MACHINE AND PLANT ENGINEERING

INDUSTRY SOLUTION MACHINE AND PLANT ENGINEERING

The segment focuses on the production of individual goods, small series or systems comprised of several machines in the plant construction field. It is strongly influenced by the medium-sized business segment and has a high degree of vertical integration. The sector relies on a wide range of materials made of e.g. steel, Al, Ni, and Ti-alloys, other non-ferrous metals and plastics and lots more.

Challenges of this economic sector are:

  • Some specific customer requirements / special machine construction
  • The need for flexible modularisation based on a modular principle
  • Flexibility in production control
  • The necessity for efficiency in production
  • Compliance with regulatory requirements

Flexible application areas

WIKUS tools not only allow flexibility with respect to the application range, and therefore high blade-lives also in mixed mode, but also highly precise cutting results to reduce rework.

Machine & plant engineering

Machine & plant engineering

Machine & plant engineering

Machine & plant engineering is the largest sector within the metal and electrical industry. It comprises engines and drive technology, agriculture, textile, construction and construction machine engineering.

Innovation and cost pressures are high in this segment, so that the flexible use of material and avoidance of imprecision/differences are important factors. At the same time, short throughput times and resource-saving production are key elements.

Thanks to highly precise production on state-of-the-art production plant, WIKUS supplies tools for highly complex sawing tasks and to achieve cost and productivity benefits.

Tool & mould making

Tools for processing, assembly and control of workpieces are produced in the tool and moulding-making sector for industrial production and craftsmanship. It is usually CNC-controlled machines that supply highly precise products.

Tool-making sector is divided into the following special fields:

  • Forming dies, cold: Punching dies, drawing tool, pressure tools and blowing tools
  • Forming dies, warm: Plastic injection moulding and pressure tools, foundry tools
  • Fixture construction (construction of special, production-specific fixtures, units and apparatus)
  • Gauge construction

Buyers are metal-working, plastic processing or foundry companies and end consumers in various industrial sectors.

Great importance is attached to excellent tool quality in the reworking phase to keep the costs as low as possible and ensure a productivity advantage over the competition.

High service quality, small dimensions and the performance capability of the WIKUS band saw blades open up possibilities to the industry, e.g. high cutting performance, little reworking and a significant increase in productivity.
