The multi-national systems builder markets an entry-level solution for smaller customers that is a build-to-stock standard product. However, a majority of the company's business comes from building and staging large, custom systems. As a majority of the business was structured for the engineered-to-order business, their manufacturing processes did not lend themselves to building standard products efficiently. As a result, the product was not achieving its annual growth target.
MTA took on the manufacturing of the entire product at our facility. We used our CNC capabilities to bring machining of critical components in-house to further reduce cost. We also worked with our existing supply chain to further reduce the cost of fabricated and commercial components. We utilized lean manufacturing techniques to further reduce the lead time and maximize labor efficiency of this manufacturing cell. We utilize Kanban systems to maintain appropriate component inventory to meet demand while minimizing working capital.
Using MTA’s manufacturing location and know-how, the customer achieved a 28% reduction in total cost and reduced the lead time from 10-12 weeks to 5 days.
Original Equipment Manufacturer
MTA utilized our motion and process control expertise to develop a breakthrough, new product that will position our client as the technology leader in this market.
The Chromoffix II, a new technology developed by MTA for CompuType, can apply a tread label every 1.8 seconds, twice the speed of conventional tread label machines. The overall cost of the system is less than ½ the cost of custom automation with a success rate of 98.9 percent.
Aluminum Can Forming Tool Manufacturer
This innovation provided the manufacturer's customers with increased uptime and a decrease in scrap. It also allowed the client to position themselves as a lead innovator in their market, driving higher sales growth and an increased share. They are now the market leader in intelligent can manufacturing.
End-Of-Line Packaging System Manufacturer
As a result of these innovations, rail deliveries are no longer affecting delivery dates to end customers. They are now able to more efficiently grow their businesses with key accounts.
Inspection Equipment Manufacturer
With Motion Tech Automation’s software and solutions, the customer reduced the total rotational error by over 75%. With our new rotary stage technology, they were able to improve the speed, accuracy and performance of their inspection process.
Pharmaceutical/Specialty Chemical Manufacturer
Utilizing capacitive technology, the customer reduced down-time, reduce set-up time, reduced label scrap, and created a faster and more reliable labeling process.
