          Case Study: Huddig finds their complete solution at EdmoLift 2019-05-03

          Huddig is a leading company in developing, manufacturing and selling backhoe loaders on the Swedish market. One of the largest areas of usage for their backhoe loaders is for construction and maintenance work of railroads. Since there is a continuous focus of renewing and developing the products, Huddig has started to install additional equipment together with rail cradles in the front and back of their backhoe loaders, which enables the loaders to drive on rail.


          THE NEED TO DEVELOP THE ASSEMBLY LINE

          The previous installation process generated high inventory costs, a tough working environment for the assemblers and was a time consuming element in the assembly line.

          “When we assemble these machines they are moved along an assembly line. The line is pretty long and we needed to start installing the components already at the first station. This meant that we needed to have the components as inventory long before we could deliver a complete machine to the end customer. From an economic perspective we want to mount the components on to the machine as late as possible, because then we do not need to have them at home until the last stage of the assembly process. If we can delay the process of bringing in large and expensive components until the end of the value chain it is highly favorable as we then can avoid high inventory costs.”
