The Challenge

A contract machine shop maintains and repairs equipment for chemical plants and oil fields. The part being machined is a wire line component for offshore drilling made of Monel alloy. They are using an M5 Mazak CNC with semi-synthetic coolant to produce their products.

The customer needed to reduce the cycle time and increase their overall production.

The Original T-A successfully reduced cycle time and lowered the customer’s cost per hole.
