P17709: ArcWorks Bottle Wrapping Station

Project Summary Project Information

ArcWorks provides manufacturing services including hand labeling and packaging operations. The current process for hand labeling has very stressful steps and can only be done by highly skilled workers, resulting in a slow turnover between products. Within the current process, errors in packaging lead to large time delays.

The goal of this project is to analyze the current process steps in order to make the process easier and faster while still producing a hand-labeled look. The expected result will allow for a faster method to find errors as well as reduce operator fatigue and minimize repetitive stress injuries while adhering to all OSHA guidelines. The new process will increase production and will be easier to implement and teach.
