QDC – Quick Die Change
Fast shift systems lower manufacturing costs by reducing the changeover time, the unproductive time of your presses. Optimization allows for faster adaptation to market and customer requirements. QDC systems will not only reduce your manufacturing cost at a quick return of investment, it will make you more competitive and make your production much safer and employee-friendly.
The adoption of a QDC program is usually the result of a switch to a useful JIT (Just-In-Time) manufacturing system. JIT is the production of precisely the necessary quantity at the right time, with the objective to achieve the lowest possible number of rejects and prevent bottlenecks. Long changeover times are a 100% loss.
