Savings Calculator

The savings calculator is set up to accept inches and millimeters. Just enter four data points and you will immediately see the savings when automating your gouging application.
Step 1: Enter the number of feet or meters being gouged.
Step 2: Enter the carbon diameter to be used in your application.
Step 3: Enter your gouge depth target.
Step 4: Enter you labor/overhead cost.

Note: All figures were derived from using mild steel under laboratory conditions. Field results may vary due to type of metal, nature of power supply, compressed air supply, operators experience and other conditions

All time studies were performed in our laboratory and are thought to be conservative.
