BMW Group Swindon Pressings updates tool presetting
To improve their tool setting capability BMW Swindon Pressings have added a further Kelch presetter. Measuring tool geometry is important to support their new JOBS Ever 7, 5 axis gantry machining centre. The latest Kenova Set line V956 offers CNC axis movement for fully automatic tool measuring. Equipped with the latest Fire Wire CCD camera technology and the Kelch EASY Webset measuring software. Due to the complex tools the TeachIn programming module for fast development of bespoke measuring programs was included. This machine is constructed in a thermally stable and vibration-damped mineral cast composite to maintain accuracy and repeatability in the machine shop environment. This was important as the presetting area is close to the machine.
In addition BMW Swindon Pressings also purchased a fully automatic thermal induction shrink machine to automate the shrink tool changes. See our range of automatic shrink machines in our shrink section
