By integrating a special shop-floor measuring machine from WENZEL into the production process, PLANIMOLDE has been able to significantly increase its measuring throughput. The Portuguese manufacturer of high-quality injection molds relies on the SF 87 coordinate measuring machine and has integrated it fully automatically into the production cell.
Every day, the company produces up to seventy high-quality components for the automotive and plastics industries, for medical technology as well as electronic components, household goods and toys. "It is important to us to constantly improve the quality level of our product range and our services," explains Managing Director Telmo Ferraz.
"That's why we were looking for a new solution that could map the measuring process not only in the measuring room but also directly on the production line."
"Manufacturing high-quality injection moulds and producing high-quality plastic parts, naturally in close cooperation with our customers, is one of the principles of our philosophy," sums up Telmo Ferraz. "It goes without saying that we strictly adhere to the requirements of our customers with regard to technical specifications, and this can be documented seamlessly with our new measuring solution".
High measuring throughput and perfect accessibility The contact with WENZEL came about through 'MICROSENSE Industrial Metrology', the sales and service partner of WENZEL for the Portuguese market. In addition to the many years of trustful cooperation between PLANIMOLDE and MICROSENSE, the SF 87 coordinate measuring machine quickly scored points with its sophisticated design. The required accuracy of usually 10 μm is no problem at all, even under the temperature conditions outside the measuring room.
The strategic involvement of ISICOM - Robotea, which was responsible for integrating the automation of the entire cell with its SolidSET CELL solution, was also crucial to the success of the project. This made it possible to manage in a single system the workpiece operations for the CNC machines, milling machines, coordinate measuring machines, EDM machines, robot arms, cleaning devices, active I/O-machines). All fixtures (its50-80, UPC) are also managed by SolidSET, which relieves the manager of process details and enables early preparation of machine orders.
