Staytite have implemented a new Kanban for market leaders Teekay Couplings at their production facility in Milton Keynes. This will consist of around thirty parts mainly fully threaded socket caps. Staytite have agreed an initial three year contract to supply Teekay. Managing Director Andrew Black said he was absolutely delighted with the agreement and is looking forward to working in partnership with Teekay Couplings.
Staytite have implemented a new kanban service for a leading cross channel rail operator. Part of this implementation consisted of a stock rationalisation programme that took existing part numbers from six hundred and eleven to four hundred and fifty two, with the added benefit of cost savings this brings for the customer.
Staytite are delivering twice a week to the site across five different locations ensuring stock levels are maintained at all times. The kanban is running our tried and tested two bin system with full stock traceability of all parts giving the customer greater confidence regarding quality.
Staytite have secured the first approval in the UK for the use of the “Shakeproof Bolt” with a leading rail infrastructure company. The Shakeproof Bolt will be used in conjunction with a standard full nut and washers. The application has resulted in a re-design of the stretcher bar so it can be successfully mated to the track using the shakeproof bolt, washers and full nut, thus eliminating any loosening or creep due to constant vibration. Approval was gained on September 13th with full-scale implementation due in quarter one 2014. This is a huge step forward for both Staytite and the customer regarding rail applications and is very much a “first of its kind”.
