As Seen In American Machinist.

Here are a baker’s dozen benefits that can be gained by using pre-cut blanks in machine shops:

  1. The in-house preparation of raw material is eliminated.
  2. Machine-ready blanks do not need to be squared like sawed blanks.
  3. Dimensional, flatness, parallelism, and squareness tolerances can be guaranteed by the supplier.
  4. Secondary operations and fixtures are not needed.
  5. End mill taper issues are eliminated.
  6. Labor requirements are reduced substantially.
  7. With the elimination of prep time, set-up time can be minimized.
  8. Machine-ready blanks can be loaded directly into the CNC machine.
  9. Machining cycle times can be reduced.
  10. Machine-ready blanks can be ground and/or milled two sides at a time versus typical inhouse milling operation of one side at a time.
  11. Operator and machine throughput levels and operational efficiencies can be increased.
  12. The reduction of set-up and cycle times free operators and machines for more production without requiring an increase in labor or more machines.
  13. Overall part costs are reduced by 15 percent or more.
