AGRICULTURE

Agriculture equipment manufacturing is a broad section of products from lawn mowers to tractors, but we love the assembly of them all. Along with the wide range of products, the industry also deals with high seasonal production variation and a market range from consumer to high end professional that present unique production system challenges. Our lean solutions, including flow racks, cart systems, and workstations, reduce excess handling of components and enhance efficiency; additionally, these solutions can help achieve the goals of quality management systems such as those pertaining to ISO 65.060.01 (Agricultural machines and equipment).

CUSTOMIZED SOLUTIONS

 

TOW CARTS

Manufacturers of agricultural equipment are moving away from the use of forklifts as the primary means of material flow. If your goal is to go forklift free, our cart systems can solve the point a to point b movement in safe and efficient ways. We design carts that accommodate any type of top hat or material, from packaged to raw parts, and we can create modular cart systems using mother daughter carts, tow carts, and sequence carts that work together seamlessly.

REUSABLE PACKAGING

Reusable packaging can be applied in two ways: either in the full loop from supplier to assembly and back again, or as a repack only inside the assembly facility.

 

Both cases have a use for agricultural manufacturers depending on supplier location, part type, and volume. Reusable packaging in these cases will often be as a kit of parts to keep material supply in sync with build volume.

MULTI OPERATOR WORKSPACE

Agricultural equipment manufacturers often design their production lines with operators on both sides, or multiple operators working on a unit at the same time, to keep lines shorter, deal with volume fluctuations, and keep work content high on large assemblies. This arrangement presents material flow challenges that can be tackled with mobile workstations, creative part presentation, and cart systems.
