In the present time of intense competition, it is natural that engineers are trying hard to optimize the use of every resource to reduce costs. In Metalizing, Evaporation Boats undoubtedly contribute most in variable cost. It is therefore important that maximum life is derived from Evaporation Boats without affecting the quality of Metalizing.
Points mentioned above are quite easy to implement and best of all do not cost an extra rupee. This however can result in a saving of about Rs. 9, 00,000/- per year per metallizer (a typical metallizer uses about 300 boats per month, costing about Rs.1, 000 per boat. Saving is 300 x12 x1000 x25% = Rs.9, 00,000/-). This is not all; implementation of these actions will also lead to better metalizing quality, better maintained plant and saving of costly power also.
