When the Schlote Group built a new factory in Harzgerode in 2017, it was designed to mass produce only a single part. MAPAL supplied all the cutting tools. By optimising the tools, the foundation has now been laid for a future with new products.
When the automotive supplier Schabmüller received a huge order in 2013 with almost one million parts to be manufactured per year, tool management became necessary for the variety of tools used. The manufacturer placed its trust in MAPAL and has since implemented a whole series of projects together with the tool manufacturer.
KTC has been partnering with DMG MORI since 2001. Six 5-axis simultaneous machining centers have already been installed, including three DMC models with automated pallet systems and a DMC 210 FD providing both milling and turning capabilities.
