CNC Productivity: 4 Ways to Boost Your Productivity From CNC Machining

Productivity goes hand in hand between you and the machines! Part 2 of 2 of “CNC Productivity”

One of the major benefits CNC machinery offers is increased productivity and the precise capability. However, to get the best of both worlds- yas, that means the CNC machinery and you- you also have to use that machinery smartly as efficiently as possible.

 

You might be totally new to CNC machining… Or, you might have someone in your shop who is. Sometimes, it can be easy to ignore the basics and get right to it.

 

If you are still struggling and adjusting with CNC machines, below are some simple ways you can do to increase your efficiency with CNC machining:

 

  • Know Your Power Requirements Before You Install Your CNC Machine

What type of power supply does your shop need to get maximum performance from all its other machinery, and also the CNC machines’ power supply? You don’t want to install your machinery and experience regular power outages because of the power requirement imbalance. Make sure you do the research and any necessary calculations and the appropriate infrastructure in place to make the installation go as smooth as possible.

 

  • One-Time Projects Can Be Profitable

With one-time projects, you have to exercise your own judgment as to whether they make sense to take on or not. Take on a one-time project to make a customer happy. See if word-of-mouth turns that project type into a consistent revenue stream.

Market-leading CNC shops do an average of around 2,000 different projects per year. Average companies take on 5,000. With this in mind, you have some wiggle room to experiment and learn. The best business ventures constantly take risks, fail, learn, and then move forward.

 

  • Double-Up on Your Time Saved

While your CNC machine operates, move on to the next and begin setting up your next project. Or, have your employees take on another task. Make sure you employees always have a list of options so they can skyrocket productivity while their CNC machine operates.

Consider adding performance bonuses to boost their interest in this.

 

  • Optimize CNC Production for One Operator

Do you have CNC jobs that require more than one operator is needed to do the job? Is it possible to create a system that reduces the number of operators required to just one?

Not only does this improve efficiency, but it reduces mistakes, costs, and any potential injuries.
