Gearench Reduces Set-Up Time by 60% with Tool Presetter

The October 2014 issue of Manufacturing News profiles BIG Kaiser customer Gearench. Located one mile south of Clifton, Texas, Gearench produces more than 40 separate product lines exclusively for the oil industry used in exploration, drilling, production, refining and completion. Looking to minimize set-up time and machine downtime, the Gearench team found a solution in the MAGIS 400 tool presetter from Speroni.

By taking tool set-up offline, set-up time was reduced by 60%, and machine downtime was completely eliminated. This streamlined process led to an annual savings of more than $81,000.

“The MAGIS has become a valuable asset to our production process and will continue to be utilized as a major engineering tool in our machining process costs,” said Zack Fehler, Manufacturing Engineer, Gearench. “The Speroni tool presetter has allowed us to maintain our supreme level of quality while simultaneously cutting costs.”
