Increased Productivity at Food Processing Plant Results in $30,000 in Cost Savings

Challenge:

A food processing facility was experiencing issues with their gearboxes, resulting in the need to outsource the repairs for motor alignment, which was costing $7,000 per incident.  The facility was looking for the ability to complete the repairs in house to save on outsourcing costs.

Solution:

LineDrive demoed the Fluke 830, showing the customer how easy the tool was to use.  The Fluke 830 allowed them to complete alignments in 2-3 hours, resulting in the time to complete this task being cut in half.

Documented Cost Savings:

By utilizing the Fluke 830, the customer was able to reduce their need to outsource and complete the alignments quicker.  On average, outsourcing was costing the customer $30,000 a year.  $20,000 will be saved in the first year alone by utilizing the Fluke 830 and minimizing the need for outsourcing.
