Project Scope:

GM Powertrain made the decision to invest $30.6 million to increase the output capacity of the 6 speed and 8 speed rear wheel drive automatic transmissions at their TTO facility in Toledo, Ohio.

The project included retooling existing equipment, installation of new CNC machines, Slide Conveyors, Washers and Lathes. It also required relocating existing equipment. IPS was contracted to perform the electrical portion of this project. This included demo of existing power feed lines, bus plug installation, new power feeds to equipment and installation of new data lines.

Challenges:

Work was completed under a serious of compressed schedules, made necessary to comply with GM’s production demands. IPS worked with GM to accommodate extremely tight working conditions and without disturbing production. Multiple trades were scheduled concurrently to complete work throughout the facility, and over multiple shutdowns in order to meet schedule constraints.

Project Scope:

Autoneum is a globally-leading supplier of acoustic and thermal management materials for automobiles.  The firm develops and produces multifunctional and lightweight components and systems for noise and heat protection necessary for vehicle comfort.  In September 2011, Autoneum began new construction of a 106,500 SF manufacturing facility in Oregon, Ohio.

IPS was contracted to install the presses at the new facility, and to complete the infrastructure associated with the mechanical and electrical systems required for operation of the presses.  Equipment installed by IPS includes:  compressors, dryers, boilers, chillers, economizers, chemical treatment systems, controls, and power wiring.  IPS also installed steam condensate, compressed air, and chilled water piping; and potable, non-potable, and dye-release systems.

Challenges:

Through outstanding team work and time management, IPS was able to have all the process systems operational and functional within a six-week period in order for Autoneum to begin cycling presses for production.  Since completion of this new facility in Oregon, Ohio, Autoneum has now become the only plant in North America that develops and produces the one-of-a-kind lightweight component for vehicles.
