Visual process control is a valuable tool for improving plant layout and department setup in order to gain efficiencies and improved communication.   You can talk about visual controls, but of course it’s better to see them in action.  Holland 1916 is hosting our March meeting with a brief overview of their visual process control and communication, and a facility tour to demonstrate these principles in action.

About Holland

Holland’s North Kansas City facility is the home for two companies from the Holland 1916 family – Holland Nameplate and Holland RFID.  Holland 1916 is headquartered in Liberty, MO along with Holland Integrated Metal Solutions and Holland Interface Solutions.

Holland Nameplate is an ISO 9001-2008 certified manufacturer of chemically etched and screen printed stainless steel and aluminum nameplates, data plates and control panels.  Our customers are world-wide OEM manufacturers – many of which are Fortune 500 companies.  Industries that we serve include:  oil & gas, valves, process measurement equipment, lifting slings, transportation, and medical.  Holland Nameplate has an industry leading 5 day lead-time for non-stock items.

Holland RFID provides custom manufactured and highly rugged RFID tag solutions intended for the most hazardous environments. Holland’s durable RFID tags can be found on assets in industries that require unique, ruggedized inventory and asset tracking solutions, such as oil & gas, construction, and mining. By embedding RFID transponders into metal or high-density synthetic carriers, RFID can now be used in extreme applications that would quickly destroy off-the-shelf RFID tags or traditional bar code labels.

Limited to the first 45 people to sign up.

Cost is $15 for members and $25 for guests. Guests may attend 2 meetings before having to join as a member.  Sign up today at BY CLICKING HERE or contact Donna Gordon at 816-304-7958, or donna@kcmn.org
