Bombardier Aerospace was able to achieve a 91% savings on setup time and total saving of 81% on cycle time by incorporating a system from Advanced Machine & Engineering in a fabrication process for its Learjet Models 40, 45, and 60. Bombardier was running 240 different parts through a cell comprised of four horizontal four-axis machines with a 28-pallet system and one vertical five-axis machine with an eight-pallet system. By incorporating AME's subplates with hardened precision bushings and hardened threaded inserts on a 2-in system with full-grid tombstones, the company was able to run 800 different parts through two cells and reach its Six Sigma goals.
