Read how we enabled our client bring products faster to market and gain considerable cost savings by delivering efficient CNC programs leveraging our local global delivery model
A leading oil and gas equipment company develops offline CNC programs using MazaCAM software for oil and gas completion tools to represent a wide variety of thread connections, varying in complexity — simple EU tubing thread connections with varying sizes and materials (H40, J55, C75 etc.).
The company wanted to eliminate the need for its operators to program on the machine. They also wanted to increase the uptime of machines. To remain competitive it was important to improve product turnaround time and ensure the manufactured parts reached the market quicker.
QuEST built a team based on the local-global delivery model. Under this model, seven CNC programmers based out of India worked in shifts to develop CNC programs.
An onsite team worked with the client to understand and assess their current operations and delivery processes. This knowledge was shared with the India team. The team as a whole worked with SMEs to develop robust processes, standard work, and technical review.
The team used productivity improvement tools that were able to generate operation tool paths using templates for various materials that simplified programming, making it faster and more efficient.
QuEST helped the customer with 50% cost savings, improve machine run time by 80% and reduce operation cost of setting up a machine by 85%. Our solutions also helped the customer to reduce cycle time from 2.3 to 1.8 hours per program and delivered 150 tapes per week.
