The continuous standardization of our functional assemblies leads to an increasing number of more complex manufacturing parts. Our format part “J+P Simple-quick-change” has been installed about 1,000 times in the last 12 months. Up to now, we have bought in the associated components. Due to rising costs, we made the decision to invest in a machining center.
In September 2020, we purchased a turning-milling center from DMG MORI with automatic feed of semi-finished products and part removal. The high degree of automation of this machine allows for fully automatic production of the individual parts we use in high volumes. Our goal is that this machining center will produce parts in the second and third shifts and our employees will not have to be present.
On 2nd February 2021 the acceptance of the turning-milling center took place at DMG. The commissioning is planned from 15th February 2021. The turning-milling center will be used in our Reichstädt plant.
