During the winter cycle, steam is delivered to a heating coil within the fan section of the unit assembly
. During the summer cycle steam is delivered to the absorption refrigeration unit also contained within the unit assembly
MBN, which employs about 300 people, specialises in chassis and unit assembly
, as well as in cockpit and front-end installation.
have formed a joined venture, FC + Skanska Modular, to supply Atlantic Yards B2, the country's tallest modular building and, principals note, "a pioneering development that will help advance efficient, safe and sustainable off-site construction." B2 site work began in late-2012 as FC + Skanska Modular proceeded on a 150,000-sq.-ft, unit assembly
plant at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, about 1.5 miles from Atlantic Yards.
Standard features include: two-part hi-buildup epoxy finish on tank and skid; centri-clean air flow and filtration system for maximum use between service to filter, and easy access; quiet drive system with remote acoustical/baffled silencer; a skid-built unit assembly
to allow remounting as one-piece unit; and a custom trailer with "V" tail cutout for cleaner dumping.
This includes an expansion of the JSF major unit assembly
facility and a 4,600[m.sup.2] extension to the company's advanced forming and assembly facility (AFAF).
It also embodies Kobelco's 'unit assembly
system' which optimises the transportation elements (with no individual item heavier than 45 tonnes or wider than 3 m), complying with worldwide transport regulations and greatly facilitating assembly, reconfiguration and disassembly on site.
The group now comprises Newbury-based AWS Cemgraft which provides highly complex SMT and rapid prototyping of PCBs, Bedford-based AWS Jantec which offers repair and maintenance services, AWS Electronics (Stone) in Staffordshire, another contract manufacturing service provider specialising in large unit assembly
, as well as a lower-cost production facility in Slovakia, AWS Slovakia sro.
Louis has received $8 million in contracts from Raytheon Missile Systems to provide complex cable assemblies and an integrated firing unit assembly
for the tactical Tomahawk cruise missile.
manufacturing remains a viable option for unit assembly
because the total combination of project requirements add up to competitive total cost when balanced against lead-time issues, business model preferences and support flexibility options typically found offshore.
"But, in the case of the high-volume axle drive unit assembly
where cost is the key driving factor, we wanted to establish a stable process with no downtimes and reproducible high quality."
