UNEX Exhibits Lean Solutions at The Assembly Show

FIFO, Ergonomics, Reduced Touches Work to Reduce Wastes Within Assembly Process

LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) -  UNEX Manufacturing, Inc., the trusted industry leader in providing innovative order picking solutions, will be exhibiting their lean manufacturing solutions at The Assembly Show in Booth 1005 on October 27 - 29 in Rosemont, IL. With lean a key focus of most supply chain managers responsible for manufacturing everything from cars to computers, it is imperative to implement waste-reducing processes using philosophies like 5S. UNEX engineers understand lean principles, such as first-in-first-out (FIFO) and ergonomics that lead to a faster and more efficient picking process.

"To maximize the efficiency of human and machine labor within assembly operations, best practices show that placing raw materials and parts closer to assembly lines reduce extra movements, a key 'waste' that should be eliminated within any lean manufacturing operation," said Brian Neuwirth, VP of Sales and Marketing, UNEX Manufacturing, Inc. "Using modular, dynamic storage units at lineside or subassembly stations can eliminate unnecessary touches and movements. Our UNEX Flow Cells keep sub-assembly inventory organized, off the floor, and in the right order for assembly to boost efficiency up to 30 percent."

UNEX Flow Cell units deliver lean benefits such as maximizing the efficient use of space, while accommodating a variety of materials and product sizes. As new parts or subassemblies are incorporated within the plant, Flow Cells can be quickly and easily reconfigured without having to replace them. Plus the systems reduce unnecessary touches and movements with angled shelves for easy reaching.

The Assembly Show takes place on October 27 - 29 and is sponsored by Assembly magazine. Visit UNEX at Booth 1005 to better understand how the company's solutions increase productivity and reduce manufacturing lead times.
