Fully Automated Robotic Cell for Integrated Quality Measurement
Isolit-Bravo was founded in 1921 at Jablonné nad Orlicí near the Polish border as the first Bakelite mill in Bohemia. After the 1960s, the rising popularity of plastic forced the company to transform itself, changing its production, buying new machines, and beginning to mould plastic parts.
Measuring workpieces on the machine has become standard practice at the Saxon milling service provider Hofmann & Engel. The possibility to log work directly on the machine has helped win several orders from mould making and single component manufacturers.
In Hyderabad, India, EQIC is synonymous with the high-quality manufacturing of jigs, fixtures, gauges and press tools. The business owes part of its success to its early adoption of high-quality measurement technology, and is confident that an ongoing relationship with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence will be a key part of its future growth and success.
Tianjin Motor Dies Co. Ltd., founded in 1995, celebrated its twentieth anniversary in April 2015. Currently, Tianjin Motor Dies has more than ten plants in China and has even set up manufacturing facilities in Germany. The company, one of China's largest motor die manufacturers, has now begun to impact the global dies market in earnest.
Anything But A Bottleneck Coordinate Metrology in Toolmaking
The Corvaglia Group based in Eschlikon in eastern Switzerland is a top performer in every sense. The company is a specialist manufacturer of inexpensive caps and closures for PET bottles. Along with plastic injection moulding, toolmaking has a major role to play at Corvaglia.
Ballerstedt, the renowned plastic-injection moulding company, uses probes and Form Inspect software from m&h when constructing their moulds. Mould inserts can now be made to fit accurately and to be easily replaceable. This shortens downtimes and increases productivity.
Innovation and customer benfit, these are the maxims that have established mould maker Hofmann of Lichtenfels enviable reputation. At Hofmann, measuring workpieces while still clamped on the machine has been an everyday occurrence for over seven years. Using touch probes and software from m&h, Hofmann has improved quality and reliability of the production process while speeding up the manufacturing cycle at the same time.
Measuring contours on the machine tool not only ensures quality but also considerably shortens set-up times and speeds up manufacturing cycles. A mould making and jobbing company reports its experiences using m&h 3D Form Inspect software and proves that quality assurance also reduces manufacturing time.
The mould production of Color Metal produces mould inserts in an automated facility with a large pallet storage on five-axis machining centres by Grob. For this purpose, the tools are calibrated by an m&h laser and checked for tool breakage.
At Jochum, a mould manufacturer, tool length measurements and blade fracture checks are performed on a removable Tool Setter by m&h, even in unmanned shifts. The Tool Setter communicates with the control via the same infrared receiver as the probe.
The contract manufacturer SHW Bearbeitungstechnik GmbH has equipped its machining and turning/milling machines with radio-wave touch probes by m&h and regularly calibrates the machine tables with it. That provides accuracy, and the probes save set-up times and allow for an accelerated and secure production of mostly large and complex cast parts.
An Italian manufacturer of injection moulds provides for clear vision in production through measuring workpieces while still clamped on the machining centres. This is achieved by using German m&h touch probes and software on Japanese machine tools.
More Speed and More Accuracy With Laser Tool Setters
For years, model and mould construction has been measuring using probes and software by m&h. Now tools are also measured in the machine using m&h laser tool setters – with significant improvements in manufacturing.
An ideal partnership exists when all involved parties benefit from each other. This has been achieved in the partnership between Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, a leading provider of technical measurement and production solutions, and Zimmer & Kreim GmbH & Co KG.
Integrated Measurement Technology For Maximum Quality
A power plant somewhere in Europe, in operation for many years or even decades. A component, such as a burner bend, is damaged and needs to be replaced as soon as possible. A spare part is needed immediately, since downtime causes high costs. Schmehmann Rohrverformungstechnik GmbH has the solution.
Expanding the business is Metrolab’s every day focus. Its Managing Director Yogesh V. Amte worked in international automobile product and process design over the last past 12 years and tells us, “When creating Metrolab, we were looking for a strong, quality partner focused on innovation and with great local support to help us fulfil our vision”.
