What is MatchPoint™ and Why Do I Need It?
MatchPoint PLANX™ is a precision automated jigging system that enables truss plants to dramatically increase production while simultaneously cutting cost. If you’re unfamiliar with the MatchPoint PLANX, you can learn more about it by clicking here. The important things are, how much money will it save you and can you afford it?
MiTek and Koskovich have conducted studies showing the labor cost savings per truss that are possible with a MatchPoint system. If you build a 35-truss job with an average of 3 trusses built per setup, and your current average setup time is 20 minutes, MatchPoint would save you over $252 in labor costs alone for those 35 trusses. If you bought 20 PLANX, at that rate of labor savings, they would pay for themselves in about a year. To calculate the savings for YOUR plant, use this worksheet.
How Do I Get It…Fast and Cheap?
Fast and cheap...wouldn’t it be nice if everything fit that description? If “fast” means twice the speed you’re used to and “cheap” means less than a one-year ROI, then we can help!
First, though, let’s remember the old adage, “You get what you pay for.” MatchPoint uses robust material and sophisticated technology to ensure accurate trusses and ease of operation. BUT…you do have some options aside from buying a completely new table system. MiTek can retrofit almost any existing table system to include MatchPoint PLANX. There are two ways to do this, and you get to choose which way works best for you.
