Every day, thousands of manufacturers around the world looking for new ways to reduce their production costs. Among the many dilemmas they face, there is one recurring question: "how to reduce the cost of my shot-blasting operations?"
The problem is that, in reality, abrasives only represents 20% of the total cost of blasting operations. So even if you reduce the amount you spend by 10%, it will only ever translate as a 2% saving on the overall cost of the operation.
Is there a better solution?
Yes, by considering all the elements involved: manpower, machines, maintenance, spare parts, wear, energy and waste, as well as the shot itself. That's what we call the TCO approach : Total Cost of Operation.
