The Packaging Challenge

A leading medical device manufacturer was looking for a way to improve its workstations to boost efficiency in its packaging workflows.

The New-Tech Solution

After evaluating the customer’s goals, New-Tech put together a 3-D drawing that showed how the proposed workstation with proper components would improve productivity and workflow.  The modular design also made it easy to reconfigure the workstation over time as business needs change.

The new workstations were equipped with:

  • Overhead digital cameras to document that every shipment is complete
  • Adjustable lights and magnifiers to inspect and document tiny serial numbers
  • Corian® work surfaces that were built to last and withstand abuse from metal trays
  • Compact wiring troughs to keep the work surface clear
  • Surface-mounted scales to eliminate lifting and moving orders

New-Tech believes that good design is a collaborative process that begins with a discussion on the goals the customer is trying to achieve in productivity, workflow, and footprint.

The Customer Results

The customer identified a significant increase of 35% in the workflow as a direct result of the new workstations.
