At the recent annual meeting of Studer in Thun, the soon 100 year old company presented his organization and PULS concept to its worldwide sales network. Sales partner from all around the world were able to discover how passion used as a toolbox will help the company on the market.
The new S33 machine emphasizes that vision as this canalized passion allowed the company to further develops its products and wins new customers. Power through continuity is a good solution if based on strong basis. The new S33 is delivered with new frequency-controlled drives as standard. Thus customers can adjust the cutting speed continuously and optimally to the operation to be machined. To bring this machine on the market, Studer uses its PULS concept.
..and new PULS concept
Under that quite simple word, also a simple concept: Precision and Passion from Studer (PULS comes from the German words, don’t look for it in English). This true toolbox is a concept that drives the whole company based on three pillars: people, principles and tools. What is different here is that it is actually not only a concept but starts to be applied in the everyday life of every of the 700 employees of the company. In fact this is the challenge for 2010 for Studer, implementing the PULS wholly everywhere.
It has already well started
The ultimate aim of the concept is to change completely the way to work (when needed ) and to streamline and improve processes as well as motivate people. The company invested about 20 million Swiss Francs these last few years and this gives it a very powerful to build products.
The assembly of the new S33 machine passed through the “PULS-filter” and guess what? Changing some process and way to do things allowed the company to save about 40 hours on one single S33 assembly. When delivery time is crucial, this is a lot!
We will come back on the new S33 in a next issue of Eurotec… and we’ll also speak again about the PULS concept soon (it is too important to be left aside).
