Get the most from your CNCs!
During any CNC machines usage, there are really only two activities.
Either machines are in setup or they are running production. Setup time is the
total time the machine is down between production runs. Cycle time is the time
it takes to complete a production run divided by the number of good workpieces
When machines are in setup, they are not producing. Anything you can do to
reduce setup time will improve the productivity of your CNC machines. In this 3
hour, 47 minute course, well expose many techniques to help you reduce
setup time and cost for the two most popular types of CNC machine tools.
We begin by presenting preliminary information, including basic premises
that will help you understand how to improve machine utilization. Included are
presentations on justification issues and resources you have available to
reduce setup time.
We then present principles of setup reduction; principles that can be
applied to any form of production equipment. We show two task types related to
setup, three general ways to reduce setup time, and four steps to implementing
Finally, we show countless specific techniques you can apply to reduce setup
time in the approximate order that setups are made from preparation to
make setups through first workpiece inspection! In each presentation, we
include printable handouts (63 handouts totaling over 120 pages) right on the
CD to reinforce your understanding of presented techniques.
All presentations have been developed using Microsoft PowerPoint for Windows
95/98, which is fast becoming the industry standard for computer generated
presentations. We use the freely distributed PowerPoint Viewer to display all
presentations. PowerPoint Viewer is included.
System requirements: You must have a multimedia computer with Windows 95 or
