    processes to carrying out complex and customised functions that demand advanced analytical and technical skills A recent survey by the Outsourcing Institute revealed that senior executives across all sectors of industry are now considering outsourcing such functions as end user IT support records management staffing and recruitment facilities management distribution and logistics and fleet operations There was no mention of manufacturing processes yet I would contend that heat treatment the thermal processing of metals and alloys to impart properties that enhance their working life has all the hallmarks of a prime candidate for outsourcing Heat treatment is a non core manufacturing process that carries massive overheads in equipment manpower energy consumption maintenance and insurance premiums it escalates the carbon footprint and requires continuing investment to keep pace with changing techniques and emissions standards What are known as captive heat treaters CPTs those with in house facilities might arguably benefit where they are handling high volumes of fairly limited product types and immediate treatment is an integral part of the manufacturing process but otherwise outsourcing this function is a no brainer if you ll excuse the expression and I will tell you why Cuts processing costs it s a matter of economies of scale We heat treat components for hundreds of customers and are more cost effective than in house facilities processing more limited volumes besides which we must offer attractive terms to provide a competitive service Reduces in house overheads we operate a 24 hour heat treatment facility and the overheads of running furnaces staffing costs regulatory compliance maintenance training sickness and holiday provisions capital investment and ongoing upgrades are massive but at least we defray these across numerous contracts Achieves greater flexibility CPTs may understand their current heat treatment processes well but changes in material new product lines or heightened customer specifications will all demand knowledge and techniques they simply do not have in house whereas outsourcing will bring the necessary flexibility Releases valuable workspace furnaces and other heat treatment kit take up considerable expensive floorspace not to mention storage areas for consumables and work in progress whereas out sourcing releases that space for core activities at the same time reducing insurance premiums Accesses new technology heat treatment technology is changing all the time from computerised furnace controls to new quenching methods and outsourcing gives manufacturers access to a broader range of alternative treatments and updated methodology from an expert supplier Improves carbon footprint energy consumption is the biggest associated heat treatment cost so outsourcing non core thermal processing enables customers to implement plant wide carbon reduction initiatives as well as cutting waste disposal costs Avoids training problems there is now a dearth of trained metallurgists with much of the knowledge of treatments and processes largely confined to contract heat treaters so outsourcing eliminates the expense and headache of difficult to arrange external training Enhances product quality experienced contract heat treaters like ourselves can advise on alternative methods and materials that would improve product performance while our qualified metallurgists
