UniPunch tooling offers you and your customer speed, that is the ability to make
parts faster than you can with other methods. Processing time matters, and here
Textbooks point out that in the time from when a piece of steel enters a factory
to when it leaves, most of the time it is in the factory it is waiting, and the way
to get the steel through the factory faster is to reduce wait time. Even if you achieve
just-in-time delivery of your steel, it can still spend most of the time waiting.
So what is it waiting for? And what can you do about it? How can you get the
steel to move through faster? Parts wait for the parts ahead of them to be finished,
and that is why processing time matters. With faster processing time you help
not just the part being worked on, you reduce the wait time for all the parts
coming up behind and you help them move through the factory faster too.
