Utilizing the latest kanban manufacturing techniques, Sargent Metal offers Lean Assembly Manufacturing. The teaming of manufacturing and team-assembly services complements existing Sargent Metal workflows and ensures a seamless cost-effective process.
Directly behind the welding subassembly stations are the purchased parts required for the entire operation. These parts are set up on a kanban system. Each location is part-specific and quantity-specific and utilizes a simple visual replenishment system. At the end of the welding subassembly stations, all the fabricated in-house parts are in kanban carts.
The progressive assembly line is designed to work as a moving line for the simplest models. Also, we can install portable tables as static workstations while building the more difficult models. Supply bins at the assembly stations are fed from the kanban supermarket of purchased parts. Workstations are designed to fit the ergonomic needs of most employees.
