Planning on a single shift for right now, 2nd shift to be added as demand increases. We're definitely not a lights out shop. This cell will have an operator loading/unloading material racks, checking measurements and changing inserts. The 6 minute part to part cycle time is for the whole production line, we should be below that for actual cycle time which will allow for tip changes and changeovers. If we don't quite hit our cycle time targets, machines can be run on second shift to catch up.At 240 pcs/day, how are you planning to schedule insert changes?
I think this is still the better plan.
If you space your chuck forward far enough you can install four drills in the same machine at stations 1, 4, 7, and 10 (assuming 12 station turret). That'll keep this machine uninterrupted for 4X longer.
We've automated four lathes and 10+ mills. The common bottleneck on all of them is always tooling.
