Case Study: Automotive Industry

Challenge

One of our long-standing customers, a leading North American supplier to the automotive OEM market needed urgent help for their plant. A critical press was malfunctioning, which had serious consequences due to the strict supply chain requirements in today’s lean automotive manufacturing environment where uptime is crucial.

Meehan’s Industrial dispatched a team of certified millwrights with specialized automotive expertise to troubleshoot. It became evident that the root cause of the problem with the press was in the hydraulic system and related to a lack of secondary pressure. Meehan’s Industrial team made the necessary adjustments to the system and the press was back up and running.
