Cost Savings – $12,000
Right in the middle of grape season, the customer’s gearbox failed on one of only two stemmer machines in the plant.
ErieTec was able to contact the manufacturer and have a replacement built that night and delivered to the plant at 6:30am the following morning.
Cost Savings Calculation
The customer estimated that downtime was costing them $1,000 per hour and we saved them 12 hours of downtime, totaling $12,000. There’s additional savings in the form of less wear and tear on the second stemmer that was working to excess while the first stemmer was down.
