Much has been written in the past about the benefits of a quick die-change system. Speed, safety, and labor cost reductions are all significant factors in considering whether a QDC system is right for your shop. However, in today's competitive business environment, the factor shop owners consider most is the return on Investment or ROI. That is, when will a QDC system pay for itself?
And begin to pay dividends for their business?
Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to that question, as each business is unique, and each will have different results. But one thing is clear, the more often you change dies, the more you need a QDC system, and the faster that system will pay for itself.
The graph above illustrates this point. The graph assumes a $100 savings per die-change related to reduced machine downtime and fewer labor hours per die-change. Most shops save much more than that, and these assumptions do not include cost avoidance and ancillary benefits, which further increase the savings but would require a dissertation from an accountant to explain. Nobody wants to read that!
So what is the bottom line? Based on just two dies changes per week, a QDC system can pay for itself in as little as 6 months, and the more die changes you make, the sooner the system begins adding to your bottom line. It's that simple. As you can see, even with these conservative assumptions, the return on investment for a QDC system can be quite impressive.
