Winfield, AL (PRWEB) June 16, 2011
Continental Crushing & Conveying, a Joy Global Inc. company, has selected Vorne Industries, Inc.’s Vorne XL as its Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) solution. After testing the Vorne XL Productivity Appliance on one production line, Continental Crushing & Conveying has decided to apply this system to a total of 11 manufacturing lines in its Winfield, AL plant.
As part of their continuous improvement efforts, the team at Continental Crushing & Conveying wanted to deploy a tool that would meet their OEE data collection requirements and provide a visual factory tool to convey real-time production information on the plant floor.
The Vorne XL Productivity Appliance meets both their needs with one solution.
“In our first two weeks, we saw a significant productivity improvement on the test line. Our initial success is really what drove the expansion with Vorne,” said Jeff Farrar, an industrial engineer with Joy Mining.
Vorne brings a wealth of practical lean manifesting expertise to this project. As publisher of http://www.oee.com and author of “The Fast Guide to OEE,” Vorne has helped thousands of companies apply and reap the benefits of OEE and Lean Manufacturing. Vorne XL Systems are currently installed in more than 30 countries worldwide.
Focused exclusively on developing products for the industrial manufacturing environment, Vorne specializes in products that improve manufacturing performance with minimal disruption to existing infrastructure. Vorne is relentless in looking for ways to help companies successfully improve their manufacturing productivity.
