Price, quality and healthy margins

Competitive prices and good quality prompt a decision to buy. But how can the manufacturer meet with both of these demands, without failing to achieve a healthy margin?


Here you can gain an insight into successful production methods from the metal machining industry:

   

Aircraft Construction

 

Aeroplanes are becoming increasingly large and yet ever lighter. The special materials required for this exact severe loads on the tools used. The processing of composite materials in particular is critical. Vibrations must be minimised because these will otherwise have a particularly negative effect on production.

Automotive Construction

 

When constructing motor vehicles precision machining is essential. The processing components are heavily stressed here. In series production in particular the lifetimes of the tools have a decisive influence over the efficiency of production. Even the smallest process improvements result in a clear reduction in costs.

Tooling / Mold Construction

 

Only the high quality of the mould guarantees the consistent quality of the production parts. It is therefore highly essential that precision tools and clamping systems are used. The tinniest irregularity or dimensional deviation in the mould results in a significant reduction in the quality of the end product.

Machine Manufacturers

 

A practical test takes place prior to the investment in a new machine. The potential buyer is interested in the commercial viability. A decision regarding the right clamping system is also vital from the outset. Retrospective adjustments to programming or a change in the holding system would result in increased unit costs.

Medical Engineering

 

When producing technical medical devices it is necessary to process challenging materials. It is essential to fulfil the highest of tolerances. Absolute process assurance is essential in order to ensure rapid and seamless certification. The right processing parameters are vital here and these will also reduce the rejection quota.

Watch & Clock Makers

 

Watch-making demands the utmost accuracy within the tightest space. The tinniest dimensional deviations mean that production must start anew, which in turn means that costs become unnecessarily high. It is therefore essential that the clamping system functions with the utmost precision and maximum reliability.

One-off & Serial Manufacturers

 

Not all manufacturers in the metal machining industry operate within one industry sector. Make-to-order manufacturers, small and large series producers and those working under the commission of other manufacturers in a wide range of industries face challenges that are as diverse as the workpieces they produce.
