What is “Total Cost of Ownership” (TCO) and what does it have to do with implementing automated processes into your production lines? How will considering the concept of TCO in the procurement of your next production line or machine lead to increased productivity and profitability?
ELSNER recently added a Doosan DNM 6700 vertical milling machine. The new machine is fast and can handle parts 60% bigger than the Mori Seiki it replaced.
No one could have seen it coming. On an early morning in January, a fire ripped through a manufacturing plant in the outskirts of London, destroying the industrial space and along with it 7 converting machines and production lines. A blaze so large it could be seen for miles, it took fifteen fire engines and 97 firefighters to extinguish the flames. A leading manufacturer of canister wipes, the company knew they must respond swiftly and with resolve in order to keep the business going. Their immediate move to an old factory space, coupled with great partnerships to facilitate new warehouse space and custom automation machinery allowed them to barely skip a beat.
There are a number of automated manufacturing technologies that make a true difference in boosting productivity. The use of ultrasonic welding is on the rise at ELSNER as we help our customers further automate labor intensive operations.
Do you want to integrate automation into your manufacturing process but you're unsure where to start? Maybe your biggest hurdle is selling the idea to leadership. Effectively communicating the reason why and the ROI for any major shift is necessary. We're here to help.
