Chafer Machinery build strong, technologically advanced and simple to operate spraying equipment. Struggling to meet delivery times, the challenge for Chafer was how to produce the machines using the current resources, whilst maintaining a high quality end product. The MTC was tasked with reducing build hours, increasing capacity and flexibility to ensure on time delivery to the customer and maximising profit.
Working areas were improved, creating individual colour coded bays, standardised tooling and flow racks for kitted parts. Visual management was introduced in the workshop for the fitters and management, allowing greater visibility of the production plan.
