Benefits of process control

What if you could extract more throughput from the machinery you already have?

More throughput from your existing assets.

Increase automation and reduce human intervention.

Reduce rework, concessions and scrap.

Enhance your capability and take on more work.

The intelligent use of process control technologies within the manufacturing process has beneficial effects far beyond the traditional aspects of dimensional quality assurance ...

Increase throughput from your existing assets

Vertical CNC machine

If your machines are overloaded then you may be facing a sizeable capital investment to make up the shortfall. Either that, or a large sub-contract bill. Or worse still, you might find yourself turning away profitable work.

But what if you could extract more throughput from the machinery you already have?

  • defer capital expenditure
  • reduce your sub-contract and overtime bills
  • pursue additional business

Increase automation and reduce human intervention

OMP40-2 with OTS

Are you reliant on skilled operators to keep your machines running, leading to high labour costs and a substantial overtime bill? Or perhaps your engineers are tied up with shop support rather than working on new processes.

What impact would lower direct labour and shop support costs have on your competitiveness?

  • automate manual setting and measurement processes
  • reduce direct labour costs
  • redeploy staff into proactive engineering roles

Reduce rework, concessions and scrap

Components

Scrapping parts is always painful - it's a waste of time, effort and materials. Similarly, rework and concessions lead to late deliveries, fire-fighting and overtime.

If you could largely eliminate such quality costs, how would this help your responsiveness and profitability?

  • improved conformance and consistency
  • lower unit costs
  • shorter lead times

Enhance your capability and take on more work

Equator gauging medical component

Customers are demanding ever more complex work, whilst regulations are driving greater traceability throughout the manufacturing process. Are your capabilities keeping pace with the needs of your market?

Do you need a cost-effective way to boost the capability of your machining and inspection processes?

  • offer your customers state-of-the-art capabilities
  • take on more complex work
  • meet customer demands for traceability
