Cost Savings: Catching an Error

As much as we want to believe that companies are infallible, sometimes they’re not. Errors can be made in manufacturing or shipping that unfortunately aren’t caught. But because of our extensive experience we often can identify those errors and help you fix them to minimize loss or damage.

Success Story

Industry – Automotive
Region – Central PA
Cost Savings – $756.72+

Problem
The customer was having to change the gears in their right angle worm boxes throughout the plant at significantly increased rate due to abnormal wear.

Solution
ErieTec was able to identify that the gears that were wearing out were actually the incorrect ratio for that worm box. Together with the customer, ErieTec worked with the manufacturer to properly document that the incorrect gears had been sent to them and were offered credit for the incorrect gears and expedited shipping at no extra charge.

Savings Calculation
The gears themselves were a savings of $756.72, but the total savings would be higher than that to include the labor and downtime for switching them out as they failed.
