Lincotek Medical recently installed new state-of-the-art equipment to respond to increasingly demanding customer requirements in design and dimensional specifications. The company seeks to deliver complete integrated supply chain solutions based on modern lean processes and equipment.
The investment is an important addition to the company's comprehensive set of capabilities.
Following the acquisition of the Bologna facility (formerly Nanosurface Industries) and the targeting of significantly reduced throughput times and improved efficiency and reliability, Lincotek Medical launched a profound manufacturing efficiency program. This began with the implementation of lean initiatives and redefinition of the layout/flows in production areas.
Next, the company will invest in new multitasking machining equipment. Capable of all the steps in the machining process, it works in accordance with a "done in one" philosophy, handling an entire process from the bar to the finished part.
“This important investment,” said Gennaro D’Andrea, General Manager of Lincotek Medical Division, “together with strong actions we are taking to improve efficiency of implant and instrument production - acting on both organization and equipment sides - will play a crucial role in increasing manufacturing capabilities and reducing lead times. We are firmly motivated and working hard to make Lincotek Bologna a cornerstone of our Integrated Supply Chain Solutions.”
