The art of improving operational efficiency and helping to make processes more “Lean” are key challenges for manufacturing operations today.
Efficient movement of parts between ops
A well-known international manufacturer of Turbo systems has a manufacturing operation in Bradford where turbo shafts are manufactured using multiple machining operations carried out on different machines.
Moving work-in-progress between operations and machines can be a real problem, especially if the parts cannot be simply and easily loaded onto transporters to move them between ops.
Simply robust trolley from MiniTec
We designed and assembled 16 of these bespoke trolleys using the 30 x30 aluminium profile in the MiniTec range.
Each trolley can carry up to eight trays of parts with a maximum weight of 60 Kgs – a simple solution to a potentially costly and time-consuming handling issue.
