Modular Flow-Thru Workstations Help This GM Supplier Deliver “Just in Time”…Every Time
Android Industries, a valued GM supplier since 1989, knows what it takes to keep pace with the renowned car and truck builder. To satisfy “just-in-time” demands from GM, the company needed to optimize the flow of their assembly lines.
After a consultation with UNEX distributor, Nelson Equipment Company, Android Industries ordered 22 FlowCell modular flow rack units. After the workstations arrived, it took about 30 minutes for production line employees to set up each FlowCell unit – all 22 were installed the same day.
Since working with UNEX, Android Industries benefited from:
- A reconfigurable system that could be adjusted as needed and was built to withstand the movement around the plant.
- “Mix & Match” components that form an efficient, customized station where parts and product are always ready and reachable.
- A fast-moving assembly system without the use of robotics.
- The ability to store 4 days worth of material on the FlowCell, reducing how often material needs to be replaced.
