A recent crib project – CAS Assembly Tooling and Services

A recent crib project was that our client wanted to reinstate an assembly line for a future product. CAS Assembly Tooling and Services were going to be in their element here! We were asked to go and assess the project and produce a solution for the required work. We got the production line plans and looked at each station individually. Due to this being an already established site with lots of tooling already purchased for various other projects we started with what spare tools that could be utilised. At the same time we were keeping in mind the critical spare tools that are required for the everyday running of the site.

By doing this step first we were then able to look and what gaps we had to fill with new products, this also allowed our client to understand the budget required making their investment as cost effective as possible.

What challenges did we face?

We were faced with some challenges along the way with delivery schedules due to a global component shortage meaning dates would slip. With knowing this we worked with the customer to produce a plan allowing us to keep the project on track. We then waited until the new equipment and tools were delivered.

Time was a big influence for this project, and as we had many stations to furnish out, we created a station standard form for the installation of hardware. This detailed everything required in each station and what level of network was required. Understanding our client’s needs allowed us to make improvements to the already existing dedicated tooling network infrastructure in place. We utilised the previously abandoned network cabinet and added a link between production areas. This enabled a more fluid tooling network environment.

This was such a successful project that it was noticed across other departments, that we received some very nice feedback for a happy customer.

Re-accreditation – First Aid Training

Re-accreditation – First Aid Training

Re-accreditation – First Aid Training

An ‘Emergency First Aid in the Workplace’ course took place today at CAS Assembly Tooling and Services as a re-accreditation exercise. 8 members of staff were in the office for a day’s training learning about the role of a qualified First Aider. First aid is the immediate medical assistance given to someone suffering from an accident, injury or illness. At CAS we recognise the importance of first aid training and colleagues may need first aid during work hours, so it is important that people are trained and equipped to provide first aid to their colleagues should they need to.

One of the first things we learnt today were :

The Three P’s of First Aid

  • Preserve Life. As a first responder to any situation, you first priority should be to preserve life. …
  • Prevent Deterioration. Do what you can to keep the victim in stable condition until medical professionals arrive.
  • Promote Recovery.

Why do we need First Aid Training?

So, from learning about a First Aid Kit and what this entails, to resuscitation, using a defibrillator, what to do if someone is choking, the recovery position and much more, our eyes have been opened.

Thanks to Nikki at DYB-Training Ltd we are now all sorted for the next 3 years and passed the exam at the end! We are all now qualified and we will have a certificate to prove it!

So, in answer to why do we need First Aid Training? – CAS now have 8 employees fully trained First Aiders!

How could the Chairless Chair benefit you or your employees? Do you work in a standing position or with your back bent?

If so, you are exposed to an elevated risk of developing back problems such as herniated disks or generic back problems.

In accordance with a study conducted by the German health insurance DAK, it has shown that three quarter of all professionals suffer from severe back issues.

How can you protect yourself from such health issues and how does it work?

In order to keep your back healthy, doctors and scientists recommend switching between sitting, standing and walking positions.
