands
Length of the minute hand
Length of the second hand
Width of the second hand

Plastic or glass for clock face
Metal or plastic for frame
Aluminum or plastic for dial
Quartz and battery pack
Specific names for these materials include:
metallic, organic and polymeric
-Process Selection-
- Engineers often use casting for the frame of the wall clock. This process requires melting materials and pouring them into a mold. The frame could be made of several different materials. Major ones include metal or wood.
- The next step is the dial which is often made with plastic for traditional wall clocks.
- Tic marks can designed through some type of computer software and printed out and transferred onto the dial.
-Manufacturing continued...

Thank you!
- The next step is joining the hour, minute, and second hands. This is often done mechanically by engineers or product makers. These hands are eventually joined by a decorative nut.
-The hands of the clock are often times made of aluminum and are cut out using a computer guided cutter.
-Manufacturers inspect and test the efficiency of the clock in order for it to be put on the market.
-Makers also look and research for other competitive products.
-Most product makers provide a phone number or website to complete a survey for feedback, letting them know how they like the product and any suggestions to better their product.
