The art of improving operational efficiency and helping to make processes more "Lean" are key challenges for manufacturing operations today.
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.
MiniTec designed and assembled 16 robust trolleys for the customer using its 30 × 30 aluminium profile system. Each trolley can carry up to eight trays of parts with a maximum weight of 60kg - a simple solution to a potentially costly and time-consuming handling issue.
