Accu-Fab has recently installed several pieces of new state of the art machinery to expand and improve our production capabilities as we continuously strive toward our goal of manufacturing EXCELLENCE. The following are our two newest additions:

  • Amada EMK3612M2-T58 – Turret Punch and Automation –significantly adding to our existing automated Punch capacity
  • Amada EN3015AJ-3k Fiber Laser 5 x 10 – 6k Fiber Laser and Loader – 6,000 watts of cutting power expanding our cutting speeds and the ability to cut thicker materials.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In an effort to reduce waste as well as improve efficiency, we have implemented a proprietary Paperless Documentation System. This will provide real-time information via information terminals placed in each work station throughout the plant.  Fully implemented, each employee can both view and report consolidated key business metrics company-wide through this online system, to include

  • Business Profitability & Revenue Goals, Projections and Real-time Performance
  • Work Order/Router Information and Component/Process Specifications
  • Floor Labor Reporting and Operator Efficiency
  • Quality Reporting and Performance Metrics
  • Internal Engineering Change Activity
  • Continuous improvement Activity
  • Internal Activities scheduled
  • MSDS & Safety reporting
  • AFI news of Interest
  • New Job postings

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In summary, our new PDS initiative accomplishes the following business objectives;

  • The removal of the majority of paper documents and flow of paper on the manufacturing shop floor
  • Provide and collect immediate up-to date critical business information in real-time
  • Provide access to, and the collection of, valuable business information to all employees.
