A Sustainable Future With ARaymond: Using Waste Management Technology


The Zontec Synergy 100 software is a fantastic method of reducing waste. This waste minimisation is achieved by decreasing the prevalence in defective parts during the manufacturing process. The charts produced by this software are reviewed each hour, in comparison to control limits, to identify any abnormal variations.

This way, the team can make any necessary corrections, in a timely manner, so as to avoid excessive waste. These waste reduction methods also help to avoid the over-adjustment of the process, so charts don’t go too far in the other direction. This means that unnecessary adjustments aren’t made, which could affect productivity.

For example, say a manufactured bracket is trending upwards in width. Synergy helps to detect problems like this, to improve ARaymond’s process capability, and to avoid the manufacturing of defective parts, that won’t fit an application.

This not only saves waste materials, but also money and time! This waste technology means that customers can rest easy knowing that ARaymond’s manufacturing processes are consistent and capable.
