Simonds Intl. has introduced SnapShot™ to its Cutting Intelligence™ line of analysis tools. The band sawing calculator is a data-driven Microsoft® Excel® tool that identifies and measures the impact of improved productivity and performance on day-to-day band sawing operations and their effect on profitability.
The calculator guides manufacturers through the individual cost components of their sawing operation, including cycle/cut times, blade life, crooked cuts/week, pinches/week, cut finish/hours per shift, noise cost/year, operator training/year, and machine repair service/year.
For categories with indirect value, the calculator allows users to measure their value on" costs.
