Imagine yourself: You get to the office, grab a cup of coffee, and see an incoming request from a company that you really want as a customer. However, the parts contain a lot of weld preparations and countersunk holes. Your current process limitations might drive them to look for another cutting company that offers a total package. That leads to your ultimate goal; deliver complete, high-quality products to your customers with short lead times.

To do so and become a trusted one-stop-shop for your customers, the first things you need to consider are:

  • Adding additional processes to your current production process
  • Find ways to increase your flexibility
  • Reduce manual handling and logistics.

This is where Voortman's high-end multi-processing plate machines come in, providing flexibility and high-quality parts. The Voortman V310 can cut with oxy-fuel, bevel cut, drill, mill, mark, thread-tap and countersink, all with the push of a button. But there's more to explore.

Serving customers with all manufacturing processes and acting as an extension of your customers through transparency in your value chain can certainly increase the value you offer. But it's important to remember that cost per part remains a key factor in determining customer loyalty and ultimately the success of your business.

Do you struggle to decrease the cost per part, while still maintaining the high standard of quality that your customers expect and delivering on schedule? And do you actually know what drives up the costs of your plate processing?
Mostly, it's materials, with consumables and labor making up the rest. But here's the good news: focusing on material usage and consumables, and exploring ways to automate processes can reduce costs per part and increase efficiency. Check out the articles below for fresh insights into strategies for optimal material usage, waste reduction, consumable management, and automated running - all backed by Voortman's advanced machinery and software.
