Planning a factory with foresight

Designing a factory means planning three product generations in advance. After all, development cycles are getting shorter and shorter, and the demands on flexibility are getting greater and greater. The Leadec teams also worked on this understanding in this project, which began on a blank sheet of paper. During the planning and set-up of the automotive factory, we supported our customer with services such as the specification of workstations, simulation of assembly processes, material flow planning and plant design for vehicle assembly as well as the end-of-line area.

Turn old into new with retrofit

A conveyor trimmed to new

It is not a ”must“ to replace old equipment with new.  In the case of a retrofit, existing plant equipment is adapted to the current technical conditions by means of new components, modules or software solutions. This can save costs and also serves the needs of factory employees. For an automotive manufacturer, our engineers brought the electrics of an existing body shop skid conveyor up to date. First, we disassembled the entire system and rebuilt it according to the customer’s requirements. We then tested the new system software by simulating commissioning to ensure an error-free result at the highest quality for the customer.

Optimizing processes with own production IT

Powerful control software for perfectly mounted axles

The axles of a car connect wheels and body and are subjected to hard stresses during their lifetime. The design of modern axles is therefore complex, and quality assurance during assembly is important. To ensure that assembly processes run smoothly, an industrial manufacturer uses Leadec’s own jitCATS control software in its module plant in Mexico. Here, our team was responsible for the complete manufacturing execution system. Leadec set up the software for the individual assembly and inspection stations as well as for goods receipt, rework and shipping. The experts then commissioned the production control software for the assembly of the rear axles, the front corner module and the suspension strut. As intelligent control software for Industry 4.0, jitCATS can open the way to digitized manufacturing as a solid solution and later be easily scaled and transferred to other regions and markets.

HVAC systems in the demanding food industry

Clean air in the dairy sector

An optimal production climate is especially important for the processing of cheese and dairy products. One of our major cheese processor customers cuts and packages an impressive 5,000 metric tons of cheese annually and has recently built a new automated production hall. Leadec was responsible for the installation of the refrigeration, AC, ventilation and heating systems on a total area of 11,000 square meters (36,000 Sq. Ft.). We continue to ensure optimum air quality through our technical services.

Dis- and reassembly across two continents

A production relocation out of the storybook

The relocation of production parts, plants and machines is a real tour de force for companies. This is because there is often a tight schedule behind it, in which professional assembly, reassembly and commissioning have to be completed elsewhere. Especially when it comes to relocating production units over a distance of 8,000 kilometers. This is the distance over which Leadec’s relocation experts moved test cells for a manufacturer of construction equipment from Tennessee in the USA to São Paulo in Brazil. A challenging and long journey, but one that our teams successfully completed in just four months. The project involved specialists from both the USA and Brazil to ensure a smooth relocation. True to the motto: one-stop solutions even across national borders.

High-performance machines in non-stop operation

Fridges in endless succession

Around two million refrigerators are produced by a household appliance manufacturer per year. This is equivalent to about 5,500 refrigerators per day. The maintenance of the machines and facilities, which operate at high capacity, is correspondingly complex. To ensure an optimal process here, the company relied on external support. This is where Leadec came in with its technical expertise. A particular focus in this project was the development of new preventive maintenance measures as well as the improvement of existing maintenance processes in order to reduce the downtime of critical equipment. Today, the Leadec team is also responsible for the maintenance and repair of robotics, automation and motor control systems, conveyor systems, tool and die, mechanical and low voltage systems as well as electrical troubleshooting.

Careful handling of paint shops

Uncompromisingly clean

In paint shops, even the smallest impurities in the equipment can lead to downtime. And just a single speck of dust on the coating layer determines whether a product is usable.

Accordingly, the cleanliness of its paint shops is extremely important for a major British manufacturer of plastic exterior body parts and fuel tanks. By using cleaning methods and products that are gentle on the material and powerful at the same time, our employees fulfill these requirements day by day. At a total of three sites in the UK, our employees ensure that the paint mixing rooms, ventilation systems and ovens are kept clean.  This not only ensures that plant and machinery retain their value, it also enhances the quality of the end products. In line with our “everything from a single source” principle, Leadec also takes care of janitorial cleaning and landscaping at one of the sites.

Maintenance and resource efficiency go hand in hand

Cost savings through smart facility management

For a multinational conglomerate with presence across industries such as food & beverage, consumer goods and packaging, Leadec is responsible for operating and maintaining the production utilities in a plant in India. This includes for example the HVAC systems, power supply and the electrical system as well as warehousing of electrical and utility equipment.

It was particularly important to the customer to reduce energy supply costs through planned and efficient facility management. Leadec’s answer is, among other things, a smart utility concept. The aim is to manage supply streams such as electricity or water in such a way that resources are used as efficiently as possible. Additional day-to-day controlling of utility activities, as well as team optimization measures, round out our approach. As a result, the customer has fewer expenses and thus has a competitive advantage.

Optimal production environment for high-tech products

Speed and quality in the production of hybrids

Within three months, a manufacturer of high-quality hybrid vehicles commissioned a new production site in China. In Leadec, the customer found a service provider that was able to set up and implement janitorial cleaning, landscaping and pest control activities on the 190,000-square- meter premises within this short period of time. In addition to time pressure, there were high demands regarding the quality of our services, which involved strict evaluation based on defined KPIs. For the latter, for example, our employees conducted regular service and safety audits. In the end, the Leadec team was able to convince the customer in terms of both time and quality, so that the initial five-month phased contract was upgraded to a comprehensive facility management contract. In addition, our employees also provide infrastructural facility management and technical cleaning services at the plant – all from a single source.
