Details and information
MP&C is always on the lookout for cutting-edge technologies and creative solutions to enhance the effectiveness and worth of each project. When it came to producing roll tank shells, they encountered a hurdle. Their outdated Roundo PS-310 plate roll lacked CNC capabilities, which no longer met the company's evolving requirements. Managing multiple operators was quite a challenge while and training became increasingly burdensome. Additionally, the capacity of their outdated plate roller was also a limiting factor.
MP&C had clear that when they were ready to upgrade their rolling process, they needed the superior performance and reliability of a Faccin Plate Roll.
The team at Faccin truly excels in the metal forming world. Working with the Faccin Group was very easy, as confirmed by Luke Stencil, Maintenance Supervisor at MP&C.
Furthermore, he also adds, I was able to obtain very helpful information regarding different roll options Faccin could provide for us. The Faccin team focused on our application and provided with several options for us unlike other companies. During the evaluation stage, I was able to identify that the roller we had selected would meet all the needs we were looking for. A few of the folks from Faccin even came up to our facility to see our needs, discuss options, and answer all the questions we had. This made Faccin an easy choice for MP&C.
After careful consideration, MP&C has made the strategic decision to proceed with the innovative 4HEL-3539 model, featuring a cutting-edge 4-roll with linear design.
Stencil explains that their decision-making process went fairly quickly, as they were able to pinpoint the exact machine, the 4HEL-3539 model, with the support of the Faccin team. The 4-roll plate roll was empowered with by the advanced Siemens PGS-Ultra computerized numerical control. Top and side support completed the line for total automation.
Once MP&C agreed to the machine, it was here within 5 months. This met our timeline perfectly, as we are doubling our shop capacity and the transition worked out well. The day of delivery was exciting, seeing a brand-new piece of equipment being placed in our facility. Our employees were eager to learn how to use the new equipment, and we knew we would put it to good use immediately. Overall, the experience was extremely easy, and we appreciate the Faccin team! We know they will be our go to for other metal forming equipment.
The solution has significantly boosted the manufacturing output of tank shells and various circular metal forming shapes at MP&C.
We rely on the accuracy of the machine to maintain our customer’s highest tolerances. Time and time again is proving itself whether we are rolling something big or small, thick or thin. The quality of the parts rolled on the new Faccin have been amazing! Stencil added.
MP&C utilizes Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to effectively monitor and measure safety, quality, delivery, and cost. This enables them to maintain a high level of professionalism in all aspects of their operations.
Stencil highlighted that this machine has been a much safer machine to work around as most of the moving parts are contained.
Right away we are noticing an incline in quality, as this machine meets tolerances better, and overall provides a better product. The roller cuts our production time down drastically when making tank shells compared to our previous plate roll. This is incredibly helpful as we work in a world where lead-times are tight! Less time spent means less overall money spent, so the cost savings is valuable as we are able to produce more in a single day.
Faccin Group and MP&C have joined forces in their pursuit of innovation and dedication to achieving excellence. Through a strategic collaboration, these industry leaders combine their expertise and resources to fuel mutual growth and success.
