Understanding the true cost of cutting

       
 

The true cost of your cutting operation is only fully understood by looking at how productive your cutting system is and what it costs to operate over time.

Consumable cost over time

A function of consumable technology and system operation! (=price per set X sets used per month)

Cost of consumable changeovers over time

(=number of changes per month X time per change X labor and overhead rate)

Cost of lost production from changeovers

(=hours of downtime per month X value of production per hour)

Cost of lower productivity, quality and inconsistency

  • Scrap and edge rework time from inconsistent cut quality
  • Lost sales and business opportunities due to lower productivity and quality
  • Downtime, emergency service and damaged torches from inconsistent consumables and catastrophic failures
