Save time and money with every tool change. The ZOLLER costs/benefits calculator calculates your company's potential savings. ZOLLER measuring devices for tool presetting impress with their efficiency and are amortized in a short time. Machine downtimes are reduced by at least 15% with measured and preset tools. This saves you at least $ 15,000 per machine, per shift, per year.
The cost/benefit calculation is based on the following parameters:
4.52 minutes of machine downtime per hour and per machine are caused by tools that are loaded into the machine while insufficiently (if at all) set, measured and prepared. By using a ZOLLER presetting and measuring machine, this time can be used for production instead. Over the year, this additional time adds up to a measurable increase in productivity. For the example calculation, we have reduced this calculated value, as a result of measurements in the automotive industry, to 3 minutes of machine down time, per hour, per machine, and we have assumed 15 –25 tool changes per day.
Formula per machine: Time savings (in minutes) x # of Tool Changes x Shifts x Hourly Rate of Machine
With a tool management software, such as ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions, you can increase your productivity by at least 5%. According to a survey by the RWTH Aachen University, Germany (Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen), the annual tooling costs equate to 10% of the machine value.
Formula: 8 Hours per Day x # of Shifts per Year x Hourly Rate x 5%
Studies by RWTH Aachen University, Germany (Rheinisch-Westfaelische Technische Hochschule Aachen) prove that exactly the same tool costs are incurred for a machine tool in 10 years as the machine itself cost to begin with. With ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions, you can save 20% of these tool costs — a saving of 2% per year of the machine purchase price. A look at the tool costs in your company’s annual accounts will show you the amount of your potential saving.
Formula: Machine costs x 2%
