Koppers Fishing & Tackle

Bringing home fishing lure manufacturing

Project Type

Reverse Engineering


Prior to this research project, Koppers Fishing and Tackle Corp. relied on foreign services for manufacturing of its lure molds without control over the intellectual property or product quality.


To give Koppers more control, the research team aimed to re-shore this process, by providing the company with a proven method for reverse engineering their current lures. They are now able to create a CAD database that can be used for future mold manufacturing.
