Abstract: Industrial workbenches are designed to hold up to 750kg. They are made to withstand all the heavy duty tools and machines that are used on daily basis. With maximum load capacity we will be able to complete daily manufacturing tasks safely and with zero-safety risks. Plant layout is the most effective physical arrangement, either existing or in the plans of industrial facilities i.e. arrangement of machines, processing equipment and service departments to achieve greatest co-ordination and efficiency of 4 M’s in a plant. In machining fixtures, minimizing work piece deformation due to clamping and cutting forces is essential to maintain the machining accuracy. Fixtures are required in various industries according to their application. Fixtures reduce operation time and increases productivity and high quality of operation is possible. Continuous improvement is the backbone of any company. In the present study, improvement work was carried on to standardize the rotation base workbench, lateral guide fixture, and introducing pokayoke devices wherever necessary. By observing the assembly operations, some changes in design were suggested for workbench, new designs for fixtures for which there were no fixtures, introduction of pokayoke devices to avoid mistakes and the outcome of those designs after implementation were also studied. It is observed that rate of production increased from 4 tables/quarter to 6 tables/quarter which improved the labour productivity as well as revenue for the organization. The fixture reduced the overall cycle time by 5 minutes to assemble one motor.
Keywords: Workbench, fixtures, pokayoke, productivity, cycle time
