Iron Casting – Terex Canica Model 2000

Terex Canica 2000 is a crushing impeller which is used to crush items into smaller sizes. Rocks, concrete chunks, and other hard items enter Canica via the feed tube. This application needed very specific engineering specifications: a] Iron casting with precise Cr control which contributes to the feed tubes high abrasion resistance and durability for this type of application. In fact, the main reason customer sourced this part from MES is because the previous supplier could not control Cr within 2%. b] Hardness of 53HRC + 10 HRC in as cast condition is also difficult to achieve without causing cracks. The process must have good and controlled cooling cycle to achieve the required hardness c] Paint – Application required coating which had to import from the US into China for prototypes but would be available for production. MES is utilizing its network of trading and supply chain capabilities to ensure […]

Valve + Coupler + Actuator

Following the acquisition, last year, of the valves and instruments company Salcon, MES Inc. become a supplier of Emerson Automation Solutions based in Mansfield, OH. MES has an outstanding record with Emerson in providing primarily Fluid Control Products (mainly valves) and was able to assist with the simplification of the otherwise complicated and internationally diverse acquisition process of a set of valves/couples/actuators for a plastics plant in the Sultanate of Oman. In this assembly, the valve controls the flow, the actuator controls the internal components of the valve and the coupler connects these two components to bear the weight of the actuator on the valve. The Emerson actuators had to be matched with couplers sourced in the UK from QK quickits, while the ball valves originated in Italy from RMT Valvomeccanica. The complexity of the project was accentuated by the unusual size of the components. The bolt circle diameter of […]

MES - The Uncertainty of NAFTA

The Uncertainty of NAFTA

MES Inc. decision to expand its operations in Mexico was related to our largest North American clients’ strategic approach to invest in the country. We have started shipments to Mexico in 2011 and by the winter of the same year we were already warehousing and serving our clients out of Monterrey.  We have been consolidating our presence in Mexico ever since and continue to add staff. About 20% of our business comes today from Mexico. MES Inc., like most of our clients in Mexico, is worried, not so much about the actual change in the provisions of NAFTA or by the potential withdrawal of the US, but by the uncertainty surrounding the issue. Because there is no precedent in the history of modern trade relationships where US withdrew from a trade agreement, nobody knows what to expect or the timeframe to expect it within. This is disrupting our clients’ strategy […]

Disrupting the Dominant Design in Distribution

Disrupting the Dominant Design in Distribution

Disrupting the Dominant Design in Distribution by Chris Caplice, Ph.D., Executive Director, MIT Center for Transportation & Logistics, Silver Family Research Fellow, Sr. Lecturer. Presented at the Supply Chain Forum, Friday, October 21, 2016 by the Center for Operational Excellence, Fisher College of Business, The Ohio State University   Caplice asserts that just as there is a dominant design for consumer products, so, too, is there a dominant design for distribution with an accompanying scenario for every design each being susceptible to five potentially “driving” forces for disruption that cannot be controlled or influenced, with each having indirect, ambiguous and unknown effects.  By asking what trends can disrupt the dominant design for distribution in the US, Caplice suggests there are five potential disruptive driving forces. Trend #1—Densification of Products. “This is the process of reducing product size while maintaining or increasing its value. Examples of densification include laundry detergent (shifting […]
