Keeping it Clean
RoboVent Posted 06/30/2010
Nearly two years ago, the Metaldyne Tubular Products plant in Hamburg, Michigan faced a dilemma present in many forming, fabricating and welding plants. What to do about weld smoke? Effectively capture and filter it at the source with an investment in new technology that yields a cleaner plant, or continue using older or outdated filtering equipment and continue to pay for regular plant cleanings.
At Metaldyne Tubular Products, the decision was made based upon a simple observation and a company policy to always look for ways to raise the bar and improve operations, according to Butch Bennett, Program Manager at Metaldyne Tubular. “Our air quality reports were very favorable but our plant walls and machinery were getting dirty,” he said.
Metaldyne Tubular Products management made a decision to invest in new air filtration equipment to help improve employee comfort, keep the plant cleaner and save money on plant cleaning expenses, and that’s what they did beginning in 2001.
