Why traditional manufacturing theories don't work

Complexity and variability are the new norm in modern business. Changing customer behaviour, shorter product lifecycles and a rising complexity in global supply chains is making life increasingly difficult for production planners. Here, Roger Fleury, Managing Director of resource management software specialist Ardent Solutions, explains why the traditional theories of manufacturing are outdated and how taking a demand-driven approach is the answer.

Spray Nozzle Coats, Cools, Treats and Paints in Tight Spaces

EXAIR's 1/4 NPT internal mix deflected flat fan atomizing spray nozzle atomizes fluid and sprays at a right angle to the nozzle orientation. This allows spray to be placed precisely where it is needed when the mounting and work areas are limited. These nozzles are ideal for coating the inside of enclosures and ductwork. They combine liquid and compressed air inside of the air cap to produce the finest mist of atomized liquid that can be easily adjusted to meet the needs of your application. These spray nozzles provide liquid flows from 1.8 to 6.9 gallons per hour.

Mirroring efficiency

In Europe's most efficient car production plant, 115 cars are created every hour. Through a mixture of robots, experienced staff and lean manufacturing principles, the process is highly efficient, leading to the high output. Here, Hugh Freer, a director of electric tug specialist MasterMover, explains how suppliers to the automotive industry can mirror this efficiency.

Avoiding cross contamination on conveyors

In the twelfth century, workers in the Venetian Arsenal produced naval vessels by moving them down a canal, affixing a new part at each stop. This early version of the production line allowed shipbuilders to produce a ship a day. Since then, the modern assembly line has become much more complex, with stricter regulations, particularly concerning contamination in the food processing industry. Here, Rob Rogers, technical director at materials handling specialist Gough Engineering, looks at how factory managers can avoid products being contaminated as they move through the assembly line.
