MENTOR, OH - June 2014
By integrating new Lean strategies into its operations, Roll-Kraft Ltd. has increased its overall equipment effectiveness by reducing machine downtime by 15%. This reduction allows greater productivity of high-quality roll tooling for tube and pipe and roll forming producers.
The benefits gained by introducing lean processes have furthered the company’s goals of improving an industry leading on-time delivery rate of 97.3% and 97.1% first-time performance out of the box. This successful performance is critical to meeting customer needs for just-in-time deliveries.
Lean processes are not only improving Roll-Kraft, but they have added the capability of obtaining firmly documented measurables, which continue to confirm the company’s on-going commitment to excellence. Earlier this year, the company announced a 43% reduction in waste materials as a result of Lean processes.
