Weiler Consumable Productivity program helps manage spend, improve productivity

March 24, 2021 - Weiler Abrasives, Cresco, Pennsylvania, is offering its Weiler Consumable Productivity program to help end users better manage their abrasives costs and increase productivity. The WCP program tests and evaluates abrasives to compare product life, reduce cycle times and increase efficiencies.

“The WCP program can bring real value to end users, especially if they are experiencing bottlenecks in their operations, have short abrasive life and want to improve performance,” says Ron McCarthy, abrasives specialist, Weiler Abrasives. “Our goal is to set them on a path of cost savings and better productivity — and we’re confident we can do that. One of our most recent WCP participants saved $62,000 annually, so our customers are finding significant value in this program.”

The program involves time studies and observation of abrasive usage to gather quantitative data that can be measured and verified, leading to a repeatable solution. Weiler Abrasives representatives look at how abrasives are used, how long they last and how productive they are. It involves five steps:

  1. Evaluating the value related to purchasing the abrasives
  2. Real-life testing at the company’s facility
  3. Establishing a baseline through testing
  4. Collecting data and establishing averages through product evaluation
  5. Reviewing findings and creating an actionable plan

By comparing several products throughout the process, Weiler Abrasives provides a recommendation for the best, most productive abrasive for the application.
