Lean Manufacturing at Superior Thread Rolling

lean manufacturingPut simply, Lean Manufacturing is all about reducing the time and resources required to produce a product by eliminating non-value-added waste in the production stream. Lean Manufacturing is a dynamic process, one that is never completed. At Superior Thread Rolling, Lean Manufacturing is an integral part of our commitment to continuous improvement at all levels of our organization.

On the shop floor, we have applied the principles of Lean Manufacturing to create precision machining cells, speed the thread rolling process, and enhance our computerized production control system, just to name a few. Selected management and production personnel meet regularly as a team to assess the results, with positive applications replicated in other areas of the company. Lean Manufacturing is one of the many ways that Superior Thread Rolling is maximizing efficiency and value for our customers. When it comes to world-class Lean Manufacturing technology, Superior Thread Rolling is committed where it counts.
