PLANT AND TOOLING OPTIMIZATION

Further increase in productivity

During the optimization phase, we advise you on how to further increase your productivity and implement these measures together with you. The configuration and implementation of machine expansions and reconditioning round off our wide-ranging service offers.

Potential analysis

You would like to find out how to increase productivity and profit with your system.

We start the customized potential analysis for your system by analyzing the numbers. The main goal of the analysis is finding approaches to increase the efficiency and profitability of your system. During the potential analysis, we screen the production processes of your system, identify potentials and demonstrate process and productivity gaps.

We determine optimization potentials and calculate their financial effects. This way, we show which costs lead to weak points. Then we create a target concept to describe the solutions and efforts that allow the greatest potentials to be realized.

Your benefit: After a detailed analysis of the production processes of your Bihler system and description of all potentials, you receive a catalog of measures to increase efficiency, productivity and savings and thus increase your profit. The potential analysis provides you with the security of doing the right thing.

Cutting tool optimization

You simply want to increase productivity and efficiency of your cutting tool.

This is why we offer our “Cutting tool optimization” consultation. The main focus of this consultation lies on finding and implementing approaches for increasing the service life of your cutting tool, increasing your productivity for stamping operations and improving your stamping results. First, our experts analyze the design of your cutting tools in our in-house toolmaking department. Then the actual tool components are assessed in detail.

We demonstrate possible design, process and productivity weaknesses. We determine optimization potentials and calculate their financial effects. This shows you which costs lead to weak points. Then we create a target concept to describe the solutions and efforts that allow the greatest potentials to be realized. In cooperation with you we then implement the optimization measures.

Your benefit: By optimizing your cutting tool, the process and economic efficiency of your Bihler system is increased significantly.

System expansion

You want to implement new tasks on your existing Bihler system.

This means that you need to extend your system with additional mechanical and electronic modules, for instance an NC drive. Complex modifications or extensions with new tools can also be on your to-do list. Our experts are ready to assist you. They configure the complete expansion of your Bihler system. The modification then takes place on-site at your facilities in the shortest possible time.

Your benefit: The system expansion is precisely tailored to your needs. It increases your process reliability and production efficiency, minimizes setup times and helps you expand your product portfolio on your existing system.

Control system modernization

Your existing control system no longer meets the increased requirements.

We rejuvenate your control system. This means that our experts replace all electrical wires and cables. Following this, we replace the main drive as well as the lubrication and pneumatic components with new units.

As an option, our experts also replace the hydraulics and tool sensor components. If required, they complete machine-specific extensions to integrate additional devices and implement interfaces to additional units. Our experts plan the entire control system modernization. Implementation then takes place on-site at your facilities in the shortest possible time.

Your benefit: Your control system is updated to the current state of technology. This means you benefit from the full availability of spare parts and consequently from higher production reliability. With the new control functions, you achieve a significant increase in productivity.

Machine overhaul

Your existing system no longer meets the increased requirements.

We rejuvenate your system. This always includes a refurbishment of the control system with all associated components. In addition, our experts completely dismantle your machine. The housing is sandblasted and freshly painted. The machine mechanics as well as the bull gear or the process modules are reconditioned. Our experts plan the entire overhaul of your machine. The machine overhaul then takes place at our Bihler plant in Füssen.

Your benefit: Your control system is updated to the current state of technology and all relevant mechanical components are reconditioned. You practically have a new machine after the overhaul. This is also documented by a factory warranty.
