Small cost, big improvement

Following a free R&D intervention by the University of Sheffield’s AMRC, a precision engineering SME has been shown how an investment of just £20 could bring about a huge improvement in its manufacturing process and unlock significant savings. The AMRC was able to show management at Chesterfield-based subcontractor CBE+ that with a new tool holder, which would cost £60 rather than the £40 one currently in use, it could attain a 10-15% improvement in tool life. Funds from the HVM Catapult paid for the project as part of a commitment to working with SME manufacturers.
