In-House Prodution Improvement
We interviewed Andriy a Manufacturing Engineer at Schulte Industries, to tell us about their experiences with the Dragon A400. Andriy told us about Schulte Industries and their experiences with the Dragon A400. They have a variety of tube parts that need repeatable accuracy in production. Before purchasing in-house CNC tube & pipe production with the Dragon A400, Schulte used templates to guide hand-cut plasma cut parts. This manual method led to inconsistent parts and slower than desired tube production. Most of what Schulte Industries uses their Dragon A400 for is 0.25 inch thick 4 inch by 4 inch tubing.
Andriy said “The plasma cutting is a better tolerance than before. The quality of cuts improved.” While the tolerance has improved, Schulte Industries was also able to move from a two-step process to a one-step process with the Dragon A400. “The Dragon A400 has brought an increase of 30 percent efficiency for the tube parts being produced.” With a wide breadth of products, the increase of production efficiency “improved profitability by 10 to 20 percent on the parts cut by the Dragon A400.” This led to the Dragon A400 paying for itself in about a year.
