Foam Solutions for Crafts and Trades for more than 10 Years
Organisation & Storage
It’s easy to misplace tools during everyday use, and it then takes all the longer to find them later on. Our foam inserts help keep things organised from the outset. Having a predetermined arrangement for tools in the foam means they can be located fast and put away again just as quickly.
Storing items in foam also offers excellent protection against knocks and vibrations for particularly sensitive equipment. Customisation options make our foam solutions ideal for both cabinet and case inserts. We extend the service life of often expensive investments by protecting our customers’ tools in both stationary and portable containers.
Workflow & Process Optimisation
Our foam solutions help with numerous process optimisation and planning tasks. Foam shadowboards were originally used in the aviation industry.
Well-organised process workflows are vitally important in this sector. Dual-colour foams make it easier to spot when tools are missing, thereby preventing unfortunate accidents resulting from oversights such as inadvertently leaving spanners in a turbine.
This principle is also applied in many other areas and is ideal for everything from Kanban workflows to cutting-edge production involving 5S process optimisation. Our experienced consultants are happy to help you plan your foam inserts, tailoring them perfectly to your particular processes and way of working.
We handle even the smallest order quantities and production takes no time at all, which means repeat orders at short notice are never a problem either.
Usage in Kanban Processes
Usage in Processes
The idea of using foam to organise tools and materials comes from the aircraft engineering sector. It ensures that all the tools used to build aircraft each have their own place, production staff don’t need to hunt around for them and nothing gets lost. Today, the use of organisational systems like these is summed up in the 5S method. Originating from Japan, this methodology is a tool for keeping workstations and the areas around them clean and clear. The 5S method minimises the risk of workplace accidents and optimises working processes.
Usage in 5S Processes
Sort out and remove anything that is unnecessary to the activities at the workstation.
Make sure everything that is actually used gets its own dedicated and labelled place in line with ergonomic considerations.
Clean workstations from the ground up.
Make it standard practice to clear up workstations and make sure new objects don’t find their way into a workstation unless they are needed.
Discipline is essential if order and cleanliness are to be maintained. Once a home has been picked out for a tool, that’s where it belongs – for ever.
“Our Inserts protect People and Tools in Equal Measure.”
In addition to storing sensitive tools securely, our foam inserts also protect our customers’ employees from injuries caused by exposed cutting surfaces and sharp-edged or pointed items.
TECSAFE’s PE/POM foam solutions and cleanroom inserts help meet the most stringent occupational safety requirements.
