We introduced Archelis to a process that cannot be automated, and succeeded in both reducing fatigue from standing work and increasing efficiency!
MIYOSHI , Inc.
Capital: 35 million yen
Number of employees: 9
Business activities: Plastic injection molding, mold manufacturing
What challenges did you face before introducing Archelis?
Our company manufactures molds by plastic injection molding. We have been trying to automate our operations, but it is difficult to automate the process of removing products from the molding machine. This is because it is more efficient to have a person remove the product from the molding machine for small-lot molding. Therefore, such kind of work has remained standing in the same place, placing a heavy burden on the employees’ backs and legs.
We wondered if it would be possible to maintain the efficiency of such work and reduce the physical burden.
What did you think when you first saw Archelis?
My first impression was surprise.
To be honest, during the first demonstration, my employees and I thought “Oh! This is it!”.
We were very impressed actually.
Why did you decide to introduce Archelis?
Because we realized the benefits of using Archelis in actual work. Especially in work lasting more than one hour, fatigue was overwhelmingly reduced by using it.
Please tell us more about the effects of introducing Archelis.
If you work standing for more than one hour, you can expect an overwhelming reduction in fatigue if you use Archelis. And as the time increases to two or three hours, you will feel the effect even more. I highly recommend it for those who are engaged in work where they stand in the same place for more than one hour!
Since work efficiency can also be maintained, we were able to both reduce the burden and increase productivity.
