Problem-solving expertise helps a bearing manufacturer unlocks the value of a poor performing tool.
OPTIS experts have helped solve the most challenging problems,
helping to increase tool life by as much as 4:1.
Tool life promised by the cutting tool manufacturer was not being met. OPTIS expertise reduced previously high – and expensive – scrap rates which plummeted to under 1% and required 100% inspection.
After detailed analysis of the current process, followed by testing and evaluation of the resonant frequencies of the machine tool, recommendations from OPTIS experts saw the manufacturer observe a 4:1 increase in tool life.
OPTIS combines the scale and global reach of Castrol with leading edge solutions of TechSolve, bringing the most comprehensive know-how and data driven best-practice solutions to help smart manufacturers transform their processes to optimize efficiency.
