Selling Purpose Designed Equipment to Improve Lean Manufacturing Assembly Areas

Error-Proofing Technology

When it comes to manufacturing, it’s always important to seek improvements. After all, a customer never complained about having a better product! Error-proofing technology can make sure that you build your products better and faster.

Benefits of Error-Proofing Technology

Error-Proofing Products & Systems

Benefits are great, but first, you have to make a decision. How do you determine what products or systems are the best choices for you? The best approach is to examine your company’s specific problems and consider these options:

Pick-to-Light (P2L)

Computer shows the Lightning Pick tool and the various boxes as part of its process.This system helps employees quickly find a small number of items when there are many SKU’s (25-1500) located across a lengthy storage area (4ft – 40ft). Indicator lights direct operators to the appropriate picking bins, which yields the following benefits

How a P2L System Works:

Light Guided Assembly System (LGS)

LGS can help employees pick a subset of the available parts from various onboard manual assembly workstation bins. Some benefits of an LGS include:

How an LGS Works:
