Henkel wants its customers to save money. That’s why the leading provider of industrial adhesives and sealants also offers engineering services aimed at reducing costs for manufacturers. From plant surveys to on-site workshops, Henkel’s engineering services have already helped hundreds of companies improve their manufacturing processes, reduce costs, and enhance product performance and reliability.
Henkel’s cost reduction plant survey involves a detailed evaluation of the customer’s manufacturing process. Performed by an adhesives and sealants specialist, the survey is designed to help companies identify potential cost savings and process improvements. The specialist will tour all production lines, as well as any sub-assembly areas, to document cost reduction opportunities. Once complete, participants receive a thorough audit of their assembly operations, a written report detailing all identified cost saving opportunities, a formal cost analysis for each recommendation, as well as recommendations for the implementation of process improvements.
On-site technology workshops
Henkel also offers modular training programs that are conducted by an adhesives and sealants specialist at the customer’s facility. After consultation with a Henkel representative, each program is customized to meet the plant’s specific needs (i.e., duration of the workshop and topics). Specific topics vary, and can include bonding, retaining cylindrical parts, form-in-place gasketing, curing equipment, threadlocking, potting and encapsulating, thread sealing and dispensing equipment. Participation in the workshop can help attendees learn how to automate manual processes, increase process efficiency, reduce work-in-progress and manufacturing costs, improve throughput, increase quality and reliability, and consolidate adhesives.
These workshops are ideal for process engineers, manufacturing engineers, design engineers, assembly operators, quality personnel, safety and materials handling personnel, purchasing agents, managers or anyone involved in reducing costs or continuous improvement.
