Annual savings exceeding € 27,000

Lubrication of bearings and spindles of multiple heads

Initial situation

The customer, a leading manufacturer of metal sanitary ware, encountered a problem with the lubrication of the micro gears of the multiple heads as the product used was leaking from the seals. On average, the customer experiences the breakage of 2 heads per year and therefore the customer incurs an annual cost of € 3,500 x 2 breakages = € 7,000. In addition, about 4 interventions per month (from € 250.00/pc to € 1,000.00/pc) are carried out to replace various components. Based on an average cost of € 625, the customer thus incurs a cost of € 625 x 4 operations per month x 12 months = € 30,000 per year. Finally, 2 repair jobs per week (€ 25.00/h) of about 30 minutes each are carried out: 2 jobs x € 25.00/h x 1 person x 0.5 h x 4 weeks x 12 months = € 1,200 per year.
