Sharonville Transmission Plant Recognizes Team for Quality Innovation
The team developed and implemented a new inspection station that utilizes a laser to measure and inspect parts for potential issues. By using an accurate laser and robust design, the productivity, quality and cost for this part have improved significantly. Upfront planning helped the team manage the integration of the new system in a very short timeframe.
“This project shows that innovation can occur at every level in the manufacturing system,” said Area Manager John Orlando. “The launch was successful due to the team's upfront planning and dedication to manage the integration of the new system in such a short timeframe.”
Advancements in laser technology enabled the accuracy and reliability needed for this project.
The new station also delivers increased productivity that Sharonville Transmission Plant needs to meet rising 6R80 volumes.
