Triple the value of your BWs with CNC automation
We have an extensive history of creating extremely well performing production systems to metal shops all over the world, together with BW. When you combine your BW machine tool(s) with Fastems flexible automation, you can get closer to the ultimate target of manufacturing of doing the right things at the right time – all the time. In numbers, that means during all of the yearly 8,760 hours.
Automation transforms daily operations, making them much more productive, efficient and stable. Automation helps in minimizing set-up times as the next batch can be be prepared while the previous is being machined. At the end of the day, the operational benefits are measurable in the five key production metrics mentioned in the pyramid above.
Improved financial results are of course driven by development in operations such as higher utilization of resources, more throughput, higher quality and more proactive production planning. The effect in short: the production achieves higher volumes and profits and operates with less money (less stocks and WIP).
Customers and people
Smarter operations are good both for the workforce and customers. They help fight the challenge of finding and keeping skilled labor and being able to deliver quality on time – while remaining profitable.
