Anyone who runs a factory wants to be sure that it runs as smoothly and as efficiently as possible. Here are some tips for improving the efficiency of your acrylic fabrications company.
1. Find the Perfect Balance Between the Size of the Blade and the Cutting Speed for Your Budget
Look at the max speed that you can fabricate acrylics. Then, see which procedure is determining that max speed. The procedure that determines max speed is the procedure that is has to run for the longest period of time, therefore capping the max speed of fabrication. If the max speed of fabrication is being capped by how quickly you are able to cut thicker acrylics, then you are going to need to invest in a new blade that has a larger diameter. The larger the blade's diameter, the faster thicker acrylic can be cut.
If you are primarily cutting thinner acrylic material, then you don't want to worry about changing the size of blade because it's not going to help you. A new blade with a larger diameter costs money, and won't actually help you reduce the amount of time that you spend cutting the acrylics. If you are cutting primarily thinner acrylics, there's also a good chance that your bottleneck is not coming from this part of the fabrication process.
2. Choose a Speedy, Affordable Finish
When you finish cutting your acrylics, you need to finish the edges so that they are not rough to the touch and so that they are easier to make things with. Unfortunately, the faster the speed of the buffing process, the more money it actually takes. For example, flame polishing acrylic fabrications is much faster than sanding acrylic fabrications, but it also costs a lot more money. You need to determine how much extra speed you need by comparing the profits of being able to produce a certain number of extra fabrications per day by switching to a faster finishing method against the amount of money it costs to run the finishing process itself. Make sure that you are not spending so much on the finishing process that you aren't maintaining your usual profit margins, simply for the sake of finishing the fabrications more quickly.
You may want to talk to your floor manager. He or she will know precisely where the bottlenecks are will be able to help you figure out steps that you can take to improve the speed of your overall fabrication process.

As soon as I started my own company, I realized that customers demanded superior products. I stopped worrying so much about costs and started focusing on improving the things that we sold to our clients. Although it seemed expensive at first, our efforts were rewarded with fresh loyalty from our consumers. We started to build additional clientele, and it was really refreshing to see. Now we are known for our high-quality products, and the same can't be said for other businesses. This blog is all about improving your processing and manufacturing procedures to make your customers happier and to keep losses to a minimum.
