For any producer of machined parts, minimizing the downtime is essential. Therefore, the time spent shifting between batches must always be kept to a minimum. This process normally involves changing program, tools, material, and making a trial component. If a problem with material inconsistency exists, many trial components might be necessary and worst case, even scrapped before the machining process is stable. This of course both consumes time and adds cost.
Now let’s consider the different steps in the production process, and how Sanmac® materials can improve overall productivity.
This reduces machine idle time, increases utilization, and finally saves both money and time that can be better spent on running the next part.
