Realistic testing series with the BRANKAMP CMS system

Machine protection tested under pressure

How exactly does ProcessMonitoring operate? A delegation of the R+V Versicherung, one of the largest German insurance groups, followed up on this question. The technical insurance experts were provided both an explanation and, in practical tests, a demonstration of the concept at the SHW Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH in Aalen. SHW equips almost all of their machines ex-works with systems from BRANKAMP, the world market leader. More ...

 

Remaining competitive in tough economic times with ProcessMonitoring systems

The Kinkele formula for the crisis: „Invest intelligently"

The deepest cuts since the great depression. Or the worst crisis since World War II. This is how experts have described the economic trend to the middle of 2009. And it seems like the same solutions are being tried all over: get rid of temporary workers, reduce costs and „Cash is King“. But is that really everything? What are the alternatives? When and how is counter-cyclical action rewarding? In search of new victory strategies: a case study from Lower Franconia. More ...

 

Karl Alber Werkzeug- und Maschinenbau

Technological advantage: High-end manufacturing

The Karl Alber Werkzeug- und Maschinenbau company has been relying on the highest levels of quality for single part and prototype manufacturing for over 40 years. „Tool manufacturing plays a central role“, says Managing Director, Björn Alber. Without it, many of the innovations would not make it beyond the planning stage, but it seems that product development always takes precedence over tool making. If the machines are at a standstill, the entire production process begins to falter. „Therefore, it's much more important to protect tool making against damage“, Alber knows. More ...

 

Start-up companies show how it's done

Erkrath-based grinding-machine manufacturer, GSQ: Fast, innovative and successful

The 50-man team from GSQ in Erkrath developed, built and installed a new 44 kW strong, vertical blade grinding-machine at the customer's location in just four months. And this with a technology that is unmatched in the marketplace: „Until now, this type of machine was only available in a horizontal configuration. The vertical series has definite advantages, however: Amongst other advantages, it takes up less space and has a self-cleaning effect“, says Wilfried Clotten, member of the GSQ  management board.

ProcessMonitoring in mechanical processing

Forging the future in "Location G (Germany)“

Petroleum production is a hard business. Companies must extract this black gold from even greater depths. The trickiest job associated with deep sea drilling is working with high pressure under water, where the material must withstand drilling and extraction forces at all times. Experts on the almost 3,000 drilling platforms around the world rely only on the highest quality - for example, on the hammer mill “Hans van Triel”. More ...

 

Successfully prevent machine and part damage

ProcessMonitoring protects robotic and handling units

The main characteristic of Robotic and handling units is that they operate, for the most part, without human intervention. Nevertheless, fully automatic machine tools, assembly plants and measuring equipment are not immune to a crash. Production downtimes and costly repairs are the consequence. The BRANKAMP CMS 100 M can prevent damage to machines and parts. More ...

 

Measuring systems increase manufacturing speeds:

More HP for your machine tools

In the best industrial enterprises today, the machine operators work almost like race engineers. They listen into their machines with electronic measuring systems and have an exact picture of each stroke and each rotation. The high-tech manufacturing process solution has reached Formula 1 standards: Machines run up to 30 percent faster while the machine operators are more confident with setup and operate with fewer stops. More ...
