A case study is now available from LMC Workholding featuring a local Tier One Automotive customer who was able to save $105,000 with increased production, 700 hours of machine time a year with $150/hour burden rate and a reduced cycle time of 29% with LMC.
The automotive supplier was trying to increase production of their GM axle tubes and turned to LMC and the Atling Design Engineers to develop a custom steady rest solution that allowed them to drill their parts without orienting the part multiple times. The customer averages 212,000 parts per year and reduced their cycle time by about 12 seconds per part.
