Woller Precision Machine in Pound, Wis., makes components for the medical, defense and consumer appliance industries. It also produces small-batch quantities of aluminum interior commercial aircraft components. The company wanted to expand its production capabilities to better meet customer demands, but it was limited by its current machining equipment. To become more competitive and profitable, the company decided to replace its vertical machining centers with horizontal machines and an automated pallet-handling system. As a result, the company has been able to enjoy these benefits:
A 21 percent increase in sales with only a 6 percent expansion in labor requirements
Part cycle-time reductions of up to 50 percent
A 50 percent decrease in work in process that has provided better cash flow to reinvest in the business
