Simply better organized - Jan 2013

Who is not familiar with this from his own production operation - that search for the right tools for the job! Where are the tools, and are they available as a complete set or as individual components? Because while large sums are being invested in high-tech machines and in ever greater numbers of tools, technically obsolete production operations tend to slip from the field of view – and the vast potential for improving efficiency, and through that to cut down on cost, all inherent in the modernization of procedures of this kind, all too often fails to get the recognition it merits.

Interface to greater efficiency - Oct 2014

Euromold 2014, 25. – 28. November, Frankfurt am Main
ZOLLER Hall 8, Stand G02

Current discussions about manufacturing focus on the greatest possible transparency of know-how transfer along the process chain as well on the topic of process safety. Variance in parts is yet another challenge, particularly in tool and mold forming, and even a lot size 1 needs to be manufactured economically. Tools need to be reassembled continuously, depending on the parts - interfaces for efficiency are largely given through transparent tool organization and the simulation  of the NC program with real tool data....

Tool Presetters Increase Productivity - March 2015

ZOLLER tool presetters increase productivity: this is the topic of the interview with Canadian Metalworking!

When it comes to tool room quality and management, presetting is one way to increase profit and boost productivity. Manufacturers are constantly trying to improve cycle times, lessen down time, and enhance the production process. One of the first thoughts is often the need to upgrade existing equipment. However, purchasing a presetter machine can make a difference, and is often the less expensive option to streamline the manufacturing process. Canadian Metalworking spoke with ZOLLER, a German-based manufacturer of inspection and measuring technology, to find out what presetting can do to maximize quality control.

All Set - July 2015

For companies looking to enhance their productivity it takes a strong will and a disciplined
mind to resist the temptation to simply rush out and buy the latest and greatest machine tool but there are other considerations that could be taken into account. Tool presetting is an often overlooked, cost-effective process that according to Zoller UK, part of the Carfulan Group, can increase productivity by around 20% per machine tool. Dave Tudor reports.
