Why the Eton System?
The aim wasn’t to produce more. The aim was better utilization of existing machines and with better utilization reduce manpower. The same amount of plastic details could after the installation of an Eton System be produced by half of the staff.
The Eton System was gradually installed between 2007 and 2011. It includes 11 workstations. The system handles automatic loading of plastic clips in boxes, transport, and storage of boxes and unloading boxes. It replaces manual transportation, a lot of heavy lifting, and forklifts. The managing team at Inca Plast has described the ergonomic benefits for the staff as “tremendous”.
Last but not least. Installing a system from Eton saved a lot of space for Inca Plast. They could expand their business without extending the factory. Ten years after the Eton System was installed the factory now is growing. This time it is due to really good business – and Eton Systems has played a role in the growth.
