‘‘Tighter control of the manufacturing process at Cavitech’’


Complex Injection Moulding

CaviTech serve the global industry with complex injection moulds. Based in Cleveleys they design, manufacture and validate mass production mould tool solutions for high volume sectors.

“Our company was growing and needed support”

CaviTech had previously been using an old system that needed updating as they needed better management information to aid the decision making progress. With this in mind they decided to invest in a Production Control System. Keen to select a package that was right for them they established some requirements for the new system; evaluation of internal performances of the production cycle, an ability to meet delivery schedules, and to improve control of the manufacturing process.

“A Painless Implementation”

After evaluating a variety of Production Control Software providers, CaviTech selected Redthorn’s flagship Aventa System which they found to be a cost-effective and reliable solution. A five user system with two Data-Capture Touch Screens was installed in 2006.Alistair Websdell, Mould Shop Manager, was pleased with the implementation stating that “the process was very well structured and was successful in providing a painless implementation”.

“Increased Efficiency”

When it comes to real benefits of the Aventa system, Alistair lists improved job costing, monitoring of job profitability, increase efficiency, and tighter control of the manufacturing process as the key areas.

In discussing which areas work best for him, Mr Websdell comments, “Time and Attendance has lots of information, especially when used with RedAlerts* and in job performance monitoring there is also easy access to current and old job information in a clear format”. He also adds that he likes the “flexibility in the way items can be ordered using the purchasing module”.

CaviTech use Aventa’s RedAlert notification system to track:
