The client for this project is Donaldson Company. They have nearly 12,000 employees worldwide specializing in the production of filters and filter readers that are used in many industries. This project took place at Donaldson’s Waterloo, Iowa facility.
The Capstone team has been tasked to update their oldest and least changed Mechanical Air production line from a batch process to a single-piece flow. The current line utilizes too much overtime to meet demand, and Donaldson would like us to solve that without the addition of more operators. Donaldson wants to consolidate space to make room for new product lines. They will use our changes made and consider it when updating other lines in the facility.
