Implications of Multitasking for the Job Shop, Contract Shop or Subcontractor

Independent shops choosing multitasking over more conventional machine tools generally value these benefits:

  • Fixture and tooling cost reduction
  • Shorter programming and debugging times using Mazatrol MT
  • Shorter payment cycles (smaller, more frequent shipments)
  • Increased customer intimacy (possibility for part, programming and tooling design co-development)
  • On-time deliveries supported by little or no inventory
  • More profitable pricing structure
  • Production with fewer people, less floor space, fewer machines
GOAL: Differentiate yourself to become less vulnerable to the dictates of customers.
