Due to the compact dimension of this product, assembly can be awkward with many of the heavier components being assembled at low level.
The team were tasked to design a height adjustable assembly jig, enabling automated machine movement through the HR10/12 production line.
This year's team reviewed the assembly process and decided the best way to improve the lean credentials of the line would be to design a height adjustable table to support the machine whilst being assembled and an engine/power pack assembly crane attachment to help assemble the heavier components.
