July 23, 2014 - PRLog -- Hytrol Conveyor Company, Inc., manufacturer of advanced conveyor systems, controls, and solutions, was featured in the current issue of Efficient Manufacturing magazine. The article, titled, “Rigorous Testing To Conveyor Success,” was authored by manufacturing journalist, Thomas R. Cutler.

According to Cutler, “Designing an automated conveyance system on paper lacks the kind of rigorous testing required to ensure that post installation, the technology solution works the way it was designed and intended. Few organizations have an internal testing system. Based in Jonesboro, Arkansas, Hytrol installed a test system at their technology center, allowing customers and integration partners, fully test products prior to implementation. This unique resource provides a level of confidence and reassurance to customers. All issues and workability concerns that are addressed before conveyors are at the customer plant floor.”

Lean manufacturing is a comprehensive approach to preserve value, from concept to completion. The execution of best-practice and continuous process improvement was articulated by Chris Taylor, Focus Factory Manager, Hytrol. “It’s all about how the product flows through the facility. It’s about problem solving and streamlining processes to improve production and eliminate waste. We implemented lean principles into the Hytrol facility in 2004, and we have never looked back. It’s ingrained in our culture.”

Chris Glenn, Vice President - Manufacturing and Engineering Operations, Hytrol, emphasized the importance of lean manufacturing and said, “Lean principles are at the core of everything we do here at Hytrol. It’s a unique way of thinking, a philosophy built on efficiency that offers most value to our customer.” Few conveyor companies have been as wise to build the entire enterprise around operator-centric processes. An operator brings value to the manufacturing and assembly of a product that a piece of automation does not always provide. In fact, every conveyor system is geared towards supporting that operator and getting product out the door. By continually investing in people, there is a customer competitive advantage driven by these cultural imperatives.
