Metal Manufacturing

Reliable Equipment for the Metal Manufacturing Industry

Metal manufacturing faces tough challenges from harsh environments, unreliable equipment, safety, and sustainability requirements limiting budgets that restrict equipment usage and cause unplanned downtime that effects production schedules and delay projects across the organization.

Metal Manufacturing Challenges

Across the metal manufacturing industry, four key challenges remain constant:

  • Harsh Environments – Extreme heat, high levels of dust, dirt, debris, and shards or shrapnel can cause serious equipment downtime from things like damaged tires, component damage from improper air filtering, and more.
  • Safety Compliance – Infractions and heavy fines can occur for organizations who fail to meet current safety standards. In addition, the workforce shortages have led to an influx of new and inexperienced employees which can lead to production delays and unplanned downtime.
  • Sustainability Regulations – Green initiatives continue to push through local, state, and federal government systems, forcing manufacturers to take a closer look at low emissions equipment that can meet new and upcoming emissions regulations.
  • Limited Budgets – Smaller capital allotments mean leaner fleets. Metal manufacturing companies are now forced to rely on smaller fleets, meaning that existing equipment is forced to put in more hours leading to higher service costs and more unplanned downtime for maintenance and repairs.
