Several questions on moulder output and energy costs are answered. The techniques that will help keep productivity high for moulder output are: 1. Always be safe. 2. Analyze why you make defective pieces. 3. Pay attention to sharpening techniques and knife angles. 4. Consider material flow. 5. Consider scheduling of different profiles. 6. Pay attention to maintenance. 7. Use machine set-up. 8. Consider the opportunity to use higher speed spindles. 9. For smaller runs, consider using a second, smaller moulder, rather than tying up the main machine. 10. Some of the new moulders have computer assists that really help production. If you run a small to medium sized manufacturing company with gross annual sales below $75 million with fewer than 500 employees, you may be especially interested in the Department of Energy's Industrial Assessment Center's "Energy and waste assessment program." Your local power company is very interested in having you save energy, especially during peak use periods. They often conduct free assessments of electrical power use.
