Case Study: CV Tool & Engineering Co.

Posted on 13th July 2017 in

CV Tool and Engineering Co (CV Tool) is a specialist service engineering company located in Dandenong South, Victoria.

OBJECTIVES

Nitrogen gas is widely used to blanket precision laser cutting as its inert properties prevent
oxidisation of the cut edge while the gas pressure ensures a clean cut without any residual material sticking to the underside.

In many cases, nitrogen from traditional liquid and cylinder supply methods can account for over 60% of the total laser running costs. In an extremely competitive marketplace, reducing these gas costs can ensure a significant advantage.

CV Tool had been using bottled nitrogen for their laser cutting blanketing process and were renting nitrogen storage tanks. They were very keen to reduce their operating costs.

SOLUTION

Personnel from CAPS visited CV Tool’s site and discovered that their existing compressed air system had excess capacity that could go towards an on-site nitrogen generation system.
Based on site requirements, CAPS recommended and supplied a Won Hi Tech nitrogen generator system that is 40Nm3/hr at 99.5% purity with a large storage tank.

BENEFITS

The nitrogen generation system supplied by CAPS came at a significantly low investment to CV Tool, particularly since they had no need to purchase an air compressor. CV Tool is now able to produce their total demand for nitrogen gas on-premise, under their complete control.

Most importantly, the company will now achieve long-term savings between 40-80%, depending on current bottled nitrogen prices.

Installing the nitrogen generator has been a very good capital investment – no more downtime waiting for expensive nitrogen deliveries and no more expensive rentals on nitrogen storage tanks.
