Matador BV VHP-approved
Businesses and buyers purchasing devices want the assurance of making the right choice.
Matador and resellers of our devices want to provide their customers with that certainty.
The VHP mark offers:
√A description of the product characteristics
√Measurements of physical load and safety, by registered European ergonomist (Eur. Erg., CREE registry) and registered Higher Safety Experts (HVK)
√Indication of relevant OSH regulations and standards (Arbowet and NEN/NPR, CEN, DIN and ISO standards)
√Where possible: work circumstances using the offeredproduct compared to ‘traditional’ methods
Since 2006 Matador produces according to the Lean Manufacturing filosofy.
This method is applied at all departments in our company.
The target is to supply the right materials at the right time, at the right place with exactly the right quantity, without any defects.
The next processes of Lean manufacturing are applied:
√KanBan (stock control with cards instead of ERP)
√VSM (Value Stream Mapping) determine flowvalue
√SMED (single minute exchange of die) Switching the processes as quick as possible in order to make them quantity independend
√Cost price will not be dominated by batch quantity
√5S (select-Arrange-Cleaning-Standardize-Systematic Improvement) visualising the factory and processes with elimination of waste
Our way of thinking about products and raw materials has to change from linearly into circularly;
not from the cradle to the grave
but from the cradle to the cradle.
Matador Metal Technology is very aware of its function in our society.
This includes sustainable development, with a focus on the future, e.g. by using powdercoating rather than wet paint.
√No need of solvents (no Benzine / paint thinners)
√Full reuse of overspray
√Better corrosion resistant thus longer life products
√No solvents in degreasing, but PH-neutral soapy water with oil separators for continuous recycling of rinse water
√A completely closed system without emissions
√Arbo-friendly working conditions by a closed system with extraction
