Design of Tooling to Support the Recreational Boat Production Line
The recreational boat industry is a highly competitive market where product customization is essential. The partnership between Merkur and its customer has enabled the latter to implement the solutions best suited to its needs.
In the context of highly diversified products with a multitude of options, developing a unit flow and assembly line with short lead times is essential to maintain market leadership.
Merkur’s team takes pride in helping its customer launch new products every year.
Merkur accompanied its client in the production of a new range of recreational boats: Aluminium Pontoons and Boats.
In helping to understand and analyze its production line, Merkur was involved in the design of jigs. The purpose of these jigs was to position and hold the parts together during the assembly stages.
