March 2016 - Consistent Networking Must Reach the Shop Floor

Many terms but just one trend: Industry 4.0. smart factory, or the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The future of machining will be a more networked one due to increased challenges in the machining sector, not just in terms of high volumes, but because even a batch size of one has to be produced to a high standard of quality, and procedures must be documented. For processes to be safe, it has to be possible to call up ever greater volumes of tool data from any location for machine and software systems to work together effectively - and all of this under conditions of rising pressure on time, cost, and quality.

March 24, 2015 - Tool Presetters Increase Productivity

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.
