Consultation

Benefit from Our Experience

During our customized consultation, we can show you how to increase the productivity of your Bihler system, how to increase the service life of your tools, and how to efficiently perform programming and welding tasks, all so that you meet your customers’ requirements more quickly and more cost-effectively.

Machine & Tool Technology

The main focus of our consultation lies in finding and implementing approaches for increasing the service life of your cutting tools, increasing the productivity of your stamping operations and improving your stamping results.

First, our in-house tool making experts analyze the design of your cutting tools. Then the actual tool components are assessed in detail. Design, process and productivity weaknesses are identified. Optimization potentials are recorded and calculated. Then a target concept is created to describe the solutions and efforts that allow the greatest potentials to be realized. In cooperation with you, we implement the optimization measures. The project is completed after it has been shown that the measurable objectives have led to the desired success.

Your benefit: Optimizing your cutting tools increases the efficiency and profitability of your systems and your equipment.

You need to implement and set up a new LEANTOOL for your machine?

This is one of the many core competencies of our experts. They were intensively involved in the development of this new tool technology from the start and have already designed and commissioned a large number of LEANTOOL setups. We provide you with this know-how during our consultation and guide or assist you during the initial setup of your LEANTOOL.

The benefit to you is that your LEANTOOL is perfectly and effectively set up and commissioned on your machine thanks to our experience and expertise. In addition, you learn from our know-how and can profit from this expertise for future tasks.

The main goal of this consultation is to optimize the tool and module setup on your system.

Our expert will work closely with you, on-site at your facilities, to analyze the current state of your production process. We will demonstrate to you the influence of various factors on your production activities, and our expert will present you with the necessary measures for optimum machine and tool settings, and will implement them directly, if possible.

Setup times are also examined carefully, because they represent downtime, and must be kept as brief as possible. Our expert will provide you with a defined procedure to minimize your tool setup and adjustment times.

The benefit to you: The optimization of your production processes will significantly increase the process efficiency and the economic efficiency of your production system, while standardized setup procedures will help to minimize errors.

You want to adapt a tool for a component previously produced on a cam-controlled machine for use on your new servo-controlled Bihler machine.

Bihler allows you to make this changeover in the shortest possible time by adapting an existing tool for use on a servo-controlled machine. This adaption is one of the many core competencies of our experts – they have successfully completed more than 150 of these changeovers. Our experts will analyze your tooling for adaptation, and will specify which tool parts would be required for an adaptation.  We will then manufacture the tool parts, and we will set them up on your servo-controlled machine, together with the existing tool. And, during the setup of the tool operation, we will also optimize the individual movements of the servo axes.

The benefit to you: Bihler will help you to adapt your existing tooling – the quickest way you can start to produce – on your modern Bihler servo-controlled machine – those parts that you were producing on your mechanical, cam-controlled machine.

Tool Design

You need to design a production concept for a Bihler system and develop tools based on this concept?

This is one of the many core competencies of our experts. Over the years, we have developed and implemented optimized production processes for hundreds of different parts. We provide you with this know-how during our consultation and develop specific solutions together with you and also assist you during their implementation.

The benefit to you is that we can find an efficient production concept and ensure optimum tool design for your application with our experience and expertise. In addition, you learn from our know-how and can profit from this expertise for future tasks.

You need to design a production concept for a Bihler system using the new LEANTOOL technology, and you need to develop LEANTOOL tools based on this concept.

This is one of the many core competencies of our experts, who were closely involved from the start in the development of this new tool technology, and have a wealth of experience in the development of manufacturing processes with LEANTOOL tools for a variety of applications. We will share our know-how with you during our consultation, and we will work with you to develop specific solutions, and will assist you during their implementation.

The benefit to you is that, with our experience and our expertise, we can help you to develop an efficient production concept, and to ensure optimal LEANTOOL for your application, and you will continue to profit from our know-how on many similar future tasks that will arise.

Control Systems

You need to create part-specific programs for your system?

This is one of the many core competencies of our experts. As a part of our consultation, we will work with you during the course of your projects to we develop specific solutions and programs for your applications, and we will help you to program your control system.

The benefit to you will be a completed set of programming tasks, perfectly suited to your applications, and implemented on time, to meet your scheduling requirements.  Plus, you will continue to profit from our know-how on many similar future tasks that will arise.

Welding

You need to create a welding application for your system.

This is one of the many core competencies of our experts – they have developed and implemented countless resistance welding processes and solutions. As a part of our consultation, we will share our know-how about the theory and practice of resistance welding, and we will work closely with you during the course of your projects to develop specific solutions that will enhance the performance of your welding application.

The benefit to you – Using our experience and know-how, we will devise and implement for you a welding system that is perfectly suited for your manufacturing needs.  Plus, you will continue to profit from our know-how on many similar future tasks that will arise.
