Reinventing Accuracy, Efficiency, and Safety with the 2021 Innovator Impact Award Winner – Hatch Stamping
No stranger to the awards stage as a previous Transformer Impact Award winner, Hatch Stamping Company has proven over the last year that they are the definition of the word innovator.
Simply put, technology and innovation are baked into the core of why Hatch Stamping Company exists. That’s why they were able to leverage the power of Plex IIoT in conjunction with Mach2 so well. This allowed the company to serialize piece production and generate labels for each individual part made. Scanners automatically checked dimensions and record parts for traceability across the manufacturing process, resulting in greater accuracy and increased customer visibility.
Hatch Stamping for Transformation: Hatch Stamping, a global manufacturer of highly engineered metal stampings and assemblies for the automotive industry, received this year’s Business Operations Transformer Impact Award. The company has used Plex to drive significant operational improvements across its 13 facilities located in the U.S., Mexico and China, including a 15% reduction in machine downtime, a 1% drop in scrap as a percentage of sales, and a 50% increase in waste elimination submissions from employees – completely transforming the business. Hatch Stamping’s push to transform also applies to the communities in which it operates. Hatch supports school robotics programs, job fairs, apprenticeship programs, and a variety of charitable initiatives.
