Customer-specific solutions with measurable results

The challenges for H.P. Kaysser, a leading international sheet metal processor/system supplier, were decreasing part volumes and increasingly exacting requirements. To solve the problems of lengthy setup times, large stock volumes and the difficulty of precise scheduling, the company opted for a LoadMaster® automation by Schuler in combination with the HELLER MCH 300 and MCH 350-C machining centres.

Task Setting

  • Expansion of the system operated in three shifts, consisting of an automation system with 20 pallet places and HELLER machining centre model MCH 300
  • Integration of the complete workpiece management in the system
  • Small to medium batch sizes and just-in-sequence production
  • Increased flexibility and productivity

Project scope and solution

  • The LoadMaster® automation by Schuler in combination with the HELLER machining centres model MCH 300 and MCH 350-C
  • The LoadMaster® system offers 45 storage places for machine pallets on 3 levels and 77 storage places for raw materials on 5 levels with euro pallets/euro pallet cages
  • The HELLER machining centres are equipped with 400 tools each

Result

  • Increase of chip-to-chip-time from 50 to 80 percent
  • Increase of machine availability from 82 to almost 90 percent
  • The company already reached a machine running time of 600 hours per month for workpieces with machining times of up to 8 to 9 hours per part
