Competitiveness in Metal Cutting

Leading technology suppliers to the metal cutting industry, EdgeCAM, Sandvik Coromant and Mazak are joining forces on a tour of European cities where they will discuss competitiveness through manufacturing investment. Representatives from the three companies will argue that to remain competitive the most important factor is to invest in the right manufacturing philosophy, systems and equipment. With an increasing number of European companies operating in both high and low labour cost economies, the need to select and successfully implement appropriate manufacturing systems across the whole business is vital. Simply chasing low wages is not enough. Labour costs are only one element in a complex equation that defines sustained competitiveness. Examples will be given to demonstrate how making strategic decisions about manufacturing philosophy, systems and equipment has enabled businesses to be competitive globally irrespective of plant location. “We are delighted to partner Sandvik Coromant and Mazak on this tour,” comments Simon Lee, international sales director for EdgeCAM. “Each of has first hand experience of witnessing customer successes through effective implementation of the latest technologies. One objective of these presentations is to share this knowledge with manufacturing companies that are considering technology investment right now. The pressure for continuous improvement will never go away and the emergence of China and India is now creating a debate about future competitiveness throughout the whole of Europe.”  The EdgeCAM, Sandvik Coromant, Mazak European tour will take place during November and December in Poland, Italy, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Spain and Sweden.   -ENDS- About EdgeCAM EdgeCAM, a market leading computer aided manufacturing (CAM) system for NC part programming, offers a complete solution for milling, turning and mill/turn programming with unparalleled ease of use and sophisticated toolpath generation.
