Remarks:                       OD and wall reduction in center section is 

carried out in simultaneous operation on stations 1 and 2 in order to reduce total cycle time for 

this longest operation (approx. 35 sec. per op. I station) to 50%, thus cycle time of entire 

transfer line corresponds to shorter cycle time (18 sec.) of stations 4 - 13


Cycle time:                     18 seconds per piece - (reference this time as per Nexteers' piece part)
