7 ways ZOLLER UK will help reduce your tooling costs
1.Right first time tool usage
Presetting tools with a offline tool presetter from ZOLLER will guarantee manufacturers that their cut will be right first time, minimising the risk of damage to tools and wasted materials.
2. Optimised tool life
Ensure tool measurement accuracy with an automated, ZOLLER offline tool presetter will mitigate tool damage throughout production and help extend and optimise tool life.
3. Increase tool cutting speed and productivity
Ensure the accuracy of tooling away from a CNC machine cuts out a significant amount of set up time and allows for tools to run at maximum capacity, producing more products, more accurately, in a shorter time-frame.
4. Unlock machine and tooling capacity
Investing in a ZOLLER tool presetter enables manufacturers to measure and preset tools offline whilst other tools continue to run production for other jobs simultaneously, optimising production capacity and profitability.
5. Optimised process control
ZOLLER’s Tool Management Solutions (TMS) allow full locatability and traceability of tools across the shopfloor. Operators can track where tools are and who is using them at any point. This reduces time spent looking for tools and helps to immediately locate missing ones to prevent delays across the production process.
6. Planning your tool needs
With ZOLLER’s tool management solutions, operators have total visibility as to which tools are available for which machine in advance of production. When programming data for a part, operators will be able to view parts that may not be available or need to be re-purchased.
7. Reducing tool variety
ZOLLER’s software solutions provide a single view of tool utilisation, enabling operators to identify underutilised tools and streamline workflows, boosting productivity.
