The Upside of Better Inventory Control through Industrial Vending Machines

Everyone wants to run lean these days. But few companies actually succeed.

It’s no secret that lean management strategies can reduce costs, increase productivity and help companies compete. Yet, many companies fail when trying to implement these strategies in their production facilities.

One of the first steps in implementing a lean management program is effectively managing inventory, but without complete visibility into usage those efforts often fall short. Management rarely understands exactly how and where inventory items are being used without some form of tracking in place.

The result? Ineffective inventory control processes that rely on spreadsheet data or the honor system typically resulting in missing inventory, shrinkage or excessive inventory that ties up cash flow and collects dust.

Thinking about improving your inventory control processes? Here are 5 reasons to stop thinking and start doing:

  1. Reduce costs associated with inventory purchasing.
    Without a clear view into the consumption of inventory items, how do you know what material is necessary for optimum production? The short answer is: You don’t. When you can track where and how inventory is being consumed, you can dial in just the right amount to hold in stock, saving time and money in purchasing.
  2. Improve production rates and decrease worker downtime.
    When you have mission-critical items on hand, work gets done. Think of the time it takes employees to search for missing items or procure them at higher cost. Not only does this result in delayed production, but it also wastes manhours and increases inventory costs. Better inventory management ensures you have the tools and supplies you need on hand when you need them.
  3. Reduce lead time and make customers sticky.
    If you are constantly running out of inventory, then you know how frustrating it is to wait for items to be replenished.From the time the items are ordered to the time they arrive on your doorstep can take days and, in some cases, weeks. Yet most companies fail to account for this delay in their project estimates. The longer this takes, the more it impacts your ability to deliver and the more customers start to look elsewhere.
  4. Free cash flow.
    Ineffective inventory control can tie up cash that you could be investing in other areas of your business. Crazy to think that what may be holding your business back from increased success are covered in dust in a storage room. By implementing a better inventory control program, you can boost your cash flow almost immediately.
  5. Improve customer satisfaction rates.
    You are in business to make money and part of doing so is making your customers happy. By knowing exactly what inventory you have on hand at any given time, you can meet customer demands, improve order fulfillment and create sustainable pricing models based on accurate cost analysis, rather than relying on guesswork.

Many manufacturers are introducing vending to their facilities to vend commonly used consumables such as disposable earplugs and gloves, as well as high-value, returnable items such as drills, saws and cutting tools. With traditional coil machines, locker units and combination coil and locker machines, there’s not much that can’t be vended. What does that mean for production facilities? It means your team always has the equipment they need to work efficiently, and improved visibility in the inventory items you need to control.

M&M Sales & Equipment is excited to partner with vending and inventory control specialist 1sourcevend to offer a simple, yet powerful inventory control solution. Learn more now.

The Guide to Choosing the Right Saw Blades for Optimum Productivity

Choosing the right saw blade is critical to a manufacturing facility or machine shop’s profitability and productivity. Not doing so can lead to shorter blade life or complete blade failure diminishing any potential for efficiency. So, we created a handy guide that can help break down the terminology surrounding saw blade selection, as well as provide tips on extending blade life and how to properly break in your new blade. Whether you are sawing large workpieces or difficult to cut materials, knowing your blade can mean the difference between making money or losing it.

Common Saw Blades

Source: Lenox Tools

Circular Saw Blades: For use with miter saws, table saws, radial arm saws, cut-off saws and standard circular saws, these blades come in a variety of materials that can cut metal, wood, cement, glass or laminates. We sell a variety of metal circular saw blades from names like Lenox, Fein and Evolution! Be sure to ask about our Fiber cut-off wheels from Pferd and United Abrasives/SAIT.

Carbide Tipped Band Saw Blades: Designed to cut composites, metal and wood. High-performance steel and optimized carbide grades cut faster and last longer in a wide variety of sawing applications. For band saw blades, we offer a wide selection of blades from Lenox, Starrett and Arntz.

Bi-Metal Band Saw Blades: Bi-metal band saw blades are among the most versatile choice for most metal sawing applications involving a wide variety of materials such as aluminum and non-ferrous metals, carbon and structural steel. They’re cost effective, perform well and have long blade life with high-speed tooth tips and flexible alloy steel back.

Carbon Band Saw Blades: Economical and reliable, carbon band saw blades are great for general purpose and utility sawing. They are used to cut a variety of materials from carbon steels and aluminum to abrasive materials such as wood and fiberglass. Ideal for small maintenance and light-production shops.

Reciprocating Saw Blades: Whether it’s tile, clay, wood, cast iron, bricks or metals there’s a reciprocating saw blade for the job. Reciprocating saws are versatile in that you can swap out different blades for different materials. Ideal for maintenance, demo or repair applications.

Cold Saw Blades: High-speed steel cold saw blades are often used for cutting pipes, tubes and other solid steel materials. Many types of cold saw blades can be re-sharpened and used several times before replacing. The name comes from the transfer of heat energy during the cutting process. The blade and work material stay cold and the heat is expelled in the chip.

Grit Edge Saw Blades: Carbide Grit Edge Blades offer a seamless cut into abrasive and hardened materials, fiberglass, steel belted radial tires and other composites.

Hole Saws: Hole saw blades cut clean and accurate holes in a variety of materials from metals, woods or plastics.

Annular Cutters: Similar to a hole saw but runs in a magnetic drill. We offer a variety of premium annular cutters from FEIN.

Did you know? M&M Sales & Equipment can weld ¼-inch to 1 ½ inch wide saw blade material to any length on site; we also have the most popular lengths in stock from our supplier partners.

Understanding the Parts of Your Saw Blade

The Gullet is the space between each saw tooth that allows for efficient chip removal. The larger the material or the faster the feed rate, the deeper the gullet (such as in a 2/3 variable tooth blade that has a much bigger gullet than an 8/12 variable tooth’s gullet) and the more chips that are expelled.

Tooth Construction is another critical part of how your saw blades are made. Different tooth constructions offer different advantages. For instance, a carbide tipped tooth offers a longer lasting and smoother cutting blade.

Tooth Form refers to the shape of the tooth. The shape impacts how a blade cuts through material and can extend blade life, control noise level and provide a smoother cut and chip capacity.

  • Variable Positive shape offers variable tooth spacing and gullet capacity for less noise and vibration, while simultaneously allowing for faster cuts, longer blade life and smoother cuts.
  • Variable shape is similar to Variable Positive, but can be used for slower cutting rates.
  • Standard is a good multipurpose shape that can be used in many various applications.
  • Skip shape has a wide gullet ideal for non-metallic applications.
  • Hook shape is similar to the Skip, but can be used on metal and non-metal applications.

Tooth Set refers to the number of teeth and the angle that they are offset. Different tooth sets impact cutting efficiency and chip carrying ability. For a clear visual on how tooth set can differ, refer to this guide from Lenox Tools.

Kerf Width is the width of the cut made by the blade into the desired material. Full kerf blades remove about 1/8” of material, while thin kerfs generally remove about 3/32” of material. Because the full kerf removes more material, it’s best to use with a more powerful saw. Thin kerf blades can be used with saws that use less horsepower.

Other consumables that can help or hinder cutting conditions are choices of hydraulic oil and cutting fluids. But it always comes down to blade selection. Choosing a better crafted blade designed for an application results in better wear and heat-resistance, fewer changeouts, better accuracy and less waste.

Learn more about blade maintenance in “How Do I Choose the Right Saw Blade for My Project? 

To avoid blade failure and get the most out of your new saw blade, remember these blade break-in tips:

  1. Choose the proper band speed for material to be cut.
  2. Set the beginning band feed rate at 50% of normal/recommended feed rate.
  3. Begin the first cut and once 50-70 in2  of material has been cut, gradually increase feed rate to normal.
  4. If chatter/noise occurs, adjust cutting speed.

How to Choose the Right Drill Bit for Your Application

Drill bits. One of the most useful and versatile tools that exist. You may be surprised to know that using the wrong one can not only hinder production, but could be costing more than you may think. That’s why it’s important to choose drill bits that are optimized for the application. Otherwise, you’re likely to be replacing the bits and the tools too often. Not only that, but you risk damaging the workpiece and having to start over.

Machinists and fabricators use drills daily, and proper drill bit selection can save both time and money. If you are looking to get the best machining result, here are some things to consider when choosing a drill bit for your next project.

Choosing the Right Drill Bit for the Job

Morse Cutting Tools – HSS

There are countless drill bits on the market today, making selection both difficult and time consuming. Two main categories of drill bits include standard bits used with handheld drills or drill presses and boring machine bits that are used in automated machinery like drill banks and CNC machines. Here are some brief explanations of various types of drill bits.

Twist Drill bits are the most common and can be used in a variety of everyday tasks from drilling woods, metal and plastic. They are made from High-Speed Steel or Carbon Steel.

Counterbore bits create a flat bottom blind hole with a smaller diameter center hole. These are often used to create a recess that can hide a fastener head.

Countersink bits create a tapered surface hole with a smaller center hole to allow fastener to sit flush with the material.

Flat Bottom Boring bits are similar to counterbores, but do not have a center drill.

Specialty bits are essentially all bits that don’t fit into the above categories and can be used with glass, tile or other specialty materials.

Coolant Through Drills have coolant ports that run through the drill and feed coolant to the cutting edge, allowing for faster cutting and improved chip evacuation. Used in high performance drilling operations.

Exchangeable Tip Drills have replaceable carbide heads or tips that saves time when changing tools and saves money over larger solid carbide drills. They also boost productivity in many machining applications.

Spade Drills have spade inserts that allow for cost effective drilling of deep holes and large diameter holes. They also run well on older machines and at lower speeds than high performance carbide drills.

Inserted Drills have multiple carbide inserts that handle the metal cutting. They are faster than HSS and cobalt drills, are cost effective and many can be used to “turn” the hole to a larger diameter than the drill size, much like using a boring bar in a lathe.

Understanding Drill Bit Materials

Drillco Drills

Certain tooling and machining operations require specialized drill bits that allow for effective drilling, without burning out too quickly.  Below, you’ll find some common drill bit materials and their uses.

Cobalt (HSCO): Despite being more brittle than HSS, cobalt drill bits are ideal for drilling harder steel as well as stainless steel grades. They are often more expensive than other drill bits but tend to last longer.

Carbide (Carb): Carbide is considered the hardest and most brittle drill bit material and can cut hardened steel, stainless steel and aluminum with ease. Ask if the CoroDrill 860 from Sandvik Coromant is right for you.

Diamond: These bits are effective for drilling tile, stone or other hard material and the use of water is recommended to prevent damage to the workpiece or tool. These are costly, so they are recommended for use in very specific tasks.

High-Speed Steel (HSS): High-Speed Steel bits are harder, more resistant to heat and can drill metal at greater cutting speeds than high-carbon steel. Ask about our HSS drills from Morse or Drillco that are available in a variety of lengths, including jobber and stub/screw.  

How Flute Design Impacts Cut

Flutes are grooves that are cut into the body of the drill bits to provide cutting surfaces, permit removal of chips and allow cutting fluids to reach cutting surfaces. There are different variations of flutes, but here are some common ones you should know.

Standard: Standard flutes are the most common and have a circular cross section.

Parabolic Design: This refers to the open geometry and faster spiral of a twist drill bit. It offers improved chip evacuation, increased feed rate, shorter cycle times and reduces the need for a peck cycle. It’s also less likely to jam and break.

Straight Flute: Used when drill rigidity is more important than chip evacuation, especially in short chipping materials. Also, can be used when the workpiece is spinning instead of the drill itself.

Drill Point Coatings Explained

Coatings reduce friction when drilling. That reduction of heat helps to protect the drill bit and improves the flow of material out of the hole. See below for a brief explanation of various drill point coatings.

Black Oxide is a black surface coating that improves heat resistance, reduces friction and increases chip flow.

Bronze Oxide coatings help to increase tempering and relieves stress on the bit.

Bright drill points do not have a coating, but they are polished for increased chip flow and can be used in plastics, woods and aluminum.

Titanium Nitride (TiN) coatings help drills run faster and increases tool life because it increases the hardness of the bit. Look for drill points to be gold in color.

Titanium Carbonitride (TiCN) is ideal for stainless steel, cast iron and aluminum as it is harder and more wear-resistant than other coatings. Look for drill points to be a blue-gray in color.

Titanium Aluminum Nitride (TiALN) is ideal for use in high-alloy carbon steels, nickel-based materials and titanium, but should not be used for drilling aluminum. Look for drill point color to be violet.

“Man must shape his tools lest they shape him.”

Introducing the New Left Hand Drill Kit from Drillco

Ever snap the head off of a bolt or screw? If you’ve ever had to remove a broken screw or back out part of a broken thread, you know that it can be rather difficult. You’ve probably tried the punch and hammer method, drilling and tapping or even tried an air hammer to do the job, but that may only work when it’s located in the perfect spot, and the moon and stars are aligned. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Every application is different, and it’s good to have options.

Some methods can leave you worse for wear, either by ruining the threads or mushrooming out the top of the fastener. That’s why many people find left hand drill bits to work better and faster than alternatives such as easy-outs that often snap off and leave a bigger problem behind. Why not use a regular drill bit? You’ve probably noticed that if you were to use a regular drill bit in a clockwise direction, you would actually tighten the screw in further and blunt the drill bit. You certainly don’t want that.

How does a left hand drill bit work?

A left hand drill bit is a useful tool when trying to remove a broken screw or a bolt that has had the head sheared off. It works by biting into the broken fastener and pulling the screw out of the hole. For faster removal, you can use a center drill puncher to make a center mark before you get started. It creates an indentation so you can drill where you actually want to drill.

The New Left Hand Drill Kit from DRILLCO removes broken bolts, screws and other fasteners without an extractor. In the market for a left hand drill kit? Check out these exclusive features:

  • Cobalt Steel Material for excellent heat and wear resistance
  • 135° Split Point reduces walking and engages fasteners more easily
  • Bronze Surface Treatment for maximum lubricity and acts as protective layer
  • 3-Flat Shank for less slippage in drill chuck
  • Lightweight, compact rollup pouch for storage
  • Kit contains 11 of the most frequently used sizes

Left hand drill bits can save you serious time and money. If you’re interested in improving your productivity and profitability, contact us today. The pros at M&M Sales & Equipment are happy to help you find solutions to all your metal cutting needs.

Sandvik Coromant Spotlight: Improve Your Machine Shop’s Burden Rate

Are you accurately assessing your operational costs? Many production facilities try to roll equipment costs and operating costs into one overhead account and then attempt to apply it to the entire shop. At a minimum, two problems can come from that:

  • You could dramatically underprice your rates for some parts and never be able to cover the cost of production.
  • You could overprice and drive business straight out of those departments.

If you don’t accurately assess the true costs associated with each machine or each part, you’ll never get a full return on your investment, and that’s when your business suffers.

Take a look at your production costs. What does it cost per hour to run your equipment? What is your output rate per part? Your scrap rate? If you think your shop could run faster, leaner and more efficient, you’re probably right. That’s exactly where M&M Sales & Equipment shines. Not only do we have extensive product knowledge, but our staff are among the few in the industry that have real metal cutting-application experience. We know the cutting tools and supplies you need because we’ve been in your shoes.

We specialize in helping you overcome production challenges. Our customers know that they can come to us with questions and we’ll work to find solutions. Check out this example of a customer who needed help optimizing their cutting process:

Recently, a customer contacted M&M Sales & Equipment for a better and faster cutting solution. They were fabricating the same part, but from two different materials. One was stainless steel and the other low carbon steel. Their challenge was making the same hole in the center of the bar and wanted to use one drill for both materials for faster production.

One of our knowledgeable representatives went out to the facility to observe the process and offered a solution. Not only that, they tested that solution and dialed it in for optimal performance.

That solution was the Sandvik Coromant CoroDrill ® 880.

Anyone can sell a product. It takes experience to sell a solution. That Sandvik Coromant CoroDrill 880 could cut both materials, but it didn’t end there. Not only could it effectively cut the stainless steel and the low carbon steel, it did so efficiently. The drill cut faster, more consistently and didn’t fail prematurely, which meant less downtime and more time savings.

When you look at your shop’s fixed cost of producing a part, so many dollars will be spent no matter how you slice it. That’s your labor and burden rate. The only way to produce that part at a lower cost is to produce it faster with less waste. We can help you spec out the right tools and supplies you need to process a part, minimize scrap and reduce wear on your machines, ultimately improving your burden and job completion rates.
