The MySolutions software solution has already been used in KELCH systems and, together with the use of the precision tools, contributes to Industry 4.0 standards. The new cooperative partnership includes precision tools, the MySolutions software solution and joint solutions for the introduction and expansion of Industry 4.0 standards. The current Sales Manager Hubert Käch, who established and managed the sale of precision tools via KELCH Service AG for over 22 years, retired in October 2020. He continues to support MySolutions as a consultant for the sale of KELCH precision tools and the MySolutions software solution in line with Industry 4.0 standards. In addition, KELCH will continue to combine the MySolutions’ software solution with its own solutions for production, tool management and logistics according to Industry 4.0 standards to optimise the use of precision tools.
Due to its high quality and precision standards, KELCH has been an important machining precision tools partner to manufacturers in Switzerland for over two decades and supports companies in converting to Industry 4.0 standards in conjunction with the MySolutions software solution. Among other things, KELCH offers Smart Factory Services, which support companies through all phases, from situation analysis to digitalisation, in the targeted use of precision tools and the expansion of Industry 4.0 standards with the aid of the MySolutions software solution. KELCH services to implement Industry 4.0 standards range from Engineering Services and Tool Services to Financial Services. MySolutions AG was selected as the new sales partner to maintain the high level of consulting and service quality even with the expansion of Industry 4.0 standards. KELCH already had a cooperative partnership with MySolutions AG in the use of the MySolutions software solution, which helps companies to introduce industry 4.0 standards for set-up, tool cycles and data management. Over and above its MySolutions software solution per se, the new sales partner’s consulting expertise and service enjoy a very good reputation.
“Hubert Käch established an excellent market position for our precision tools in Switzerland with a large, satisfied customer base with long-standing partnerships. These companies are used to a high level of service from KELCH at all levels – from consulting and sales to engineering and maintenance. We are very pleased that MySolutions will continue the success of our precision tools and services at an Industry 4.0 standard level. We look forward to a lasting and successful collaboration with respect to the MySolutions software solution. Our sincere thanks go to Mr. Käch for his outstanding services in the Swiss market,” explains Frank Wildbrett, Managing Director of KELCH GmbH. Hubert Käch explains: “Our customers in Switzerland have always appreciated our proverbial proximity to customers and associated short response times for KELCH precision tools. Not least for this reason and owing to our excellent product quality including the MySolutions software solution, many customers returned to KELCH time and time again and so renewed and underlined the successful partnership.”
KELCH precision tools and the MySolutions software solution offer companies in Switzerland the opportunity to establish tailor-made Industry 4.0 standards. Paul Gossens, CEO of MySolutions, explains: “Swiss production focuses on precision parts for the watch and jewellery industry as well as medical technology. The associated machining techniques require high precision and, in some cases, specific production. These and many other applications and industries benefit from the valuable synergies between KELCH products and the MySolutions software solution. We use KELCH precision tools, from tool presetters to shrink fit devices, and the MySolutions software solution for optimum tool cycles, predictive set-up and reliable data management.” The synergies between the KELCH systems and the MySolutions software solution form the basis for complete solutions in line with Industry 4.0 standards. The combination of KELCH precision tools and the MySolutions software solution provides for unique developments with comprehensively coordinated hardware and software components.
Several joint trade fair appearances and roadshows are already planned for 2021 to showcase hands-on the new Industry 4.0 standard solutions directly to customers in Switzerland. This will enable companies in Switzerland to specifically learn how they can use the latest KELCH precision tools, the current version of the MySolutions software solution and production-ready complete Industry 4.0 standard solutions to future-proof their operations.
