Increase Your CNC Machining Productivity
Tuesday, July 24, 2018

CNC, machine  People are always in search of techniques and methods that can increase the productivity and efficiency of their systems and processes.

Similarly, maximizing your CNC machining productivity is important. By making common mistakes, many manufacturers reduce their chances of getting high output.

To get an idea of your actual production level you can conduct a survey. By noting the output of machines and taking an average of the values you can find the operational efficiency. To increase your CNC machining productivity, you can follow these tips.

Avoiding Breakdowns by Doing Maintenance Beforehand

A CNC machine will break down at some point in its life. No matter what you do, that is going to happen. Machines are subject to wear and tear and you cannot stop that natural process. However, you can predict when maintenance is needed and give proper time for servicing the equipment. In this way you can avoid the downtime due to the breakdown of machinery.

Immediately contact your OEM when a part is damaged and you have to get a new one. To avoid unnecessary delays make sure that you remind them again and again to issue you a new part. You should not also worry about paying extra cash to get the part urgently, since that money would be nothing compared to what it will cost you to delay production. Whenever you are dealing with production, you need to consider revenue generation and cost savings simultaneously.

Eliminate the Waiting Time for Operators

The CNC machines should always have an operator. During the lunch hours, the machine operators could take breaks at different times to ensure that all the machines are working at that moment. A worker should be skilled enough to be able to operate multiple machines at any given time. Even during shift changes, the machine should be operating.

Running Your Old Machines More Frequently than Your New Ones
The new machines should not be used more than the old ones. To prevent the wear and tear of new equipment, you need to make sure that you are running the old ones more often. When the old ones no longer function, replace them with the new ones and you can then use the newer equipment more frequently.

Use High Quality Tools and Accessories

Using good quality accessories and tools is critically important to ensure high levels of productivity. High quality tools of reputed companies will make sure that there is less wear and tear of these items.

The J.F. Berns Company manufactures high quality CNC lathe and bar feeding accessories to increase your machining productivity. Their products include spindle liners, bar chamfering machines, bar supports, spindle stops, draw tubes, draw bars, spindle extensions and special loaders and unloaders.

Thank you to you and the JF Berns team for a most thorough and fascinating tour on Friday! We truly appreciated the time and care you took to describe the various processes involved in design and manufacturing at JF Berns. The students have commented to me that they left having a new perspective on the industry and all the opportunities that are there for them. I hope you will forward this to everyone who was so kind to be part of the tour. I was not able to get everyone's card and do not want to leave anyone out. With best regards, Sue.
