At its simplest, cycle time
refers to the duration of an organizational process.
On sophisticated solder paste printing equipment, there is two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) post print inspection, stencil wiping and stencil vacuum cleaning, automatic board support placement systems, board-to-stencil alignment systems, and other options that reduce process defects and cycle time
In this example, management gives cycle time
and quality each a rating of .
These solutions reduce the cycle time
from idea to new product or service, reduce the risk associated with innovation and maximize return on investment.
RXplastics series robots feature small footprints, minimal setting times that reduce overall cycle time
, SPI equipped and fully integrated for direct communication with molding machine, high-speed movement that minimizes cycle and die interrupt times, pre-wiring for immediate connection, and intuitive V-CellPlastics software.
With the shorter cycle times
associated with the new generation of TPUs, multi-component molding can be much more efficient than with traditional soil TPUs and greater overall durability can be attained versus many other elastomers.
Similarly, HTM has in effect cut cycle times
in half in the casting of the transmission's servo body by employing a two-cavity die that makes two parts in one shot.
Under-sized generators lead to excessive catalyst or co-reactant usage and extended cycle times
Such a part is hard to mold with gas because there are sink problems that generate a reject rate of 10% to 20% and a cycle time
of 2 min with a 60- to 80-sec hold time," Goralski says.
This prompted the foundry to search for a core machine that could sufficiently decrease the cycle time
on its jobs and turn out a higher number of cores, with no compromise in quality.
Reduces Cycle Time
and Significantly Increases Sample Throughput
can be reduced by at least 2 sec, thanks to a safety gate with adjustable stroke that minimizes the gate travel distance on each cycle.
