Lower your costs by going horizontal

June 11, 2009

Planning to increase manufacturing capacity by adding another low cost VMC? Maybe it is time to evaluate how to achieve lower costs, increased profits, lean operation and reduced lead-times by switching to a horizontal machining center. This webinar will compare the use - and associated costs - of utilizing an HMC for the production of a part rather than the traditional VMC approach. The evaluation will consider factors such as machine price, load/unload times, access to the part, chip management, multi-part fixturing, done-in-one part sequencing, part handling labor content, possible errors or scrap, floor-to-floor times, through-put and ultimately - cost per part.
