Significant cost savings
– achieved through essential true data insights
Meneta, the leading global manufacturer of brake shims for cars with an annual turnover of 43 million euros, harnessed the power of crucial true data.This invaluable information provided them with vital insights to optimize their processes, resulting in substantial cost savings of 40,000 euros per year across four machines.
Optimizing Stand-By Approach in Fluid Oil-Mix Tanks at Meneta
At Meneta’s production facility, large tanks containing heated fluid oil-mix are crucial for their manufacturing process. Over the years, the oil has been maintained at a constant high temperature to ensure its usability.
However, a challenge arose when the oil would become too cold, resulting in increased viscosity and rendering it unsuitable for production. Bringing it back to the required temperature would take two to three hours, leading to significant downtime and wasted production time.
To avoid this issue, the decision was made to keep the machine running even during weekends, preventing the oil from cooling down excessively and reducing the delay on Monday mornings.
Case Study: Optimizing Stand-By Approach in Fluid Oil-Mix Tanks at Meneta
When Meneta implemented monitoring with DS Energy Management System, they gained valuable insights into the true cost of this stand-by approach on their equipment. It became evident that keeping the entire machine at stand-by was not an efficient solution.
Collaborating with the engineering and maintenance teams, a solution was devised. They implemented a dedicated heating installation that locally heated the oil-substance within the container, ensuring it remained warm and ready for production at start-up on Monday mornings.
This optimized approach resulted in a remarkable 85% reduction in stand-by consumption compared to the previous method. Not only did this eliminate wasted production time, but it also led to significant cost savings. The annual value of this optimization amounts to an impressive 40,000 euros.
By leveraging the power of DS Energy Management System and addressing the specific challenge of maintaining optimal oil temperature, Meneta achieved improved efficiency, reduced downtime, and substantial cost savings. This case serves as a testament to the effectiveness of intelligent monitoring and targeted process optimization in the manufacturing industry.
