Changing times brings new thinking to GKN Wheels in Telford, as we passed a quality audit with a major OE customer. Planned for February 2020 & postponed due to plant closures at both GKN Wheels & customer due to the impact of COVID-19. The team in Telford looked for a way that enabled them to conduct the audit in a creative, forward-thinking way, which supported business continuity. Faced with challenges - it was imperative to maintain 2 way dialogue visibility of the manufacturing process across the entire production area. Using a live video, headphones & mic - the team held the meeting of up to 10 participants, based in their respective locations across Europe & conducted a comprehensive audit including disc pressing, rim manufacturing, assembly, paint through to despatch – including documentation, labelling & quality checks using continual live feed. 2 way communication was in place throughout the 4-hour audit. The ‘Virtual Audit’ was a first for GKN Wheels & our customer, pleased with the success of the day – The innovative approach & use of digital technology is likely to become a regular occurrence to keep in contact and utilise in others areas of the business. ...

Following an extensive testing programme, our Profi-Hub systems have demonstrated a remarkable two and a half times bearing life improvement. With a design patent pending on the new design, the systems have been designed for a minimum of 20,000 miles service at 20 miles per hour. Serviceability has also been improved, with a recessed grease fitting meaning there will be much less field damage and improving fitting access. The re-design has also enabled the system’s casting weight to be reduced by 15 pounds, improving the carbon footprint of each hub manufactured by 30 pounds of carbon dioxide. #ag #hubs #design #engineering #environmentalimpact #mfg #gknwheels ...
