Subject: Ford Explorer U152 Stacked Tool Optimization
Just a quick note to let you know that in our ZIPPS training class, our mold techs and supervisors, optimized the U152 Front Stacked tool with great success: Prior Cycle Time: 72 seconds New Cycle Time: 59 seconds Prior Shot Weight: 1854 g RH + 1818 g LH = 3672 grams New Shot Weight: 1798 g RH + 1760 g LH = 3558 grams Total Savings -114 grams per shot @ 460,000 veh /yr = 115,611.01 lbs / yr savings This tool has been running perfectly since this optimization with transducers.
