Metal fabrication is a broad business, and additive manufacturing has serious potential for a surprising number of applications, from scale models of large fabrications to a variety of tools and fixtures.
CNC press brake and other CNC equipment are different in aspect to processing field and technology, so as the manufacturers, you have to take full consideration (including the application, deflection, bending radius of parts, etc) before you made the decision to buy it. As the decision maker, you gonna have the responsibility to understand the performance, processing range, function, precision of press brake.
We keep on looking into modern sheet metal forming and bending technologies, evaluating their benefits and pitfalls and clarifying what is specific about the manufacturing, to which each of those technologies looks like the best solutions.
Last week we have started our journey into exploring modern technologies of bending, trying to choose a technology which would be the best suited for manufacturing and help to get rid from back pains and strains of the operators. Let us get on today and see, what benefits the folding machines can bring.
8 types of waste that VLMs can eliminate
While processes differ between factories and warehouses, the typical types of waste found are quite similar and always involve inefficient use of time and money. Lean manufacturing is based on identifying and eliminating waste. In lean manufacturing, waste is any expense or effort which doesn’t generate a product or a service that a potential client is willing to pay for.
