The manufacturer of recycling systems is relying on new production processes with the optimum use of resources in its production of assembly groups. The new approach enables reduced production lead times for the individual assembly groups, such as melt filters and pelletizers, while at the same time increasing product quality.
Erema, headquartered in Ansfelden near Linz, a manufacturer of recycling systems, adopts new production processes with the optimum use of resources in the production of assembly groups. The new strategy enables to reduce production lead times for the individual assembly groups, such as melt filters and pelletizers, while at the same time increasing product quality.
Erema opened a new assembly shop 4 at the Ansfelden location at the end of April and decided to change over to a new production process which is geared towards future customer requirements. With the capacity enhancement, the lead times to customers will be significantly reduced with reliable delivery a further improvement in the quality standards.
Manfred Hackl, CEO at EREMA, explains, “In doing so we made a conscious decision to optimize the production processes at the same time. Besides optimum tool selection for the respective assembly group, each workplace has access to modern fabrication infrastructure such as scissor lifts, slewing jib cranes and a fully automatic Kanban system. The necessary material and information processes are coordinated based on exactly timed planning of the individual workplaces. This ensures a smooth production process with upstream and downstream departments.The approach also comes with benefits for employees. Particular attention was placed on ergonomics and practicability for the user in the design of the modern and clean workplace.”
