Laser Cutting Capacity Support

The Opportunity

A manufacturer of elevator components was moving their operation to a new facility but could not afford to have their daily production requirement affected. Because the components they manufacture are customized by application, there were no options around building inventory to sustain demand during the timeframe of the move.

The Solution

At PCI we specialize in providing customers with flexible, innovative solutions. Since PCI was already known to this OEM as a premier provider of precision laser cutting, we were contacted to provide daily surge support. The OEM had a similar type laser cutting equipment, with similar controllers and cutting parameters. While this is not necessary to offer surge support, it streamlined the programming process, as the nest parameters were easily transferred from the OEM to PCI. Almost like an extension of their shop, PCI re-configured some minor adjustments with their tech tables to cut the nests provided by the OEM.

The Results

PCI’s ability to integrate as an extension of the OEM’s operation, allows PCI to cut and deliver to the OEM daily. The OEM shares visibility with PCI, who then schedules for the job per the OEM’s requested ship date, making deliveries daily.
