Brake caliper machining: Bugatti and BENZ Slim-Line
The automobile manufacturer Bugatti, together with its partners BENZ, HAIMER, Bionic Production and Vogt Engineering, implemented an absolutely prestigious project: Together, the companies succeeded in producing an additively manufactured brake caliper for a Bugatti Chiron in series production. It is the largest additively printed titanium component of its kind.
More production capacities thanks to BENZ Solidfix®
For the milling of brackets for machine frames, Tox Pressotechnik relies on the BENZ Solidfix® modular quick-change system. The combination of the angular milling head and the quick-change system results in a time saving of 1.5 hours per bracket.
BENZ Solidfix® modular quick-change system in flexible tool construction of LuK
Typical requirements in any tool shop are a high degree of flexibility with fast response times in single part production. Aspects such as tool variety, set-up times and, of course, precision are especially important here. This is also true at LuK, a product brand of the Schaeffler Group.
Reduced lead times and costs – improved response time
For the 24-hour service concept of HOMAG woodworking systems, it is of great importance that spare parts for delivered machines are available promptly. The use of the LinA broaching unit has significantly reduced the response time for spare parts.
Multi-spindle drill heads for machining large-volume aluminum profiles
For machining aluminum profiles, Mack Alu-Systeme uses multi-spindle heads with minimum quantity lubrication combined with an angle head from BENZ Tooling. Over the entire process, time savings of 10% were able to be achieved compared to the previous processing method.
