How Can You Improve Productivity "On the Line"
In manufacturing, if you see a conveyor, there is a high probability that you will also see cable pull switches.
Cable pulls perform an important function in the emergency stopping of a line. A line may need to be stopped for any number of reasons; some of those reasons include, but are not limited to:
- Personal Safety
- Machine Safety
- Product Damage
- Package Controls
While cable pulls are often mandatory, they can potentially cause problems that could have a negative impact on productivity. Some of those problems include:
- Increased Installation Time
- Nuisance Trips
- Tension Adjustments
- Longer Cable Runs
- Locating Trip Locations
Wouldn't it be nice to have a more efficient cable pull switch?
