UNITED GRINDING Group Celebrates Flow Assembly Line Launch



United Grinding Group AG held an event in its Kurim, Czech Republic-based Walter Maschinenbau GmbH production facility to announce its new flow assembly line. Speakers included WALTER CEO Jürgen Schock and Flow Assembly Line Project Manager Markus Schulze, both of whom welcomed guests and introduced the innovation prior to pressing a symbolic start button with the entire project team to launch the new line.

Designed for the production of the WALTER HELITRONIC POWER, HELITRONIC MINI POWER and HELITRONIC VISION 400 L, the new flow assembly line represents a multi-million euro investment aimed at improving process stability and production flexibility while reducing delivery and lead times. The new line features a fishbone-shaped component assembly line that feeds a 295 ft. long conveyor belt and creates a total of 18 assembly stations. Spanning the assembly facility, the new line brings products directly to the shipping department for packaging.

"The newly streamlined workflow is already improving the efficiency of HELITRONIC POWER and HELITRONIC MINI POWER production, and WALTER plans to add the HELITRONIC VISION 400 L later this year," said a company spokesperson. "Further innovations, such as a pick-to-light system that helps manage the supply of materials to the flow assembly line, have been incorporated into the production line for further efficiency. The WALTER team next plans to target the logistics department for continued workflow and production optimization," the spokesperson added.
