SMED for a Rubber Extrusion Line (7.000 € in prizes!)

Use SMED to reduce the set-up time in a Rubber Extrusion Line from 36 to 20 min

We have our first SMED challenge!

Our client is a company devoted to the production of sealing systems for the automotive industry. And flexibility is a must-have to stay competitive… As a result companies invest in enabling a quick set-up of their manufacturing lines.

This company has also been improving in this area, however now they would like to progress even more.

Can you help propose a faster setup process? Like pit stops in F1?

So … what are we looking for?

This challenge is looking for reducing the set-up times of the full rubber extrusion line with a reasonable investment in new tooling or equipment.

Do you have a solution?

If you have a good idea please help us solve this challenge … just consider than any proposed solution:

  • Needs to reduce the setup time under 20 min. … and with the lower effort.
  • Should require investments in tooling up to 52 K€.
  • Should be feasible!

Get a 6.000 € cash prize if you win or a 1.000 € if you are second finalist!
