Join us for our next Explore the Floor at…
GE Transportation, a facility dedicated to remanufacturing engines in Grove City is a 246,000 square-foot state-of-the-art facility that employs 400 people. It’s not your traditional manufacturing facility, but a “brilliant” factory -- a technology-enabled plant where workers work smarter, faster and more reliably.
Hundreds of machines now have sensors to monitor operations and productivity, identifying potential problems before they occur. The maintenance model is based on dynamic data to head off problems, keeping machines operating and reduced downtime by 20%. It created a system that operates on real-time needs.
The future is now at GE Transportation. Join us as we learn more about their advanced systems and processes and tour the factory floor.
