When Danuser Machine bought a new laser cutter machine with higher capacity that the previous one they used, they quickly realized that the existing raw material storage system will not be sufficient. Ease of access to raw materials is critical to maintaining high utilization rate of both the workforce and the machine. Company turned to Lean Manufacturing Products which makes custom, small footprint raw material storage systems. Every dimension, including shelving spacing, can be made to order and the design ensure sharp edge pieces are on the inside, reducing the risk of injuries and cuts.
- In 1910, the Danuser Machine company that was to be was launched in Fulton, Missouri as a black smith shop.
- Today, the same place is an industrial manufacturer of agricultural attachments with 120 employees.
- The company recently put in a custom-spaced storage system to radically revolutionize how workers access supplies.
“The company also was concerned about product damage with the old system. Workers spent hours every week buffing out rust spots caused by wooden runners and battling warped sheets at the press brakes. With the new laser pushing faster production, Danuser couldn’t afford that kind of delay.”
