U.S. Worker Productivity Shows Continued Growth In Q1

U.S. Worker Productivity Shows Continued Growth In Q1

Unit labor costs in manufacturing declined 3.5 percent in the first quarter of 2011, reflecting an increase in efficiency among U.S. manufacturers.- RTT News article
How are your manufacturing labor costs these days? Increasing, decreasing or remaining the same?

GSG will be bringing about 40 machines to Interzum - all are designed to reduce your labor costs. GSG equipment can improve labor productivity by either utilizing more automation or increasing piece rate capabilities.

Galkin EFS-1000 with X-5 flanger
The Galkin EFS-100 semi-automatic flange/serging station combines an automated turning arm, photo-sensors and automated indexing advancer to improve product quality without diminishing the operator's productivity. You're sure to get top quality finished panels with a strong X5 flange head without slowing the operator's pace as he would do to match this quality using manual methods. This automated method may also yield additional productivity gains by reducing inspection rejects and ergonomic benefits may enable operator to maintain pace longer with premium heavier quilt panels.

This is the first time GSG has brought this Galkin machine to Interzum so be sure to look for it in the GSG booth. It's only one of nearly a dozen mattress machines never shown at Interzum before.
