Before Improvement
Improvement Effects

 Past problems     

In case of an air cylinder

Because movement of the air cylinder was unstable, syrup was put on the doughnuts unevenly.

A worker had to add syrup by hand to doughnuts that did not get enough syrup.

Why wasn't the movement stable…

 After installation of an ELECYLINDER®     

In case of an ELECYLINDER

The ELECYLINDER consistently operates at a preset speed, which makes the amount of syrup on each doughnut the same.

Because of this, workers do not need to add syrup by hand.

Why is movement stable…


Labor Cost
$12 / hr
Annual operation days 350 days / year


Labor cost for adding syrup manually

 In case of an air cylinder  

1 hour/day x $12/day x 350 days = $4,200.

 In case of an ELECYLINDER  


Annual labor cost savings is $4,200 because the additional manual work of 1 hour / day is eliminated.
