Maurizio Porta reveals...
the 3 Ages of the Manufacturing market evolution and how to Increase Productivity in your Production Department, WITHOUT enlarge your Machine Fleet, even if up to now you have used Machining Centers in battery!
Sit back for a while, watch the Video course and find out the third and last Age of Manufacturing, the one will bring your Production Department to win new market challenges...
"We had complex processes which required multiple machining steps on our transfer machines, with long and complicated setups.
Furthermore, at a qualitative level, it was not always possible to obtain the best result, with the risk of carrying out manual deburring operations.
Thanks to Porta Production Method it is possible to group the machining phases, working very complex parts in a single clamping, with simpler and faster setups, eliminating any subsequent deburring problem.
Thank to this Method, we have considerably reduced the lead-time of items that were previously manufactured on transfer machines in several operations, even if sometimes the cycle time may be higher.
A problem that is solved by having the parts immediately available and by faster setups.
The quality of parts produced applying this Method is significantly improved, eliminating deburring and quality control issues."
"We had a horizontal machining center but we were not able to deal with the work load.
We have lots of parts and relatively small batches so we would have had to buy two additional machining centers, which also meant hiring more machine operators.
Then we discovered Porta Production Method!
We were able to move all the milling work to a machine, as the machining time per part was reduced.
The main advantage is that we managed to deal with the work load without hiring other technicians.
Once a piece is tooled the first time, the following setups are simply and fast to be processed."
"Our production includes a significant number of different items and batches from a few to tens of thousands of parts.
We mainly used machining centers for small and medium batches and transfer machines for large series.
These choices were not enough to adequately cover our wide range of needs and, especially in mid-range series, the results were not satisfactory.
Thanks to Porta Production Method and 3-spindle Machine, we have improved our production, increasing productivity, reducing setup times and ensuring the flexibility we need.
After our experience with the first machine, we installed another 3-spindle PORTACENTER ."
"I had timing problems due to downtime of tool changes and the part loading. In order to perform all the machining of the part I had to equip several machines.
Now I can load the part on the free pallet, while the units are working.
The positive results are the significant reduction in production times, precision and reduction in setup times."
"The problems we had before were long setup and cycle times which didn't allow a fast product change.
Let’s say that once we found the balance, we tried to machine as much parts as possible, increasing the stock (a high cost for the company).
Now we got more precision, reduction of setup and cycle times, flexibility in product change. This allows us to keep up with our customers’ requests."
"We reduced scraps and production costs thanks to the speed of retooling and we are able to guarantee faster deliveries.
Moreover, we achieved positive results improving the quality of our pieces and increasing productivity.
Today, we can offer our customers faster deliveries at more competitive prices!"
"Before I had to machine the part in different clampings with the following problems:
Thanks to Porta Production Method we had the chance to optimize the process in order to solve quality and cycle time problems.
In addition, the machine allows the retooling of one part to another one in 15 minutes thanks to the great availability of tools always in stock. In fact, the changeover consists only in jaw change."
"It was impossible for us to machine the six “sides” of a part, also with a few sloped holes, at the same time.
Now, I can machine the six faces and use standard tools.
Thanks to Porta Production Method I solved problems with the machining of some kind of parts, with execution times that finally allow me to talk about 'Productivity'."
Hi! I am Maurizio Porta,
CEO of Porta Solutions and trainer at Porta Production School, where I explain competitive methods of production for the world of the users of Machine Tools.
After more than 25 years of experience in this field, I developed and designed my Method, the PORTA Production Method, to help production companies that use Machining Centers and Transfer Machines, to reduce waste, increase profit and become more competitive.
