Company Focus Production: CNC Milling, CNC Turning, and Assembly High-Volume Production Continuous weekly production Short-Run Production Lot size of 50-500 pieces or more Bridge to production Small lot size of parts that will move to higher production Most Materials; parts up to 16x12” and 2” dia. * MPI can make parts larger than these, ask for details
Business Unit Focus MPI operates as 3 distinct business units Customers fall into one of the 3 business units based on: The complexity of their parts Specific requirements/documentation/ certifications Volume
MPI Business Units High-Volume Production General Industrial Equipment Specialized/Regulated Industries Short-Run Production General Industrial Equipment Capital Equipment Mfg Distribution Short-Run Production Specialized/Regulated Industries Medical Aerospace Extra-ordinary customer specifications
Why A Business Unit Focus? Everyactivity/process undertaken is meant to support & reinforce that business unit’s focus Equipment type Equipment capability Employee capability Capacity/lead-time management Amount of internal processes required Etc.
What does this mean for You? Lower Prices By focusing on production volumes only, all of MPI’s attention is focused on delivering these volumes at the best market price. By not applying any more (or less) processes than what you specifically require we do not make you pay for features you do not need. By saying “no” to certain activities, we can offer consistent delivery and pricesBell Curve of Market Prices of production quantities.& MPI’s position relative toour competitors
Equipment High-Volume Production Horizontal CNC machining centers Pallet changing machines – operator loads/unloads parts while the machine is cutting Swiss-Style Lathes & Twin Spindle/Twin Turret Lathes The potential for “lights-out” manufacturing. Machines run bars of material with little operator intervention
Equipment Short-Run Production Pallet changing Vertical CNC Machining Centers Machine runs while operators loads/unloads Twin-Spindle Vertical CNC Machining Centers Machine cuts 2 parts at the same time Bar-fed Lathes with Live Tooling
Equipment Bridge To Production “Traditional” Vertical CNC Machining Centers Machine doesn’t run while the operator is loading/Unloading CNC Slant Bed Lathes
