POOR ATTEMPTS AT WEAR PLATE SAVINGS COSTS TIME & MONEYJADCO • Rich F.
Working with wear-resistant steel in heavy industry, we are often overwhelmed by daily, if not hourly issues and challenges. Early in my career, I would ask people what wear problems they had experienced, and surprisingly, 90% of the people responded that they didn’t have ANY wear problems. This was confusing to me since a quick glance at their equipment revealed several places where things had worn out, were patched, or worse, both. What took some time to realize is people don’t want to admit they have a ‘problem’. It is okay to struggle or have challenges and issues, but people often don’t acknowledge they have problems.
HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED “WHAT SHOULD I DO FIRST?” OFTEN A BETTER QUESTION WHEN YOU ARE SURROUNDED BY NUMEROUS PROBLEMS IS, “WHAT SHOULD I NOT DO AT THIS TIME?”
If you have 1,000 options; paralysis often sets to the point where you don’t have many options. And because zero progress is made, you actually go backward. What You Need To Do First: Is being systematic in how you put aside all the things that don’t immediately improve your results.
BEGIN BY ASKING YOURSELF: WHICH WEAR PLATE CHALLENGE NEEDS TO BE SOLVED FIRST? THEN ASK YOURSELF THE NEXT QUESTION, “HOW DO I SOLVE THE FIRST ISSUE THAT SOLVES A DOZEN OTHER PROBLEMS?”
When you start with this method, it will help your massive number of obstacles and issues into smarter, focused actions. When you think about it on a daily basis, there are many things that do not accomplish the job they are intended to do. Never confuse motion with accomplishment. The two concepts deliver vastly different results. Yet there are a few ongoing things that are irritating enough to rant about to co-workers, family or friends.
THAT IS EXACTLY WHERE YOU NEED TO FOCUS YOUR ENERGY TO PREVENT THE FIRST DOMINO EFFECT FROM CONTROLLING YOUR EFFORTS. AND HOW DO YOU PREVENT ALL THIS BEFORE IT HAPPENS?
With the correct quality wear-resistant steel that tolerates both high-stress grinding abrasion and heavy impact. While many wear plates claim to be through-hardened, most do not live up to the claim.
JADCO’s QT-PLUS® delivers greater performance IN YOUR WEAR APPLICATIONS than the various AR400 steel plates you have used previously. Being able to create wear-resistant steel having the same hardness through the entire thickness of the steel, demands you accurately control the alloying chemistry with precise heat treating.
Then Why Doesn’t Every Steel Company Make Their Wear Materials Last As Long As JADCO QT-PLUS®?
The required attention to detail at the steel mill in Pennsylvania is actually available to anyone. Yet most steel wear plate distributors choose to limit the correct quantities and percentages of these essential elements for the goal of a lower price. Their business plan is to always sell you more of the same underperforming steel in a few months, happily stealing more of your hard-earned profits.
For over the last 40 years JADCO has focused exclusively on delivering consistent, longer equipment life for our customers. Now you understand why we are able to deliver better results to our customers. We think differently by strictly focusing to improve your current results.
