You’ve enacted multiple lean manufacturing principles to reduce cycle times, shorten transit times, simplify workflow, and optimize your shop floor layout. However, none of these initiatives protect your team from today’s most common safety hazards, ones that lead to extended employee downtime, reduced throughput, and most importantly, higher costs.
What happens when an unanticipated increase in demand leaves your manufacturing work cells in complete disarray? This is when you see production bins piling up, product defects, a growing backlog, and worst of all, inured Industrial Athletes. If you’ve encountered this situation, then you need to invest the time in adopting lean manufacturing work cells.
Many industrial platforms fall short because they are made with cheap wood or unnecessarily bulky metal materials. Wood constructed work platforms and elevated floors are many times makeshift creations made using blocks of wood, pallets or time-consuming plywood platform builds. The key thing for businesses to realize is that they are paying for more than just custom woodwork. The materials (wood), tools, time, planning, and employees needed to stop their actual jobs to construct the custom work platform need to be considered in the cost.
Replacing mats on time is important for worker health, safety, and housekeeping. Learn about the main signs we see that indicate matting needs to be replaced.
FOUNDATION tiles are manufactured using 100% recycled post-consumer Polypropylene. The result is two fold: Wearwell creates a modular work platform that can withstand any industrial or household application and does so with reuse and recycling at the forefront. In addition to their environmental consciousness, FOUNDATION tiles are built strong, with each tile rated to a 400 lb load rating (177 lbs per sq. ft.). Enhancing their environmental impact, each tile can be replaced individually if it experiences excess wear, and resultantly the entire system does not need to be replaced.
FOUNDATION platforms are an economical choice vs. other homegrown methods for designing and installing platforms. And, it is so versatile that it can easily be disassembled and reused when needs change. Simple design. Simple installation. Simple maintenance.
