Busch, LLC, manufacturer and retailer of vacuum pumps, compressors and blowers with a reputation for reliable high-performing vacuum products, this week announced plans to build a new 44,000 sq. ft. building in Austin, Texas. The new facility will offer single piece flow re- manufacturing with four flow line capabilities, processing 16 modules per day from disassembly to testing. It also has the potential to serve as a distribution hub for pumps and parts.
Some upgraded features of the building include additional space, a training center, a fully exhausted disassembly area and visual production planning by way of large screens in each area tracking actual movements in the flow lines. Additionally, the new facility offers climate controls for the production area and process measurement capability of all hard parts. A visitor walkway will allow visitors to view the production area without entering it, and customers will be able to track their repairs via the web in real time.
Additionally, the entire workflow of the building is in line with the seven steps of flow line production: purge and de-systemize, disassembly/hot wash, blast, presentation, assembly, frame assembly, and testing.
