Waltonen Heavy Industry

Heavy Industry

Heavy Industry is in the midst of a large growth period both from the work being done by the equipment and people that manufacture them.  Large scale infrastructure projects around the globe are putting a high demand for equipment pressures on manufacturers to produce products to meet the demand.  Putting pressure on the manufacturers is the new players with product offerings from emerging markets filling the void left by industry mainstay’s inability to meet the demand fast enough.  Furthering this dilemma is the demand for more safety, efficiency, high tech functionality and cleaner emissions from these machines.  Operational costs and asset tracking are amongst the two highest concerns of the ownership of this equipment and purchases of new equipment have expectations that these are met.

While the equipment owners try to get more out their equipment, manufacturers are trying to get more out of their factories.  More throughput gained by efficiencies such as adding automation into the manufacturing and assembly process, reducing reworks by performing variation and root cause analysis work at the critical areas and processes are just two of the ways being addressed to solve some complex issues.  Waltonen has a proven track record in solving complex variation issues, designing safe and efficient automation for a multitude of Industries. Our investment in technology, validated processes and training of our staff in the most up to date software allows us to serve our varied client base to help them become the most efficient they can be with either an existing product they are currently producing or a new product being developed for the market.  Waltonen is the right partner to work with given our strong history of helping many clients bring their products to market faster through collaboration and simultaneous engineering efforts.

Waltonen leverages its knowledge of the unique demands of low, medium and high volume manufacturing, investment in technology and training, recognition of market trends, new innovations across a multitude of industries and our highly skilled staff to meet the challenges of our clients and partner with them to help bring their product to market successfully and with the quality their customers demand.  The ability to get in on the ground floor of the product development and help nurture the design with our many technologies, virtual simulation and analysis tools allows Waltonen to add value to your Product development cycle from a very early stage.  We carry that value all the way to the plant floor in production by providing engineering solutions for lean, robust, efficient and high quality manufacturing systems for our clients.  From the beginning to end of your project, Waltonen has the passion, commitment, ability and tools to help you be successful.
