How do you cut the labor in half for part with 2 bends?
Change the manufactuirng process with technology !
A part with two bends that form a “J” shape always had to be produced in two operations.
With the new servo press technology, the press can pause at the bottom and a servo comes in from the side to create the second bend.
We now have a complete part in one single operation, cutting labor costs of the part in half! At $0.25 per part and an annual volume of around 100,000 parts; that is a $25,000 per year saving.
