As part of an ambitious business change programme, CPE Pressure Vessels appointed In-Comm Training and Business Services to deliver a Level 2 Certificate in Business Improvement Techniques. The entire company workforce comprising both office and workshop teams completed the qualification over 18 months, with a 100% pass rate. Focusing on problem-solving techniques using real-world examples, the course has helped foster a culture of Lean Manufacturing and Continuous Improvement across all areas of the business.
When CPE looked into NDE processes for volumetric examination of welds in 60mm thick 6Mo stainless, traditional radiography and UT techniques were not suitable. CPE therefore needed to find a process which could accurately find any defects.
CPE have added a completely new workshop to their existing facilities, to be used for production of stainless steel vessels. The new workshop is situated just across the road from their existing premises, and represents a significant expansion to the current facilities.
