Get the most from your CNCs!

During any CNC machine’s usage, there are really only two activities. Either machines are in setup or they are running production. Setup time is the total time the machine is down between production runs. Cycle time is the time it takes to complete a production run divided by the number of good workpieces produced.

When machines are in setup, they are not producing. Anything you can do to reduce setup time will improve the productivity of your CNC machines. In this 3 hour, 47 minute course, we’ll expose many techniques to help you reduce setup time and cost for the two most popular types of CNC machine tools.

We begin by presenting preliminary information, including basic premises that will help you understand how to improve machine utilization. Included are presentations on justification issues and resources you have available to reduce setup time.

We then present principles of setup reduction; principles that can be applied to any form of production equipment. We show two task types related to setup, three general ways to reduce setup time, and four steps to implementing setup reduction.

Finally, we show countless specific techniques you can apply to reduce setup time in the approximate order that setups are made – from preparation to make setups through first workpiece inspection! In each presentation, we include printable handouts (63 handouts totaling over 120 pages) right on the CD to reinforce your understanding of presented techniques.
