Cost reduction through automation of CNC machines: Reduction of labour costs and machine costs thanks to optimal machine utilization
Automating CNC machine tools, machining centres or injection moulding machines offers a multitude of advantages for your company. An important advantage is that costs can be reduced in the long term.
- Machine operators can operate several machines
- Former staff can take on further tasks
- Machine costs per workpiece are reduced thanks to optimal utilization
- Amortization of the investment for CNC automation within a few years
- Process optimization reduces manual work and reduces costs
Automation of CNC machine tools reduces long-term costs
Finding good personnel in the field of machine operators has become difficult due to the shortage of skilled workers and therefore not cheap. With the help of automation in your production processes, it is possible for CNC machine operators to operate several machines at the same time and thus save labour costs. The EuroPal palletizing systems take over a large number of manual work steps in your production process, transforming your CNC machine park into a profitable automatic production process in which your employees can concentrate on the important things such as CNC programming.
Machine costs per workpiece are reduced by maximizing machine utilization and distributing fixed costs over a maximum of manufactured workpieces, thus reducing fixed costs per workpiece. The automation of CNC machine tools and the manufacturing process is particularly worthwhile here for serial and mass production with high quantities. Investments in automation generally pay for themselves within 1-3 years.
Downstream tasks in the manufacturing and production process can also be optimized by automating the CNC machine tools, which results in further cost savings potential. The modular automation palletizing and stacking systems ensure that the workpieces, which are automatically palletized or depalletized in the palletiser's workpiece store, are received or staged in the correct position and orientation. These feeding systems create order in the production process thanks to the correct and careful positioning, respectively the transfer and transfer of CNC workpieces, for an optimized and automated further processing.
