Our 90,000 square foot facility has been equipped and laid-out to optimize production flow.
Our equipment utilizes computer controlled processing to provide for the most reliable and consistent machine cycle repeatability ultimately providing the highest quality parts.
AT THE HEART OF IT ALL - MANUFACTURING
With 20+ years under our belt we have seen and tried it all. Lean Manufacturing, 5-S, Poka-Yoke, Just In Time, Theory of Constraints, Kaizen….which manufacturing strategy do we subscribe to? All of them. We have taken the concepts of each and incorporated them into our own processes.
Consistent quality requires diligent and disciplined process control. Equipment is maintained to specifications, processes are defined and documented.
We evaluate and fine tune the production process for each part we make and document it in detailed work instructions. These instructions include photos of the work space setup, press setup and part information. Also in the work instruction book for each part is a diagramed photo of our unique “Point and Touch” process. This process ensures that operators focus on a part’s critical characteristics.
STATE OF THE ART EQUIPMENT
We have 45 presses, from top manufacturing companies such as Sodick, Hiatian and Kraus Maffei. These presses range in size from 35 to 800+ tons. We have equipped most of them with robotics and can mold your part in virtually any material from Polypropylene to Polyphenelsulfate.
Our custom Conair raw material delivery system allows us to change material in any of our presses in less than a minute.
Our innovative workspace setup which stores tooling adjacent to the appropriate press in conjunction with our overhead crane system allow us to do a mold change in an astonishing two hours. A full job changeover can be done in 20% less time than standard and we easily do this more than 200 times per month.
MOST IMPORTANT - EMPLOYEES
PSI works to create a physically and emotionally comfortable environment in which employees feel valued and know the excitement of doing a great job for our customers. We provide extensive classroom and on-the-job training including problem solving, statistical process control, attribute charting, blueprint reading and material identification. They actively participate in decision making and have the authority to bring immediate top level management attention to issues affectiving quality.
All of these factors help keep our customers’ costs down with less labor,
less press-time and reduced inventories.
