Mining Equipment Supplier utilizes SSP as a single Source for Mining Teeth
Case Study: Single-source solution for heat treated forged parts.
Customer: A Canadian supplier of heavy-duty mining teeth
Application: Mining teeth for Excavators and Bulldozers.
Problem: The customer needed a reliable source for high volumes of forged and heat-treated mining teeth. The process of locating and qualifying a separate forging and heat-treating source in the US while ensuring a quality product is both time-consuming and costly.
Southwest Steel Processing (SSP) is fully automated and can forge up to 3,000 parts per day on their two forging lines. Enabling SSP to produce the large quantities the customer required, in a shorter time compared to an overseas supplier. SSP also has the capabilities and capacity to do the heat-treating needed on these forgings.
SSP’s heat treating capabilities saves the customer time, money, and hassle of additional suppliers. SSP has the ability to Normalize, Annealed or Quench & Temper the customer’s forgings, eliminating the need for the customer to qualify an additional source, there is no need for purchasing to place another set of orders for the same parts. Lead times and transportation costs are cut down dramatically with a single source forger.
