Case Study | Reduce Cost by Reducing Equipment

ICEPARTSSome customers have a need to affix fasteners but do not have the budget to purchase the auto-feeding equipment. By creating dual-station tooling with part auto-unload in one machine, there is more time available to hand-feed fasteners in one station while the other station is in process.The dual-station not only allows extra load time, it also is continuously processing parts in the opposite station. This effectively eliminates operator load time and the cost of auto-feed equipment, and realizes 100% machine time as well.

Since 2001, Honda of America Mfg., Inc. has consistently encouraged their suppliers to review the Tec-Option modular assembly system as a possible source of manufacturing equipment. While Honda has no direct control over who their suppliers choose, getting a recommendation shows that Honda sees the value of the flexible, modular system that Tec-Option provides.
