Schütte establishes a new Tool Presetting Centre with the KELCH KENOVA set line H3

Integration into Industry 4.0 processes


The machine tool manufacturer Alfred H. Schütte GmbH & Co. KG, which has its head office in Cologne, has centralised the Tool Presetting Centre for its multi-spindle automatics product group and extended it with a KELCH KENOVA set line H3 tool presetter. The aim of the centralisation was to make processes more efficient and connect them to Industry 4.0 processes in production. KELCH had previously developed the compact H3 version of the successful KENOVA set line tool presetter working closely with Schütte. The KENOVA set line H3 is now also being used for a world first: the ECX 46 / 65, the first Schütte single spin automatic with a unique machine concept on the market.

New Tool Presetting Centre: Within the framework of a Lean Workshop, the company decided to restructure the final assembly of all multi-spindle automatics and also move its tool presetting work there. During the course of this restructuring, the Tool Presetting Centre, under engineer Dipl.-Ing. Frank Erbstößer, was allocated a central space for the presetting of cutting tools. The space has room for two tool presetters to guarantee the presetting of all turning automatics. The reorganisation also brings about several logistical benefits: it means that there are considerably shorter distances since the changeover, both for employees, as well as designers and customers who come to the plant for preliminary handover, saving valuable working time.
