New machine

Optimising our drilling process

At Farrell, we have been putting a strong focus on lean improvements throughout Q1 of 2021, led by our Lean Coordinator, Cillian Farrell.

As the result of a recent internal project, our team has completely transformed the layout of our drilling operation within our Ardee-based manufacturing facility.

We were delighted to take delivery of a Weeke BHX500 which will complement our existing Homag & IMA drilling machines. In addition to this we have improved and optimised the flow of product through this area, as well as our programming process.

This is just one of many exciting lean projects which is currently ongoing at Farrell, as we aim to maximise the efficiency of our manufacturing process, and in turn, benefit our customers.

We look forward to sharing more of these improvements with you in the future. Stay tuned.
