Consulting

Machine and tool technology

Potential analysis

Costs per day: 1,300 €

We start the customized analysis of the potential of your system by analyzing the numbers. We focus exclusively on finding approaches to increase the efficiency and profitability of your equipment. During the potential analysis, production processes of your systems are screened, potentials identified and process and productivity gaps demonstrated. Optimization potentials are recorded and calculated. This shows which costs are responsible for weaknesses. Then a target concept is created to describe the solutions and efforts that allow the greatest potentials to be realized.

The benefits to you: The analysis of potential provides you with the security of knowing you are doing the right thing. The analysis of potential provides you with the security of knowing you are doing the right Thing.

Cutting tool optimization

Costs per day: 1,300 €

The main focus of our consultation lies in finding and implementing approaches for increasing the service life of your cutting tools, increasing the productivity of your stamping operations and improving your stamping results.

First, our in-house tool making experts analyze the design of your cutting tools. Then the actual tool components are assessed in detail. Design, process and productivity weaknesses are identified. Optimization potentials are recorded and calculated. Then a target concept is created to describe the solutions and efforts that allow the greatest potentials to be realized. In cooperation with you, we implement the optimization measures. The project is completed after it has been shown that the measurable objectives have led to the desired success.

The benefits to you: Optimizing your cutting tools increases the efficiency and profitability of your systems and your equipment.

NEW Cutting gap test

Costs: 580 €

Your task is to design a new cutting tool or optimize an existing cutting tool. One of the most important factors is the correct cutting gap.

A strip progression with different cutting gap sizes is created with a Bihler test tool and your original material. Smooth cutproportion, interruption, radius of entry and the formation of burrs are evaluated and documented. After completion of the tests, you will receive the generated strip progression together with an extensive evaluation. This includes our recommendation for the optimum cutting contour.

Your benefit: The correct cutting gap improves your part quality, increases the tool service life and reduces the creation of chips and flakes.

LEANTOOL - Initial implementation and setup

Costs per day: 1,300 €

You need to implement and set up a new Leantool for your machine?

This is the exact core competence of our experts. They were intensively involved in the development of this new tool technology from the start and have already designed and commissioned a large number of Leantool setups. We provide you with this know-how during our consultation and guide or assist you during the initial setup of your Leantool.

The benefit to you is that your Leantool is perfectly and effectively set up and commissioned on your machine thanks to our experience and expertise. In addition, you learn from our know-how and can profit from this expertise for future tasks.

Manufacturing process optimization

Costs per day: 1,300 €

The main goal of this consultation is optimizing the tool and module setup on your system.

Together with you, our expert analyzes the current state of your production process on-site at your facilities. At the same time, you learn about the influence of various factors on your production activities. Our expert then presents you with the necessary measures for optimum machine and tool settings and implements them directly if possible.

Setup times are also examined carefully. Because These are downtime and must be kept as short as possible. Our expert provides you with a defined procedure to minimize your tool setup and adjustment times.

The benefits to you: By optimizing your production processes, the process and economic efficiency of your system is increased significantly. Standardized setup procedures help minimize errors.

Tool adaptation

Costs per day: 1,300 €

You want to adapt a component previously produced on a cam-controlled machine to your new servo-controlled Bihler machine.

This means you need to adapt and use an existing tool with your servo-controlled machine. This is the exact core competence of our experts. They have successfully completed more than 150 such tool adaptations. Our experts analyze your tool and specify if and which tool parts are required for an adaptation. We then manufacture these tool parts and set them up on your servo-controlled machine together with the existing tool. During setup of tool operation, we optimize the individual movements of the servo axes.

The benefits to you: In the shortest possible time, you produce stamped and formed parts which were formerly produced on a mechanical, cam-controlled Bihler machine on your servo machine. You profit from higher cycle rates and improved accuracy.
