“Here we have a third pallet that we run in a VF-2 (Haas), and we have a Manual Pallet Changer where we run two pallets during the day and we run two shifts total. At the end of the second shift they throw this pallet in there. We utilize our lights out time and this pallet runs for about two hours overnight. We come in in the morning and we pull this pallet out and then it sits here throughout the day. It takes an operator about 20 to 30 minutes to change over the parts, then it’s stored over here again and second shift puts it in for the next night. We get 8-10 hours additional machining time per week by using or lights out.”
