There is a simple way to calculate the approximated loss amount accumulated by the metallic yield waste. To do so you just need to use our waste calculator.
Thanks to the lack of consistency and accuracy of cut-to-length contact methods, most steel plants adopt a cutting error safety factor. In other words, a tolerance that aims to secure the product so it will not be cut shorter than desired, which is mostly around 1 1/5 in (30 mm).
In fact, few steelmaking plants realize the economic impact due to the adoption of such tolerance, mainly because they do not do all the calculations. For that, we developed a tool specifically to help you on this matter!
