Tooling Up for Efficiency: Optimizing Mass Quantity Window Production

To deliver exceptional efficiency for your mass quantity window order, we leverage a simple pragmatic workflow that is not advanced tooling but streamlined workflows with more of the basic tools running at the same time. Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) machines may be automating the cutting, drilling, and shaping of window components at other facilities – but we believe the small bit size and small spindle size hinder accuracy – and we’ve shown it in high volume production.  We solve for more throughput with more talented craftsmen using machinery that hasn’t changed since the 1890’s.  Precision and repeatability come from a careful eye on each step of the process that a computer simply doesn’t have.  This ensures quality wages in our human run shop and developing a legacy of wisdom and experience in our employees.

Jigs and Fixtures Save the Day:

Custom jigs and fixtures hold window components in place during cutting or assembly, streamlining the process. This allows our skilled craftspeople to focus on building details while increasing speed.  Beyond the tools themselves, our meticulous workflow management is key to delivering your mass quantity windows on schedule. We don’t even use computers for this!  Our production books are produced in quaduplicate – and verbally and visually checked off by hand to pencil at each stage of production or delivery.  Everyone knows how to use a pencil, and it eliminates battery wase from landfills tongue-out.  Seriously, the tactile joy of crossing off pieces delivered is a match to our highly detailed shop drawings.  We builders are visual and tactile creatures, not software pixel pushers.  Our foreman is totally comfortable with all your photographic stage documentation to ensure checkoffs in your modern construction management software, we’ll definately participate to meet your needs – but we won’t be creating any timeline or software glitches on our part!

Detailed Project Planning:

We will be requiring materials deposits and multi stage payment plans in our contract.  Our products are not all or nothing and the more we all minimize risks in our contracts the more we can work together harmoniously.  Planing production accordingly we can safely allocate resources and order sufficient raw materials to keep from hindering production speed.  That deposit we requested in contract maintains a robust inventory of the high-quality lumber and other materials to keep us on schedule.
