One-Shot® Engine Beauty Cover

Why is this methodology so revolutionary?


the engine cover is made up of numerous pieces, assembled in several production islands.


this can affect the quality of work, more pieces to check means increasing the probability of error and production of scrap pieces.


the assembly of different pieces required more production phases and therefore more personnel to be employed both in the assembly work and in the control of all phases.


this affects the cost and the probability of production of scrap pieces.


the cycle time for creating a cover is 180 seconds on average.


this causes many problems for order management, because it is too long for today's production standards, negatively affecting production times.

Thus was born the revolutionary One-Shot® process!
