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.
