The digital solutions of Kaltenbach.Solutions GmbH have been used at Maschinenbau Kaltenbach GmbH in Neuenburg for about two years in the area of metal cutting.
There, the performance is measured directly at the machine tools and relevant data is clearly displayed. By analyzing the data, a measurable optimization of 15 to 25% could be achieved. A further increase in performance for the benefit of customers is planned for the future.
Maschinenbau Kaltenbach GmbH in Neuenburg am Rhein has been manufacturing complex machines, systems and lines for business partners and customers since 1958. Exclusive partnerships, some of which have existed for decades, form the foundation on which the company stands. In addition to assembly and machining, the company’s core competencies include manual as well as robotic welding of complex and safety-relevant components in accordance with DIN EN 1090 EXC 3. Jörn Landsrath, Managing Director Production, agreed on a strategic partnership in the field of IoT/Smart Factory with Kaltenbach.Solutions two years ago.
Maschinenbau Kaltenbach is successfully using the industry-specific IoT solution in metal cutting. There, the BoosterBOX measuring device records the performance directly on the machine tools and clearly visualizes the measured data. Precise analyses are possible on this objective basis. Employees are given greater transparency with regard to work processes and can thus also be more actively involved in planned change processes than before. A measurable optimization of 15 to 25% has been achieved so far. For the benefit of customers from different industries, a further increase in performance is targeted for the future.
