Olson Intl. Monterrey Earns Recognition for QDC Project

April 1, 2010

Airbag safety-system manufacturer TK Holdings selected metalformer Olson International Monterrey as the winner of its supplier-development award called Quality Circles for Suppliers, Supplier Development Project. The award recognized the 45,000-sq.-ft. Monterrey facility, an operating unit of IMS Buhrke-Olson, for design and implementation of a new quick-die-change (QDC) procedure for a 200-ton press.

As a result of the project, die-change time dropped from nearly 2 hr. to a scant 50 min., and the team is hard at work with the intention of attaining 30-min. changeovers.

IMS-Burke-Olson also operates manufacturing plants in Arlington Heights, IL, and in Matamoros and Monclova, Mexico.
