Project Description:

The aim of this project was to contribute to the qualified growth of IGM, strengthening its competitive value, in order to reinforce its performance as a qualified supplier of technically complex moulds for the automotive industry. Thus, it intends to increase IGM’s production scale and enhance the quality of its supply through the application of lean thinking philosophy, valuing the quality and flexibility of processes and seeking to optimize them by eliminating waste and non-conformities and by eliminating activities with no added value.

This project ensures the creation of in-process inspections, integrating intelligent control systems through machine vision, which are the first step towards future application of assembly line concepts to the Bench’s process, creating workstations specialized only in assembly and tuning, reducing adjustment operations.
