SERVAX, a division of Landert Motoren AG, produces custom electric drive systems. At their headquarters in Bülach, the company assembles liquid-cooled motors for a leading textile machinery manufacturer. To remain competitive, SERVAX needed to reduce manufacturing costs for this product line. It commissioned Zühlke to identify areas for improvement and to implement measures aimed at increasing the productivity of the assembly process by at least 20 %.
An expert in lean manufacturing from Zühlke used value stream mapping to analyse existing materialflows and the manufacturing process.
