Reducing Cycle Time & Cost of CNC Turning Centres - IMTMA/P007

Programme Background

Buying an expensive CNC machine does not automatically guarantee high productivity. Reducing the cycle time on CNC machines is critical, particularly in high volume production like in auto parts. In the highly competitive market scenario, customers determine the price of a product and entrepreneurs need to continuously fine tune the costs to realize profits. Machine utilization has a major impact in reducing the manufacturing cost of components. Although the material cost cannot be reduced, the cycle time and machining cost can be controlled with the right machining, tool selection, cutting parameters selection, work holding, etc. Reducing cycle time requires eliminating or reducing non-value-adding activity. Cycle times are often impacted due to operator errors, cutting parameters, improper work holding, loading & unloading, improper usage of tools & measuring devices and other components needed during the production run.
