Plant layout


I am looking for some good ideas on laying out my plating shop. We have a zinc line that is 70'; a black oxide line that will be approx 65'; anodize, chromate, en, passivation lines that are about 25-30'. My new bldg. is 85'x80 of shop space. I know that you need more than that but it is all I can afford to build.all of the tanks are 4' long. we need to fit all this plus shipping receiving inspection and everything else involved in day to day operations in here. any ideas you may have will be greatly appreciated.thanking you in advance.

Mr. Siddig:

Entire aisles in libraries are crammed with books about Plant Layout. You need to start with a hypothesis about plant layout and then offer supporting data. Provide your hypothesis and I'm confident that people here will support it or refute it, but simply asking people to e-mail you general information will not work and is wasting your project time. Good luck. Regards,
