Former apprentice puts his stamp on more efficient manufacturing at EJOT UK.
The machine that Josh built
Former apprentice puts his stamp on more efficient manufacturing at EJOT UK.
The inspired thinking that engineering apprentices can bring to high-tech manufacturing businesses is perfectly illustrated in a project that has helped EJOT UK to improve the efficiency of one of its main production lines.
Josh Mozer, who joined EJOT UK as an engineering apprentice at the age of 16, has successfully completed a project to develop a unique machine which has improved productivity in the manufacture of LIEBIG heavy duty anchors. These precision-engineered modular components are structural elements widely used in construction projects throughout the world, with each one requiring an identification code to be clearly marked on the tube that encases the mechanical elements.
It is here where Josh’s deep understanding of EJOT’s processes and his proactive approach has made a significant difference. With no standard ‘off the shelf’ machine available to perform this code stamping process on a fast-moving production line, he was tasked with developing a bespoke machine that would be easy to use and put safety first by operations manager Simon Pearson.
With only a 15 second video clip of a similar machine available to help develop the initial concept, Josh set to work on designing a machine to meet the brief. One major challenge was to ensure the machine could stamp on all 360 degrees of the outer tubing, a factor that leant itself to a rolling system.
Once Josh’s design was approved by the management team, he coordinated the building of the machine in-house using custom-made materials and components, including liaising with a number of external suppliers.
Now installed and fully operational, the new machine enables the LIEBIG production line to run at maximum efficiency at a rate of one part every three seconds – with every heavy-duty anchor featuring a clearly stamped identification code. The future aim is to grow this machine into a family of operational units, to fulfil the growing demand.
Commenting on the project, Josh said: “I’ve always liked problem-solving, so this project was perfect for me! It’s been thoroughly enjoyable, and I’ve loved the challenge of ‘we need this machine, build me it.’ Having creative freedom in the project has been fantastic too, which is an aspect of this job I really appreciate, giving me the opportunity to apply everything I’ve learned since my initial apprenticeship.
“This started after I completed an NVQ Level 2 at the Skills Exchange in Castleford. I was selected for the two-year engineering apprenticeship at EJOT, which was amazing because only a handful of places were available at the time.”
With the support of EJOT UK to develop his technical knowledge and skills from day one of his apprenticeship, Josh is now a key part of the team. His engineering role includes a variety of roles including preventative and reparative maintenance, machining, research and development, welding and fabrication and prototyping.
Simon Pearson, Operations Manager at EJOT UK added: “We’re delighted with the contribution that Josh has made with this project. It has helped increase our production capacity for a product range that is renowned in the construction industry around the world. Josh has applied himself so well to create a machine that leads to more efficiencies in the production process, as well as making the process easier and safer for all members of the team.
“We value all our apprentices hugely as they are the lifeblood of a business like ours which is continuously innovating with new products and ways of working. The energy and ideas that apprentices and former apprentices bring is clearly evident in how Josh has handled this major R&D project, which is why we have asked him to mentor our latest apprentices who we hope can follow in his footsteps.”
EJOT UK currently has 10% of its HQ workforce benefitting from an apprenticeship programme in some form across the business, in areas including technical services, quality management, engineering and manufacturing. Qualification goals are both vocational and degree level where participants attend college or university on a day release basis.
“Bringing it together” – EJOT marks century of fastener innovation
The EJOT Group is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year with a future-focus on investment in new technologies and applying its wealth of experience and knowledge to drive innovative carbon neutral solutions capable of meeting today’s and tomorrow’s fastening challenges across all sectors serviced.
This forward looking approach to the next century will help to ensure its fastening solutions are fit for an era where sustainability takes absolute priority – a goal that is celebrated in the company’s anniversary message of ‘bringing it together’. As a provider of fastening systems for everything from the construction and refurbishment of buildings to the assembly of high strength, light-weight vehicles, EJOT is dedicated to unlocking the potential that its solutions have to, in turn, reduce customers’ carbon footprint.
It is a huge challenge and a positive opportunity that founder Adolf Böhl could not have envisaged in 1922 when he set up a nail shop in his workshop in Berghausen near Bad Berleburg, in the Siegen-Wittgenstein district of Germany. From these humble beginnings, the EJOT Group has developed and grown to become one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of fastening systems employing approximately 4,000 people in 35 countries – including many here in the UK at the recently expanded site near Leeds.
Fastening solutions that put sustainability first
Commenting on the centenary, Robert Hardstaff, Managing Director of EJOT UK says: “Reaching our 100th year milestone is a tremendous achievement and one that everyone around the EJOT world, past and present, can be immensely proud of. But to be growing and thriving after a century is also a reflection of family ownership, vision and a forward-looking approach, as well as the return on our continuous re-investment in the company and our people.
“Throughout its 100 year history, EJOT has always been proactive, looking ahead at ‘what next?’. Nowhere is this more apparent today than in sectors as diverse as automotive, medical and pharmaceutical, digital technologies, renewable energy and modern methods of construction, enabling the development of fastening technologies that contribute significantly to tangible carbon savings. Insights learned by working across these different sectors helps to facilitate change much more broadly.”
One fastening system in particular, EJOweld, is already enabling the automotive industry to reduce vehicle weight yet increase structural strength by providing a method for securely attaching light-weight, thin composite substrates to metal with great efficiency. Looking ahead, this fastening technology could even offer exciting potential for building envelopes to be created in new ways too.
The cross-pollination of ideas like this through different sectors, EJOT believes, is crucial for the innovation process and helps to explain why the company continues to make a valuable contribution to the sustainability goals of engineers, OEMs, product designers, architects and procurement specialists.
This drive for materials and finished products to be more sustainable puts a huge responsibility on fastening systems manufacturers like EJOT to ensure fixing/attachment challenges provide solutions that collectively drive efforts to reduce carbon emissions. That’s why the EJOT Group continuously invests in the technology that enables it to be ‘tomorrow’s solutions provider’, particularly the increasing technological dynamics of digitalisation, the emerging change in mobility and making climate change compatible for all.
EJOT’s commitment to staying at the forefront of these technological changes is illustrated by its recent investment at the UK HQ and manufacturing centre in Leeds, and more globally through its near term focus on the Americas and Asian markets. Proactive steps such as these ensure technology leadership and innovative strength remain key drivers of the success of the EJOT Group.
Re-investing for a low carbon future
EJOT is rising to the global challenges by helping customers as it has done throughout its long history through the development of future-facing technologies. Continued re-investment for product development through R&D, incorporating sustainability and environmental credentials, and ethical responsibility are part of any design brief and the resulting fastening solutions are already making a difference.
Robert continues, “As the EJOT Group progresses towards climate neutrality, through our products we will unlock the great potential for transforming our economy from fossil combustion to more climate-friendly technologies. For example, we are providing solutions for sectors such as electromobility, which will demand screws and joining elements including battery technology and lightweight / mixed construction methods for the body shell and their charging stations.
“And in the existing built environment we will be able to make a transformational difference. Our fastening systems will increasingly help to improve the insulation of buildings, support the creation of solar plants, and enable more resource-efficient industrial lightweight construction to become the norm – all supported through broader online and digital specification tools, such as prognosis and calculation software, allowing customers to more easily dimension their components correctly and thus prevent waste.”
‘Bringing it together’
Robert adds: “As important as they are, the products that facilitate low carbon construction and manufacturing are, however, only part of EJOT’s sustainability strategy. The way we operate, our values, our partnership approach with customers and suppliers and our global outlook matter too. That’s part of our holistic approach to sustainability, a vision which will support the construction sector to move forward environmentally, socially and economically.”
The EJOT Group has encapsulated this vision with a 100th anniversary message “bringing it together”. The company continues to be a family business, maintaining its independence from capital markets so it can continue to pursue its own strategies, while developing advanced engineering solutions for a rapidly changing world.
As EJOT celebrates its 100th anniversary year, its re-investment in the future will continue to enable the development of fastening systems which facilitate greener buildings, products and technologies for the next century and beyond.
