Learn how to achieve high ROI effectively with Matsuura’s pallet pool system.

During times of uncertainty, manufacturers must address current challenges while planning for the unexpected.

A recent state of manufacturing survey found that 89% of manufacturers were negatively impacted by the pandemic (e.g., revenue decreases, price increases, supply chain issues, etc.).

However, many manufacturers found new opportunities during the pandemic and continue to Future-Proof their manufacturing processes.

Success in today’s world of manufacturing hinges on adapting your processes to be profitable for years to come, using new technologies and techniques that are secure and scalable for the long-term.

“The coronavirus pandemic has devastated many businesses, but Matsuura is busy — demand has skyrocketed for 5-axis unmanned automation solutions that allow manufacturers the ability to respond swiftly to customers’ needs and run unmanned in the evening and on weekends,” according to Craig St. John, President of Matsuura USA.

Why is Matsuura busy while many other machine tool builders have seen a 30% to 40% drop in business this year?

“The pandemic is driving a shift in companies’ use of technology. Successful shops are implementing 5-sided machining and palletized solutions to reduce set-up time and gain unmanned machine time. This shift in how to make parts helps Matsuura since we have delivered these solutions for over 20 years, and have gotten good at it,” St. John explained.

These savvy Matsuura manufacturers have learned how to improve product quality, machine utilization, and reduce unplanned downtime, all of which contribute to a Future-proofed operation.

Few machine tool builders have perfected this type of automation and the organizations incorporating the technology have tremendous competitive advantages. Matsuura is an innovator in the development of high-speed machining and the manufacture of automated, unmanned high accuracy CNC machine tools builds machines from the ground up to run unattended.

“The skills gap is here to stay, technology is constantly progressing, and the competitive nature of manufacturing is growing on a national and global scale,” St. John concluded.
