STA-PUT HOSES CASE STUDY

An automotive radio parts stamping plant used 3 to 5, 1/4" open copper tubes of various lengths on each machine to help eject the parts quicker. The plant has 57 stamping machines. Moving, cleaning, and changing the dies on the stamping machines meant bending, crimping and often changing the 1/4" copper tubes to get them in the right position for blow-off.

The life of the copper tubes being replaced on each machine was 2 to 3 days. The cost to the company of (replacing the tubes was 20 minutes of a maintenance man’s time for cutting a new piece of tubing, cost of tubing, cost of compression fittings, time to reconnect the tube at the right spot, and down time for the machine.

The Sta-Put Hose with a 1/4" copper rod retains its shape and resists crimping or breaking. The Model 40000 Sta-Put Hose lasted 3 months before it needed replacing. The cost of a Sta-Put Hose versus the cost of the often replaced copper tube was much less, so the decision to change to the Sta-Put hose was simple and very convenient.

With the 48009 Air Saver Nozzle in the end of the Sta-Put, the noise reduction in the plant dropped 20%. Also, the compressed air saving from the Air Saver Nozzle Model 48009 versus the open 1/4" copper tubes allowed the company to shut down a 50 Hp compressor resulting in an additional savings of $16,000 per year.
