Development of optimal production processes

Take advantage of our innovative tool concepts, many years of experience and our personal advice to increase your productivity.

In order to be able to economically machine increasingly complex workpieces in high quality, all process parameters must be adapted to the respective task. Those who master these challenges remain competitive on the global market.

In day-to-day business, however, there is often not enough capacity to analyse production processes and make them more efficient through optimisation. There is also usually not enough time to adapt new cutting materials, tool geometries or process technologies to the individual machining tasks.

This is exactly where we come in with our project engineering. As one of the leading tool manufacturers and an innovative pulse generator in machining, we develop optimal tool concepts for you that are based on the most important success factors such as efficiency, time and quality.

Why we are the ideal system partner for you? We have many years of experience in the development of innovative tool solutions, can draw on in-depth technical know-how and offer first-class service. In addition, with the leading product brands Cutting Solutions by CERATIZIT, WNT, KOMET and Klenk, we are a full-range supplier in machining and offer one of the most comprehensive ranges of cutting tools and services.

We have already convinced some customers

Workpiece: Device head
Material: EN-AW 6082
Project objective: Complete solution for cycle time optimisation

❗​ Challenge

At BAM GmbH, process security and flexibility for the series production of custom components has top priority. In order to continue to meet high customer standards as a systems supplier for new and complex production parts, a production strategy for tailored complete solutions is required.

💡 Solution

To machine multiple component families using aluminium cast parts, the machining strategy is optimally adjusted to BAM GmbH's modern machine fleet with standard and custom tools. Fewer tool changes and shorter machining times ensure efficient series production.

✔️​ Success

The holistic process analysis makes a significant contribution to time- and cost-optimised project success:
The series production cycle time is reduced by more than 50% to less than five minutes per component.

 "From idea to project implementation, the cooperation was a great success that speaks for itself; there are now more projects in the planning and implementation stages!"

Head of Production BAM GmbH, Josef Wittmann

Workpiece: Titanium-molybdenum inserts
Material: Titanium-molybdenum alloy
Project objective: efficient and process-secure machining

❗​ Challenge

Various components made from titanium molybdenum alloys are to be machined using a uniform tool concept in a manner that is economical and process-secure.

💡 Solution

A uniform tool concept, which consists mainly of standard products, will be defined for machining the various components made from titanium molybdenum alloys. At the same time, both the machining strategy and the cutting data recommendations will be adapted to the respective components.

✔️ Success

The customer can produce the components with the required dimensional and form tolerances in a manner that is efficient, process-secure and economical. The result: cost savings of 79%, reduction in machining time per component of 59% and a clear increase in tool life.

 "The success of this project was all thanks to the cooperation with CERATIZIT. The professional experience of the CERATIZIT machining technicians with titanium molybdenum alloys was crucial to its success."

Kappler CNC Tool Purchasing, Jürgen Klittich

Workpiece: aerospace component in series production of approx. 1,500 parts per year
Material: martensitic stainless steel 1.4545
Project objective: Optimise cycle times and ensure process reliability in series production

❗​ Challenge

Milltech was commissioned to produce a new component for the aerospace industry from 1.4545, a martensitic stainless steel that is difficult to machine, in series of 1,500 parts per year over three years. Particularly important were short cycle and delivery times as well as maximum process reliability. In addition, only standard tools were to be used so that they could also be used for other tasks. 

💡 Solution

The Project Engineering team developed a machining strategy, including programming and tool design, using the CircularLine for trochoidal milling and the SilverLine, among others.
In addition, CERATIZIT recommended suitable tool holders and appropriate clamping technology. As Milltech had a lack in machine capacity to test the suggestions, so the machining trials were carried out at the Technical Centre in Kempten - with big success. In order to guarantee delivery reliability Milltech uses CERATZIT's consignment stock service.

✔️ Success

Thanks to their enormous cutting volume per component, the SilverLine and CircularLine tools are now an integral part of the new machining strategy, as are the WTX-VA drills and the MultiLock deburring cutters. The decisive factor was that 40% faster cycle times are now possible than with competitor tools.

 "CERATIZIT's Project Engineering is a very good offer for companies like us. We have one supplier for all the tools we need and on top of that we do not lose any time for planning."
