Infrastructure Needs Analysis Revitalizes Load Cell Production Flow Line
Emery Winslow Scale Company is a leader in the design, development, and manufacture of load cells, scales, and weighing systems and have been in business for 151 years. Their exclusive HydrostaticTM load cell technology allows the company to provide scales with both superior reliability and performance in the harshest environments, at the lowest cost of ownership.
Their scales are particularly resilient in tough environments where they may be exposed to water and power washing, lightning, corrosives, physical abuse, power surges, welding currents, and explosive conditions.
Over several decades, they have provided unique solutions to virtually every type of application for products of all kinds in a variety of industries, with extensive custom capabilities as well. Applications meet the requirements of a multitude of industries ranging from pharmaceuticals, food and chemical to transportation, waste and scrap.
Emery Winslow’s wide range of scale products include tank and hopper scales, floor scales, bench scales, truck scales, and railroad track scales.
Emery Winslow was interested in consolidating resources from a separate location into their Seymour, Connecticut facility where they would bring in load cell material to assemble, test, pack, and ship. Before making such a move, they needed to define the requirements of the move and consolidation. Specific and relevant criteria would have to be developed to help guide their decision to consolidate and implement such a move.
As part of Emery Winslow’s planned consolidation, they were looking to evaluate a viable “mixed model” production flow line capable of high and low volumes for their scales and load cell products and generate additional output. The company engaged the services of CONNSTEP to assist in reaching their stated goals.
This course provides comprehensive exposure to the principles and practices needed to develop and sustain a Lean Enterprise. You will receive immediate reinforcement of the classroom learning by applying your training to a real-life project within your organization.
IHCO was seeking to use their knowledge of the value of Lean continuous improvement to achieve productively gains in their order fulfillment processes and contacted CONNSTEP for assistance in reaching their goals.
Implementing appropriate continuous improvement tools can help establish a Lean culture throughout an entire organization and deliver transformative results.
