Optimizing Setup Times

Flexibility is the trump card

Setup procedures that require the minimum amount of time and mastery of restarts in terms of quality are key success factors for production plants. Setup processes mean production downtime. A fast setup facilitates the production of small lots, which helps to meet growing customer demands and thus increase competitiveness. 

You take part in developing efficient setup processes using a setup simulation of a stamping machine. Step by step, the necessary process changes and general conditions are optimized. In addition to the optimal setup, the course teaches strategies and tools to ensure sustainability.
On request, it is possible to conduct the training on-site in the form of a practically oriented workshop.
