“Previously, we would often lose a third of our shift’s worth of parts, not to mention spending at least an hour sorting through parts to identify the scrap. Since using the MachineMetrics’ predictive tool breakage technology, that waste has been eliminated.”
- Mike Driskell, Manufacturing Engineer, BC Machining
BC Machining, a manufacturer of fabricated metal parts, was producing such large quantities of scrap that they were forced to run their machines at 200% capacity just to hit their production goals. With no insight into when tools were worn or about to break, BC Machining accumulated significant costs from producing scrap and replacing broken tooling.
To prevent scrap production and maximize tool life, they partnered with MachineMetrics. Read our case study to learn how BC Machining virtually eradicated scrap from tool wear, significantly reduced their changeover times, and saved $72k per machine annually.
