Our team at PPA Group have designed production aids, as well as component holders and covers, for Toyota Europe to reduce assembly time and improve quality at their state-of-the-art engine plant in North Wales.
The photograph is of an actual cover designed and manufactured by PPA. The items were vacuum formed and everything was manufactured at our facility, from design, through to tooling and the production of the finished part.
The cover’s function is to protect against foreign objects entering the engine during assembly, it also holds components in place whilst on the production line, saving time, money and the risk of failure due to contamination later in the engines life cycle.
Through working in partnership with Toyota, these bespoke production aids have assisted them in their production process. PPA has the capability to design bespoke products to assist your business, please contact us if you require a similar service.
