Herff Jones Implements Third Eton UPS System

Indianapolis-based graduation cap and gown producer Herff Jones Co. of Indiana Inc. recently implemented its third unit production system (UPS) from Sweden-based Eton Systems AB, a leading provider of such systems for the sewn products industries. The system is designed to automate throughput of material during production and minimize material handling at each step of the manufacturing process.
Graduation cap and gown producer Herff Jones Co. of Indiana Inc. has impelemented its third Eton unit production system.

Herff Jones installed the UPS at its Arcola, Ill., plant, which manufactures more than 1.5 million graduation gowns each year. With this addition, the company has completely converted from a progressive bundle system to unit production for almost all of its ClassKeeper™ retainable cap and gown production.
