Die Casting White Papers
Office Consolidation Improves Efficiency
Rangers Die Casting recently moved all the personnel involved in company management and quality control into one office within our production facility. The move contributes to our ongoing efforts to create an efficient, lean operating environment.
Previously scattered in separate locations throughout our building, consolidating key personnel in a single space with an open configuration makes it easier to communicate and improves service to customers. With everyone in the same room, customer inquiries that require input from multiple departments can often be answered while the customer is on the phone since there is no need to track down members of the production team. This leads to quicker resolution of any issues that may occur during a production run.
The office consolidation improves human side of the service equation, especially when combined with technology improvements such as the new x-ray inspection equipment we discussed in the last issue of Rangers Results. The new equipment not only provides much clearer images, which is important for demanding industries such as automotive aerospace customers, but enables real-time data transfer of the images to our customers. This is a significant production time-saver, since we can immediately discuss with our customers any problems we discover and figure out solutions.
The blending of advanced technology and an efficient management structure is all part of our quest for continuous improvement to better serve our customers’ needs.
Computer Upgrade Integrates Processes
Another aspect of our drive for continuous improvement is using the latest computer systems to manage our business. In today¹s business environment, this is just as important to customers as having the right die casting equipment.
Increasing Number of Regulations Could Reduce Manufacturing Output
Federal regulations affecting the manufacturing sector have increased by 60 percent since 2009, with the potential to reduce manufacturing output by as much as $500 billion in 2012 according to a recent industry study.
Answering the Right Questions for Good Die Design
Well-designed tooling is the foundation for creating a successful aluminum die cast component. Our engineers work with you from the start to ensure that the correct tooling is used to create a quality part.
