Another important target is the ability to efficiently machine a wide variety of parts in small size lots. One of the most effective approaches for this is DONE-IN-ONE processing.
The “DONE-IN-ONE” concept incorporates all machining processes from raw material input through final machining – in just one machine. It provides the ability to reduce production lead time, improve machining accuracy, reduce floor space and initial cost, lower operating expenses, reduce operator requirements and to improve the work environment. As a result, the concept not only streamlines production, it also improves overall management.
