LEAN IN MOULD MANUFACTURING
We often listen about Lean. But “what is lean”? And why is this so important especially in mould manufacturing? Simply because, the lean core idea is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. So, lean is not a merely addition of tools such as “Five S” or “Kaizen”, lean is a way of thinking that starts and returns to the customer. Uniteam, in partnership with the toolshop Dynamica, is able to solve customer problem minimizing resources: first of all minimizing lead time. In order to do this, Uniteam uses not only its well known problem solving capabilities but also investing in Dynamica’s lean tools. In this way lean thinking can help all process steps, from the first sketch to the injection molded part. From customer to customer.
