Case study: TRIUMPH BUSINESS SYSTEMS

Date:

Ball bearing system is a ‘triumph' for Atkin Automation Steel storage systems and filing cabinet manufacturer Triumph Business Systems(TBS) has been producing high-quality filing products at its Merthyr Tydfil site for over fifty years, and turned to Atkin Automation when it was felt that its slide production line needed to be made more efficient. TBS has been manufacturing slides for filing cabinets since the 1960s, but these were the traditional wheeled slides, and the company wanted to offer its highly competitive market the improved quality and performance provided by ball bearing slides. Although ball bearing slides were already used in heavier applications, the TBS team had been unable to find a company which could produce these in high volume at a low enough cost. In 1987, a development partnership with a supplier led to the launch of Triumph's own unique ball bearing slides. The manufacture of these slides, marketed as ‘Superglider' was based on extremely simple, and now ageing, automation for assembly and labour intensive manual operations for punching forming and finishing.
