Extensive stock holding and availability, reducing your downtime
A Fast Moving Consumer Goods customer was experiencing regular breakdowns due to newly installed Megadyne Duplex 1440/8M/30 belts regularly tearing apart within a relatively short time from being mounted. The belts that were in use in 30 machines had to be replaced every other month.
We identified the Gates Twin Power 1440/8M/30 belts as a suitable alternative and delivered the belts within 24 hours. The belts were replaced on 30 engines. As a result, the machines’ downtimes were avoided during production.
Outcome / saving
The downtime and material loss was calculated to be €6,660 for each engine transmission belt. The total cost saving was calculated for all 30 engines.
