MiniTec helps you reduce costs with the Kanban system.
Low inventory and loss prevention are continual challenges of series production. These goals can be reached by simple means using consumption-controlled material handling methods according to the Kanban principle. MiniTec offers a wide variety of profiles and components for building the perfect workstation and workplace system. With the Kanban system accessories, the possibilities are endless.
In this range of products, you'll find roller carriers, roller bars, conveyor rollers, roller strips, roller brakes and brake plates, clamps and brackets, flange bearings, ball rollers, and more. Kanban system accessories are available to not only make your workplace system more versatile but safe, too.
In this, the parts required in production by the consumptive positions in the production cycle are requested by a simple Kanban card from the upstream step. Normally the card is located at the material and triggers a production order when reaching the minimum inventory. To ensure the consumption-controlled production and therefore the minimization of inventory, no order can be started without this Kanban card.
Provision of the products is done directly at the point of consumption in so-called Kanban shelves. These shelves are equipped with inclined small roller conveyors, which transport the containers or products to the receiving station by gravity. Shelf stocking is done from the rear. The size of the shelves is depending on the supply at the workplace determined according to Kanban rules.
So that the containers can be transported securely and protected into the shelving, the incline of the roller conveyor can be simply adjusted. Brake blades are available to prevent impact damage and are easy to install. The use of these brake blades is especially necessary for heavy weights.
We supply all required components for the construction of custom-built Kanban shelves.
Our KanTainer (part no. 32.0870/0) is particularly suitable for the management of small parts according to the Kanban principle.
