with setup optimisation. Guaranteed!

 

 

Setup optimisation increases the spindle running time of your HEDELIUS machining centres while reducing throughput times and boosting production quantities, without requiring greater number of staff, additional shifts and even additional machinery.

When it comes to the production of individual parts or small series, setup times are often higher than the actual machining time. Reducing the setup time by just 30 minutes a day would increase the spindle running time by over 100 hours per year – and for many customers, we’ve surpassed that achievement by a long way. How many parts can you produce in 100 hours, and what would that equate to in additional sales for your company per year?

A setup-optimised solution from HEDELIUS allows you to harness the full potential of your workforce. There are various setup optimisation options, depending on the batch size, program runtime and organisation of your business.

No one organisation is like another and each company has its own specific requirements. We are happy to provide bespoke advice tailored to achieve the right solution for you. Book a non-binding consultation with one of our expert advisors.

 

 

Setup often takes longer than the machining itself.

 

Setup times arise if the machining centres need to be converted from one product type to another. As such, the setup time encompasses all of the machine downtimes. In other words, it refers not only to the time that it takes to equip/convert the machines, but also the time during which the machine is not being used, e.g. lining up sales orders or looking for tools and equipment. Optimising the setup process is also a key factor in achieving high productivity and economic success, particularly for small batches. When investing in a new machining centre, you need to focus on the entire setup process as early as the planning phase.
