THE CHALLENGE

Ford Motor Company is one of the world’s most well-known brands with operations in over 125 countries, fitting 10 million car wheels each year. In the Romanian plant, wheels were being manually carried to each new car on the production line and then continually rotated for correct alignment. This increased worker fatigue and lowered the efficiency of the production line. 

Alwayse are recognised as an innovative solution provider and were commissioned to improve existing process/methodology.

THE SMART SOLUTION

Alwayse designed and manufactured a Ball Transfer Unit system for Ford’s production line that eliminated the need for heavy lifting and any resulting injuries. Wheels can be easily rotated and precisely positioned with minimal effort. 

Productivity and efficiency both motoring ahead with Alwayse.

AT A GLANCE

  • Makes light work of heavy lifting, reducing manual fatigue.
  • Ball Transfer Units enable controlled alignment.
  • Repeatability increases efficiency.
  • Shifts productivity up a gear.
  • Elimination of manual material handling application.
