KB94: Using prime material

Category: Miscellaneous Tips | Updated: 6/12/2007 8:27:21 AM | Owner: The Professor | Read: 2737 (Last: 8/28/2014 6:04:07 PM)

Resolution

Some stampers have sacrificed using coil equipment because of availability of cheaper secondary materials in strip and sheet. Others have sacrificed a great deal of production time using cheaper secondary material in coil. There is no argument with producing the needed results by the most economical means, but evaluate such choices carefully. Remember that 4 cents a pound material savings may prove a substitute for a 25% or even 100% production improvement. If poor materials are hampering your production evaluate what you might achieve using prime materials.
