As the first RV manufacturer to implement the use of CNC-based manufacturing methods in the everyday construction of ultralight, composite-built travel trailers, it’s fitting that Lance Camper’s latest extension of this innovative technique comes in the form of a brand new, solar-powered 66,000-sq. ft. automated manufacturing facility. Set to be in full production mode by quarter 4 of 2018, the facility is currently testing the manufacture of Lance Camper parts.
Computer numerical control (aka, CNC), is the automated process of cutting and transforming chosen materials into precise shapes and sizes using exact measurements. This not only allows for the consistent cutting of materials but ensures accuracy of the parts that go into each Lance Camper product. Or, as Lance Camper puts it, “Quality is found at the intersection of experience and innovation.” In this case, the precise CNC machinery is part of their innovative process, and the experience of the Lance team is what results in quality that consumers can trust.
Yet another example of REV Sustainability’s economic goal to develop and implement eco-friendly processes at every stage of the manufacturing process, Lance’s integration of 660 solar panels located on the facility roof is set to produce the majority of the facilities total power requirements. With the ultimate goal of creating a 100% self-powered manufacturing floor for all of Lance’s walls, floors, and ceilings.
The new facility brings many advantages to Lance’s manufacturing process, including:
Further demonstrating our commitment to REV Sustainability initiatives, the new facility will also utilize 30 skylights for natural lighting, automatically-adjusting LED light panels and state-of-the-art recycling systems for all qualifying materials.
