In today’s economy lean automation provides a better solution to manufacturing than its non lean counterparts. In our newest YouTube Setpoint talks about SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Dies) and has a great video clip from a recent machine of the tooling change out. We also talk about Poka-Yokes and making sure that the pieces you add to the machine can only be fitted in one way. Making a machine portable with easy access for maintenance is also another important lean feature. One of the biggest differences lean can make is the size of the footprint. We have a picture of a functioning machine produced in Europe and an overlay of the lean system Setpoint designed and built that does the same thing.
