Custom Manufacturing Cells For Engineered Vibration

Martin Engineering’s new manufacturing process delivers  outstanding product uniformity, while reducing lead times.
Martin Engineering’s new manufacturing process delivers outstanding product uniformity, while reducing lead times.

 Martin Engineering  has announced the design of a new manufacturing process to build its industrial vibrators, bringing a higher level of quality and consistency through a classic lean manufacturing operation. With two cells now completed and fully operational in the U.S. and Asia,has confirmed that the process delivers repeatable close-tolerance results for outstanding product uniformity, while cutting manufacturing time and reducing the physical demands on employees. The company plans to build its next two manufacturing lines in South America and Africa in 2015 to serve those continents, eventually creating a global manufacturing network to serve customers around the world.

“Our goal is to avoid a business model of centralized manufacturing and then trying to sell products across the globe,” observed VP of Operations Robert Nogaj. “That’s what our competitors do, and the lead times can be prohibitive, often measured in months. This new process gives us the capability to centralize the innovation and design capabilities for our vibrators in the U.S. and manufacture them to the highest quality control standards at the local level.”
