How does it work in practice?
A German customer wanted to take advantage of the benefits offered by Mandrel's technology. The first step was to replace his existing four different boring bars with two Mandrel Delta tools.
Using these Delta tools saves two tool changes per manufactured part, and a minimum of 12 seconds per product. Assuming the cost of a machine hour as €50, the total saving in financial terms comes out at approximately €10,600 a year.
This saving, linked to one work cycle for one part on one machine, can be multiplied very easily many times over, which the customer was keen to do, of course. By introducing 32 new tools based on Mandrel technology, he has been able to save some €175,000 a year.
Mandrel Delta technology offers:
- lower tool purchasing costs
- enhanced machine duty cycles
- savings in tool magazine investments
- reduced overall machine investments.
