VAC Corporation (formerly Ted Davis Manufacturing) is a manufacturer and major worldwide supplier of disk drive components. Approximately 200 persons are employed at this facility. Over a six month period process changes and equipment modifications were instituted. These changes were accomplished using a team approach (management, quality control, production, procurement, environment and safety all represented).

 

Improvements

In 1992 Freon TMS was the chosen cleaner (3500 - 4000 pounds of per week). With equipment modifications and process changes this system was eliminated and two aqueous cleaning lines were installed.
