Multinational Conglomerate Finds a Solution For 500 Welding Leads and Saves Over $220K

CUSTOMER PROBLEM:

The ordinary welding cable our customer was using wasn’t holding up to the abusive environment it was in. They were using it throughout the facility — indoor and outdoor — and it was continually getting nicked and pinched and covered in drops of steel. They were repairing the cable every two months or so.

TPC SOLUTION:

We knew the TSE jacket on our Super-Trex® brand DC Welding cable would hold up to the weld splatter as well as heat and flame. Since it was being used inside and out, we made sure to recommend a cable that continued to stay flexible in all weather conditions, too.

CUSTOMER’S RESULT:

Initially, the customer was hesitant to spend the extra money on TPC cable. After seeing the results, that is not a concern. Our customer changed out the cable on 500 welding units resulting in a material cost savings of $167,750, a labor savings of over $52,000 for a total saving of over $220,000. We last checked in with them at 6 months after the change out and the TPC cable had not been repaired or replaced on any of the units — increasing their production by 2,250 hours!

TPC PRODUCT: Super-Trex® DC Welding Cable

Total Savings in Material and Labor = $220,000 and Increased Production by 2,250 Hours
