Lean Tool and Die Making
Our continuing development of G Corp's proprietary Die
Factory System (DFS) has resulted in a total system methodology for
diemakers and moldmakers to utilize in all aspects of their operations,
including obtaining the RFQ, cost estimating, obtaining order and entry
into a manufacturing system.
Scheduling and tracking of job progress, engineering, design, material
ordering and delivery from reliable suppliers get the project off to
a fast start. Receiving of raw materials, patterns, castings and components,
optimized machining processes prepares the job for minimal handwork
before assembly. We assist in tryouts, adjustments, sample runoffs,
and final buyoff and shipping.
We also aid clients with accounts receivable collection and tryout in
the customers' home press line and obtain feedback after initial production
runs. These steps are all performed in a Lean process which affords
the client a high quality, low cost and very short delivery. Typical
domestic costs can usually be slashed by 25 to 50 percent, and delivery
times are cut by as much as 75 percent. Results of this proper application
of Lean principles to the tool and die industry enable shops to reduce
costs competitive with shops in low labor cost countries and much shorter
delivery times. It is well worth your time to investigate the possibilities
for your operation.
All of this effort takes the total system approach of G Corp's DFS,
along with a significant amount of time to custom-develop, because each
shop's equipment, plant layout, personnel, size and product family types
is unique. Customization can be done in a short time and a few, well-chosen
targets generate a substantial initial bottom line impact, large enough
to fund the entire cost of installing the DFS.
G Corp can bring all the extensive resources of our
partners and affiliates to you in an organized, reliable and trustworthy
manner. If you can't find what you are looking for here, please give
us a call. We'll be glad to be of service.
