Because of the ease of operation of a Bihler 4 Slide-NC machine, a newly-hired machine operator can be trained to use it in less than a day. “Both set-up and change-overs can be completed in a fraction of the time compared to older four slide machines,” commented Max Linder, Director of Sales and Marketing for Bihler of America. “Plus, you simply don’t have to manage and look after these machines like you had to do with the older four slide models,” Linder pointed out. The new, easier-to-operate Bihler 4 Slide-NC machine frees up senior personnel to give their time and attention to production tasks that require more experience.
“The number one benefit with the Bihler 4 Slide-NC machine that all customers have been talking about is the reduction in set up time,” said Linder. Other advantages that Bihler 4 Slide-NC customers have commented about include:
Highly efficient production of strip and wire parts, even in small batch sizes
Rapid response capability for short-term customer requests
Lot sizes processed in half the time
Reduced tool costs and debugging time
Full-tool compatibility with select mechanical 4 Slide machines
Storage for multiple tool setups and configurations
Integrated process and production monitoring
Bihler 4 Slide-NC will be exhibiting at Booth 504 at Casmi-SpringWorld, in the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. Complete technical information about the machine will be available. Bihler representatives will also be present to answer questions and explain the many benefits and advantages that this exclusive servo-technology has to offer.
