To maintain the highest international quality standards demands ongoing process optimisation. Sanjin, the joint venture of Bucher Emhart Glass in China, has successfully modified workflows to reduce error rates and increase efficiency. This is a distinguishing feature of the world’s leading supplier of advanced technologies for manufacturing and inspecting glass containers.

  • Standardised workplaces with specified workflows enable efficient, error-free assembly of components.
  • The assembly shop layout was redesigned to accommodate these efficient workflows.
  • Employees test the quality of their work themselves and identify potential improvements.
  • Modern test benches capture data enabling ongoing process and product optimisation.
