Manufacturing Of Upholstery, Covering, Lining, Patterning
The Eton system for furniture industries is a flexible material handling system designed to eliminate manual transportation and minimise handling. It increases productivity radically, ensures an optimal working flow and provides time for adding value to your products.
Technically the system consists of overhead conveyors with individually addressable product carriers, automatically finding its way to the correct operation. It is monitored by a computer providing all necessary data for measuring and managing the process optimally. Furthermore, the system is highly flexible and can rapidly be modified to changes in the production line or the need for expansion.
MANUFACTURING OF UPHOLSTERY, COVERING, LINING ETC – UNIT BY UNIT
The Eton system transports all the pieces of one complete chair through the manufacturing process. An addressable product carrier takes all the pieces of one entire unit (i.e. for chairs – upholstery, covering, lining etc.) through the different steps of production. Operations are performed at individual workstations. The end result is a cost-efficient product, processed from pieces to completion.
- Load all the pieces in a product carrier.
- The product carrier with the pieces will be routed through the different operation steps.
- At every machine/operation the patented Eton chain will position the product ideally.
- Up on completion the product arrives to an unloading station. The empty product carrier returns to the loading station.
