Suhner increases  production  capacity with  process optimisation

REGE Motorenteile GmbH produces cylinder housings for a German car manufacturer. When housings are manufactured, the bearing points for the camshaft require some additional milling. Until recently, these machining  processes only allowed REGE operators to perform the additional milling for one bearing point for the camshaft per setting.  
 
REGE was in need of more production capacity and invited the SU-matic engineers to join them. The mission: To develop a new angle head that would eliminate the need for these repeated settings. Furthermore, that head was supposed to be exchanged automatically with the help of a tool changer.
    
The first challenge was to design the milling angle head in such a compact way that the head could immerse itself in the individual cylinder spaces. The new angle head also needed to be very robust and, at the same time, very lightweight in order to automate the exchange process, so that the machining process could be performed without human interference.
 
In close coordination with Starrag-Heckert, the supplier of the machining center, SU-matic developed a customer-specific solution. The compact, lightweight, but very stable solution allowed REGE to increase their production capacity by more than 10%. Furthermore, the company now saves approx 15% of tool costs daily in comparison to the previous solution.
