New machinery will streamline processes and improve efficiency.
Having celebrated the 35 year landmark in 2011,Nercon Engineering &
strategizes for the
future to make the company’s conveyor equipment manufacturing processes more efficient.
The company designs and manufactures conveyor equipment for large food and
packaged goods manufacturers. This year, Nercon invested $ 1.25 Million in
state-of-the-art laser and machining equipment to streamline processes and
create repeatable component and parts production.
The new fabrication machinery recently installed in Nercon’s fabrication
facility in Oconto, WI, includes: Mitsubishi Laser, Milltronics Machining
Center, Almo Vibratory finishing machine, Almo Parts Washer and a Doosan Lathe
Turning Center. These machines significantly increase production throughput and
capacity. As a result, manual labor is greatly reduced, and parts and
components are produced faster.
The Mitsubishi Laser, Doosan Lathe and Milltronics Machining Center are
fully integrated with the company’s Auto CAD processes. This equipment is fully
programmed in the office. The technology provides extreme accuracy of parts and
eliminates reworking in the field. Also the sophistication of the CNC equipment
allows Nercon to produce components that might not otherwise be achieved.
Manual operations have been redesigned for high speed and highly accurate
CNC production. Dan Bickel, Operations Manager
at Nercon’s fabrication division in Oconto, WI, states, “Now that the
high-performance equipment is fully deployed in production, we’ve seen a 35%
increase in fabrication throughput.”
