Optimise your production process

Increase production efficiency

Do you want to optimise your production process?

  • Flexible production
  • Increased capacity
  • Lower production cost
  • Less waste

Or do you want to know what the possibilities are for making the process more sustainable or adapting it to higher quality requirements?

As a development partner, we think along and ahead in optimising by deploying high-end technical solutions

Optimise your
production process with 100% to 300%

With our optimisation projects, we can increase production efficiency, sometimes by 100% to 300%.

Customised advice and solutions offer many opportunities for increasing capacity and efficiency at all levels. Our clients are often positively surprised by the possible solutions we offer them.

Optimisation project

How does an optimisation project work?

Together we dive into the current production process. We analyse where possible bottlenecks are present and where improvement is possible. We do this from different perspectives.

Our colleagues are experts in the field of Lean principles, mechatronics, precision mechanics and software. You are always directly in contact with one of our engineers. We provide clear and well-founded advice.

Possible advice could be:

  • Redesign of the workspace to promote productivity
  • Mechanisation or automation of (manual) actions
  • Optimising or replacing existing machines
  • Add inline quality control
  • Review of the current production method

We work closely together during the optimisation project. This way, we take into account all wishes and possibilities as early as possible. When considering the options, we will calculate the required investment and ROI (return-on-investment) in order to take any follow-up steps responsibly.

Does the advice match the wishes and expectations? Then we draw up an action plan. Together we look for the most suitable party to further develop or follow up the advice. In many cases, STT Products can also be of service here. As a development partner we optimise the process at your desired pace.

In pratice

Optimise your production process:
Zero-defect manufacturing for Plantronics

The former Plantronics from Emmen, manufacturer of wireless headsets, wanted to develop and market a smaller product to strengthen its competitive position and increase its market share.

The existing, larger product had a production failure rate of 10-15%. This product was assembled entirely by hand at production locations in Southeast Asia. The renewed expectation is that a smaller more critical product would show a much higher failure rate. Continuing with the current production method was therefore not an option. It was decided to accept this challenge by STT Products.

We have been doing business with STT to our satisfaction for years, my experience is that STT works very customer-oriented, comes up with innovative ideas on how to solve technical problems and then implements the solutions robustly. Their strenght is the ‘In-house manufacturing of Parts’, which makes them fast and flexible in solving problems. We now have several machines or parts of machines in production that are running to our satisfaction.

The cooperation of STT is very valuable in our innovation projects. In these kinds of projects, collaboration, prototyping, testing, learning and taking the next steps in an open and honest collaboration is of great importance. STT has fulfilled this in a very good way.

At Quooker we have traditionally made our own prototyping tools and production machines. We are now working together with other machine builders. STT is the first party with whom we build machines that we did not dare to think of ourselves. This makes it refreshing to work with STT’s resourceful engineers on our production challenges.

As a manufacturer of contact lenses, we are constantly looking to improve, accelerate and optimise our production processes. The employees of STT have a great passion for technology and are the right partner for us to help with creative brainstorming, making test setups and realising machines.

A production process can often be optimised in various ways. How do you choose where to optimise? And what method do you use? We are happy to share our knowledge with you.
