TOOL DETERIORATION ANALYSIS

Shed Light On Your Entire Business

How your production unit stacks up relative to others in industry can tell you a lot about your operation. To maintain a competitive edge, so to speak, it’s good to look at the competition to get valid comparisons that tell a lot about overall manufacturing efficiency.

Seco Tool Deterioration Analysis is a brand-neutral process, that can be done on site or remotely in just days, comparing usage to industry norms for a clear picture of potential savings in tool cost, increases in productivity, and reduction in down-time as well as scrap and re-work. Traditional methods of analyzing shop issues such as tool wear fall short when it comes to equating the affect that tool life plays on overall shop performance. The result is that you may be under-estimating and, in many cases, missing the true impact of inter-related issues such as machine utilization, quality, delivery and of course tool cost. Our tool wear analysis helps you understand four key issues that impact your whole operation:

  • Cost of Goods Sold (COGS) totals
  • Single-Minute Exchange of Die (SMED) analysis
  • Value Stream Management (VSM) results
  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) percentages
