Just read what others have to say…
So far this year, we have been able to achieve a 22% improvement in OEE. And XL has been an integral part of our improvement process. By knowing the status of all our lines in real-time, we can address problems in real-time. With the XL800, our entire team sees downtime, and eliminates downtime. We count on the XL800 to show us what area’s we need to address, and take immediate action from there.M.H.Plant Manager | Personal Care and Household Products
We have definitely noticed a productivity improvement since we started using the XL800 display. Before it was installed, our line averaged 75% efficiency. Since the installation of the XL800 we are operating at between 90 and 95%. Since this unit was so successful we are in the process of adding further units to our other lines.A.P.Lean Co-ordinator | Global Electric Component Manufacturer
The results are amazing! We went from about eight thousand units a day to just over eleven thousand just by having the screens installed. That’s an almost 30% increase in production and we have been able to sustain our gains. Everybody in the plant loves the displays. Supervisors, managers and operators now have a great tool for monitoring the progress of the lines in real time.R.K.Maintenance Supervisor | Decorative Can and Tin Manufacturer
Downtime hurts – we know when our machines aren’t running we’re hurting the bottom line. In order to fix the problem, we had to be able to see what was occurring. By using XL timers, we are able to see how much downtime has occurred. Now that we know where to look, we have been able to reduce our downtime. When it works it works! That’s why we have a timer on every press.R.H.Automation Engineer | National Plastics Injection Moulding Firm
Having real-time production data on the plant floor has really changed how we work. We now know exactly where we should be relative to goal and have seen remarkable, sustained 8% increase in throughput as a result.Our shifts now compete on a daily basis to try and out-produce the other shifts. Not only does this help us increase productivity, it makes it really fun for the teams.D.M.Manufacturing Engineer | Seat Frame Supplier
The XL800 display definitely generates a competitive interest on the plant floor. Until we put the display up it was not uncommon to see 160 minutes of shift downtime. Now that the operators can see the downtime in real-time it is down to just 10 or 12 minutes per shift. Also one of our production shifts just broke the all-time run rate for the line.S.T.Plant Engineer | International Glass Products Manufacturer
Having the XL800 production monitoring displays throughout our organization allows our production lines to visually monitor their own performance. At the same time, the remote monitoring of the data provides real time feedback to our 1st and 2nd level supervisors allowing them to react to changes in production throughput increasing our efficiency and reducing downtime.R.T.Manufacturing Manager | Tier One Automotive Supplier
We are totally satisfied with the XL800 installation. The XL800’s easily paid for themselves in the first couple of months we used them. With the XL800’s we are now able to easily identify slow cycles and quickly correct the problems that cause them. Throughput is up!M.T.Controls Engineer | Global Braking Components Manufacturer
When we installed the XL800 displays showing target and actual production rates, the target for one of the lines was inadvertently set higher than was planned. One of the engineers set the target to 180 pcs/min for a part that was scheduled for 140 pcs/min. A few hours later when the plant manager glanced at the display, he was amazed to see the actual performance at 178 pcs/min. The line was running at 127% of plan simply because the goal was there! The XL800 display showed us that our team members can outperform our own expectations. After we stated visual management using the XL display the lines are showing record productivity numbers.A.C.Manufacturing Consultant | Manufacturing Consulting Firm
