LENOX experts will conduct a free Site Survey that documents all aspects of a sawing operation. The detailed study extends beyond blade usage, however, and includes analyzing processes that may diminish inefficiencies or add cost to bandsaw operations.

When completed, the company will receive a clear written report with recommendations covering products, processes, and personnel. Projected cost savings are identified based on agreed to metrics that can be measured and monitored.

In previous benchmark surveys of more than 100 facilities, LENOX found that machine downtime, blade failure, and operator error are the “top-three sources of frustration for industrial metal cutting operations on the shop floor.”

Sound familiar?

To learn more about your operations, LENOX application specialists will perform a series of audits ranging from technology to human performance and determine best practices to improve your operations, and, perhaps, relieve your company’s particular “frustrations.”

They will identify and confirm facility goals, metrics and key challenges. They will observe and record sawing performance, machine conditions and operator practices.

The site survey includes a 13-point audit of bandsaw operations focusing on the most important parameters.

For instance, as part of the machine diagnostics and assessment portion of the survey, a LENOX application specialist will undertake a 13-point assessment with emphasis on critical sawing parameters such as band speed, band tension, band alignment, feed rate, feed pressure, and fluid ratio.

Additionally, the LENOX application specialists will engage with your staff in an attempt to determine and elevate skill levels. If needed, they can develop a customized training program that may include comprehensive safety training, sawing optimization techniques and trouble-shooting fundamentals as well as new employee training through to advanced operator and preventative maintenance training.

In the end, the application specialists will provide an assessment of your baseline operations, root cause analysis of problems and inefficiencies, and the actions planned to address those issues. The report will contain detailed recommendations to improve productivity, increase throughput and lower total costs.
