Our goal is to help our customers save money in the machining process. We have found the most significant reductions in cost can be achieved by focusing on reducing machine cycle time and increasing throughput. As seen in the chart on the right, improvements in efficiency impact 80% of the cost structure—while reductions in tool prices impact only 3% of the overall cost. We also provide custom designed training for your employees to keep them up to date on the latest metalworking technology. This helps them get the job done quicker with fewer steps. These documented cost savings steps have resulted in cost savings that well exceed the cost of the tooling.
We have achieved additional cost savings through vendor consolidation and product standardization. To further reduce customer costs, we offer a variety of customized Vendor Managed Inventory solutions from basic inventory management to complete integrated supply solutions that address the unique needs of each customer.
