“Our production process has improved considerably with the introduction of the LKE system, which shortens production time and increases quality. …”
Briggs Mono Director of Manufacturing
In view of the ever-increasing demand for the road-legal super sports car, the British production facility in the north-west of England is constantly looking for ways to improve production output. One of the most recent efficiency improvements was the introduction of a “warehouse on wheels” with a fleet of LKE SLC 600 trollies. These enable the kits to accompany the vehicles in the various construction phases. The benefits include shortening the time it takes to transport parts from the warehouses, improving build quality and reducing construction time.
Building the vehicle in small quantities places high demands on the optimum efficiency of the side loading of the production line, product protection and quality. The LKE trollies accompany the bare chassis and are fitted with sub-assemblies and looms that are pre-loaded with “subordinate parts”. As the chassis moves through the production process, the LKE trollies move with it. Once this part of the process is complete, additional pre-loaded trollies such as the drivetrain, fuel tank, braking system and body panels are added.
Rainer Kuhlwein; Briggs Mono Director of Manufacturing said:
“Our production process has improved considerably with the introduction of the LKE system, which has shortened production time and increased quality. The advantage is that the trollies are very maneuverable with their own system and can be connected to a trailer towing system that is highly precise and drives in perfect harmony even with a large number of other trollies.”
