Harmony Enterprises Inc. recently added on a new shipping addition to the building. This included installing a new overhead crane and covered loading dock. We also used the west side of the building for a new cell for the assembly of the Stainless Steel Horizontal Baler (SSHB). The popularity of the SSHB has been increasing. When the SSHB is used, our customers can generate a lot of savings though recycling and labor efficiencies.
Previously the assembly for the Stainless Steel Horizontal Baler had to be done in several different areas. Mikel Smith, Operations Manager at Harmony Enterprises Inc. explains, “Our old area was very labor intensive as the baler needed to be partially assembled, then moved and re-assebled, tested and then knocked down for shipping. Now the assembly for the SSHB is all done in one location with little waste.”
There are two employees who work on the assembly of the stainless steel horizontal baler. It takes about 80 labor hours to assemble one SSHB. The new cell for the SSHB allows for some new efficiencies, for instance, Mikel pointed out, “Once the unit is assembled with a tipper, the SSHB can be operated from a forklift without getting off of it until it is ready to make a bale.”
