Companies working to improve material flow to assembly line, maintain service levels, and improve flow from assembly to warehouse.
YUSA Corp. an automotive manufacturing facility, has partnered with Seegrid Corp., a robotic vision-guided technology manufacturer, to improve the flow of raw material to assembly line, maintain service levels for customer shipments, and improve flow from assembly to warehouse. YUSA found deploying Seegrid's vision guided pallet trucks yielded substantial and immediate benefits, including:
- Reduced Labor Cost: Full-time employees were reassigned to value added work activities
- Reduced Maintenance Costs: Employees performed routine maintenance and trouble shooting.
- No Facility Adaptation: The Robotic Industrial Trucks required no change of the facility and were set up in less than one hour.
- Health and Safety: YUSA required less manual labor, controlled travel speeds, and a system driven workflow that promotes consistent safe behavior.
