Application of the techniques presented in this program will improve your machining process efficiency by at least 20%. These techniques have delivered four-fold increases in tool life, elimination of scrap, and increases in profitability. It enhances manufacturing efforts in all Lean enterprises.
This program focuses on understanding chip formation during machining, and how to read the tool wear patterns for insight to continuous improvement activities.
Key points of the program:
- Solve any machining problem.
- Improve profitability any machining process.
- Identify and document sub-optimized practices for continuous improvement.
- Read the process issues by understanding tool wear and failure modes.
- Use a "Deep Dive" into a process as a training opportunity.
- Address sub-optimized conditions with world class techniques.
- Capture process data and analyze it properly.
- Understand all cost components of the manufacturing process.
- Recognize the nine elements that impact the cost components.
- Address the five disciplines that impact the efficiency of the process.
Those who should attend:
- Machining Process Engineers
