Shredding blades used for crushing are expensive, yet they wear out fast. The machine is expected to run 24/6 and maintenance can only be done on a certain day every week. When you have to weigh the high utilisation rate against high operational costs, which one do you compromise on?
– Every minute of downtime leads to a loss so the process has to run smoothly. We wanted to provide the customer with a solution where the blades would work reliably for the required time without any exotic and expensive bells and whistles. Nothing more and nothing less, says entrepreneur and owner of Logistic TKT Systems Oy, Joonas Tammisto.
When you have to weigh the utilisation rate against operational costs, the optimal solution requires changes in terms of both design and choices of materials.
– Our team brings together the latest design, manufacturing and technology know-how of the industry and we utilise this know-how all the way from the initial idea to the finished product. We always complete the development work and cost estimates openly with the customer.
This results in more reliable deliveries as well as improved profitability and predictability.
First, we developed and conceptualised an idea for a new design, after which drawings were made together with designers and manufacturing professionals in seamless collaboration. Prototypes made with various materials were tested in real conditions by the end customer and the best option was moved forward to production. Finished products are delivered ‘on site’ from Logistic’s factory, in other words directly to wherever the machine will be used.
– The customer’s maintenance process now works reliably and efficiently in six-day cycles, without additional costs. The machines can now be used efficiently for their whole useful life, due to which the reliability of deliveries, profitability and predictability has improved. The purchase costs of blades also went down, adds Tammisto.
