The global pandemic has created an urgent demand for essential healthcare equipment. Ventilators, in particular, have been a crucial component in saving the lives of those severely affected by the virus. Recognizing this urgent need, a local high-end manufacturer has redirected their production line to produce these life-saving machines, and they turned to PermaRoute to help streamline their efforts.
Rising to the Challenge
Switching production lines is not an easy task, especially when the product in question is as intricate and essential as a ventilator. The manufacturer needed to ensure that their factory was not just productive but also safe for their workers. With social distancing norms and safety protocols in place, optimizing the workflow became paramount.
This is where PermaRoute stepped in. With its versatile floor marking system, the manufacturer could quickly transform their production floor to cater to the new production requirements.
PermaRoute’s Role in the Process
- Safety First: With workers returning to the factory, PermaRoute markers were essential in marking out safe distances between workstations, ensuring that the staff could maintain social distancing while working efficiently.
- Efficient Workflow: The varied range of PermaRoute markers, including shapes, joins, numbers, and letters, allowed the manufacturer to create clear paths for movement. This not only reduced the time workers spent navigating the factory but also minimized chances of errors or misplaced components.
- Colour Coding: The availability of markers in various colours meant that different sections of the production line could be colour-coded. This visual system made it easier for workers to identify their work zones swiftly, especially crucial in a setting where time is of the essence.
