“To increase OEE, flexible manufacturing systems for fully automated grinding of the blanks are the ideal solution.“

For the economic production of hand tools and hardware, an automated grinding process for pre- and finish machining of high-quality forging blanks is indispensable. The process-safe alignment and recognition of the workpieces is the basis for perfect functional surfaces in terms of shape, surface and symmetry. The combination of optical detection of the blank geometry with regard to tolerances and hardness distortion of each individual workpiece before grinding and a grinding process with target/actual value comparison ensures consistently high final quality despite varying incoming qualities. The rejection of faulty blanks (form error, undersize, distortion) is thus fully automatic.

  • Flexible and modular modular system offers sustainability for product changes
  • Multi-step processing for the most diverse component requirements
  • Intelligent module arrangement for shortest cycle times and stable process conditions
  • Targeted process control/optimization through optional SPC rejection
  • Optional: cleaning process and NIO rejection
  • Project-integrated solutions/interfaces for quick and easy loading and unloading
  • Digitization package with freely selectable IoT options to increase machine availability

Together with you, our team of future-oriented engineers and designers develops the cutting-edge technology that ensures long-term success in the constantly evolving manufacturing world. Through early involvement, preferably already during the product development phase, we support you with regard to surface criteria, process technology and prototyping.

Focus on Perfect Solutions

Innovative automation solutions also allow full flexibility when integrating new processes into existing production structures. From the seamless integration of individual systems to robot-guided machining processes, all variants are possible. We always have the perfect solution in mind.

Make Your Production Smart

Have you considered… Increasing added value through integrated sensors and smart data analysis? Incorporating intelligent production through networking with the strategic communication of the entire operation? Increasing profitability by optimizing ordering processes, material flows and production? Improving Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) through better planning of service and maintenance work? If so, we will be happy to support you in this with our SQS products along with the experience we have accrued over many years in a plethora of different areas.

Protect Resources

Reduced friction and low weight of the individual components are a prerequisite for low fuel and power consumption and thus important features for the powertrain, especially with alternative drives. A long service life and reduced noise emissions, on the other hand, underline our customers' quality requirements. For example, the functional surfaces of many moving parts influence energy consumption and thus the decisive mileage range. With our decades of experience, we support you in component design and product development.

Service Partnership

To make your production more efficient, we have taken our support and service to a new level. As an essential part of our digitization strategy, we are taking steps to provide you with supplementary IoT systems to increase OEE, such as online support, digital access to documentation and tutorials and real-time machine data. Our service will continue to be available to you personally, from technology consulting and test processing to conversion or general overhaul. Get to know our life-cycle partnership to make your production more efficient, more stable and safer.

Your Solution Provider

Let’s discuss your very individual machining tasks or analyze your production chain together with our experts. In both cases, you will benefit from our innovative manufacturing systems, clever automation options and comprehensive service offerings.
