Ergonomics on Your Paint Line

picture of Load unload stationIntelliFinishing is wrapping up a successful project with Raytheon.

Raytheon selected IntelliFinishing for the following reasons:

  • System had to fit into very small footprint
  • Safe and easy to load and unload parts (Watch video )
  • Part data tracking and reporting
  • Recipe for each part

IntelliFinishing paint lines may not be a good fit for you. However, if your current parts vary in size and thickness, your processes for finishing have changed, or you would like to ensure consistent quality, thencontact us to schedule a discussion.

Kasa Fab vs. Kasa Controls

On April 25th, Kasa Fab played Kasa Controls in a softball game. Kasa Fab designed the trophy for the event and since they won the softball game, they get to display the trophy in their lobby. trophy

 

Participating in the event were our guests from Kasa Anlagen, which is our joint venture company from India. Even though Pritesh and Madhukar have never played softball, they picked up on it quickly since cricket is their international sport and is similar to baseball. We did have to convince them to use the gloves to catch the balls.

Pritesh and Madhukar are the first of the engineers from India to train on the way Kasa Controls performs work in the automotive industry. Upon completion of their training, Kasa will be able to provide services to large automotive customers, like GM, Chrysler, or Ford in India.

Dan Stutterheim, President of Kasa, recently presented,Elevate Your Communication, at a GEAPS (Grain Elevator and Processing Society) meeting in Hays. The presentation is a 45-minute introduction to PCM®, Process Communication Model®.

 

Kasa has gone through extensive training on employee motivation, engagement, and personalities. The tool we use is called the Process Communication Model® and is used by NASA, schools, and Fortune 500 companies. We've found it to be very accurate and very effective, so much so that we have certified trainers on staff that perform the training both in-house and for our customers. We'd be happy to share more about it if you're interested.Contact us about PCM training or an introductory seminar.
