“The support and advice received from Phoenix Mecano throughout the project was very professional. I also thought the LEAN Live Workshop at Phoenix Mecano was great. We have learned a lot, which will also benefit future projects.”

step one

Initial situation

For more than 70 years, the customer needs of Bieri Hydraulic AG have been the focus of all products and new developments. Industry-specific solutions and profound knowledge in the field of micro and high-pressure hydraulics make Bieri Hydraulic AG internationally successful. Best quality and absolute reliability of the products are top priority. To be able to guarantee this, the assembly workplaces are already designed according to the specifications of Lean production.

step two


With the further development of the axial piston pumps, the specification was to design the required assembly workstation in such a way that it would fit into the existing lean processes. For example, the new product was also to be produced in a one-piece flow in the future. Optimum assembly throughput with the shortest possible lead time was the specification at the start of the project. In addition, for quality assurance purposes, each axial piston pump was to undergo a function test, which would take approx. 4 minutes. The aim was to be able to complete the final assembly of a pump within this time frame. The challenge in this project was to be able to complete the assembly process absolutely error-free in 4 minutes in order to be able to test the function of the previously assembled axial piston pump at the same time.
