15th February 2012 - Toolrite score in Texas!
 
Toolrtie score in Texas!

During January 2012, a USA customer was happy to reward his visitors from Toolrite with some evening refreshment after a long haul commissioning visit with new format parts for their IMA C80 machine.

This recent visit was part of the commitment from Toolrite to fast track an order received pre-Christmas 2011. We were tasked to redesign 3 new formats and supply change part tooling to accommodate the emboss coding of thermo-form blister packs. These CI steps will increase our clients line OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) dramatically and reduce time losses caused by format change over.

In true "fast track" nature, as the Designer and Technician were filling in their on-line US visa forms, completed parts for this order were being simultaneously hand couriered on a day return trip to Bologna Italy for specialist surface treatment. As the guys stepped aboard their plane to Texas, the completed consignment was then already arriving at US customs for clearance.

A typical Airport - transfer - factory - hotel - factory - transfer - airport commissioning visit was gladly interrupted with some beer & chicken at a local Texas bar!

Further change parts are now underway; a return trip is already in the planning!
