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/h) of about 30 minutes each are carried out: 2 jobs x € 25/h x 1 person x 0.5 h x 4 weeks x 12 months = € 1.200,- per year.
