A sustainable solution
The changed structure of the cutting table results in a much smaller material consumption, which has both financial and environmental benefits.
- Previously, the slags from the cutting processes quickly closed off the cutting table. With only 7 slats, the slags do not stick, which means that it is easier to clean the table, just as the extraction works much better because the slats do not block the system. The effect is a much healthier working environment for employees, explains Erik Fusager.
With only 7 slats in the cutting table for large templates, BSB Industry achieves big savings on slats that are very expensive. At the same time, it is naturally much faster to replace 7 slats instead of previously up to 100 pieces.
- We do indeed save a lot of working hours on the new cutting table. On a regular, old cutting table, it took about 36 hours to replace the slats. On our new, improved cutting table for large templates, it only takes 12 hours. This means that we gain a significantly increased production capacity, because the cutting table can be reset and used again more speedily, explains foreman Erik Fusager.
