Increase flexibility, reduce setup times and improve production flow

Setup Reduction builds on the principles of the Single Minute Exchange of Dies (SMED) system, developed by Shigeo Shingo, to dramatically reduce or eliminate changeover time. Meet customer demands for high-quality, low-cost products, delivered quickly and without the expense of excess inventory.

Setup Reduction helps:

  • Respond to customer needs and schedules with more flexibility
  • Improve on-time delivery
  • Decrease costs due to excess inventory
  • Increase line and machine capacity levels
  • Increase changeover accuracy
  • Reduce startup defects
