Background

A leading manufacturer of specialty-coated webs wanted to build a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility to increase throughput and produce multiple products using existing equipment. Future product considerations also needed to be incorporated into the design.

Approach

To increase software development efficiency and reduce required startup time, Foth developed common program procedures for various equipment. Solutions were designed to accommodate space constraints as well as future equipment and products. We also maintained the project schedule to meet market product delivery dates.

Results

Foth developed a new production method that streamlined our client’s manufacturing process, increased production speeds and reduced costs.
