Automatic Windings manufacture custom
wire wound components with a commitment to delivering improved services
to our customers following our stated initiatives of Operational efficiency,
Value engineering, and Lean manufacturing.
It is our policy to constantly monitor and
review all productive and non-productive areas of our companys activity,
acting on areas where improvement will lead to greater efficiency
All components manufactured have a computerised
costing database. By constantly monitoring each operation and action we
find that we are often able to reducing the time taken to perform the
operation. This efficiency is reflected in lower costs the customer.
By working closely with design engineers, we
are able to advise them of the most common used parts, and best methods
of winding to help keep unit costs to a minimum.
If design engineers contact us with a footprint
for the component, we will advise them which assemblies we use most and
the best method of winding to keep their costs to a minimum. It is simpler
to re jig a machine from winding one transformer to another if both are
of the same type but have different windings. This saves set up times
and improves efficiency, reducing costs.
We employ lean manufacturing processes that
maximize our delivery performance, minimising our material stock holding.
We have two customers who between them use six
different types of RM12 transformers. Having calculated the total annual
usage we place bulk orders on our suppliers. The orders commit our suppliers
to retain a two month buffer stock, removing the burden of stockholding
on us, achieving a better price break and reducing costs. Additionally
it limits our commitment on purchasing reducing the liability for cancellation
