Welcome to our annual Plant Engineering issue of Modern Casting. This is the third year in a row we have published an October issue dedicated to examining ways metalcasters can and are re-engineering their facilities to enhance production and improve efficiencies.
As manufacturers, this is your goal every day. Increase output. Eliminate waste. Increase revenue. Decrease cost. Bolster profit. In a perfect world, you would achieve these improvements without spending a dime. In reality, your facility must balance the investments in time, equipment, materials and technology with the projected enhancement in productivity to ensure a sufficient payback.
The features in this issue provide ideas focused on both technology and process advancement.
As your metalcasting facility considers ways to improve efficiencies and advance production, look to the advice of the experts quoted in this issue and the case studies that are showcased. The challenge for our industry in the future will require every plant to maximize production from limited resources to ensure competiveness in the global economy.
