A renown German gear manufacturer was looking for a solution to increase the efficiency of the deburring process of the bores of a planetary carrier. There are two version, one with 6 bores (3 x 2 bores in a row) or 8 bores (4 x 2 bores in a row).
The customer achieved a cost reduction of 40%! compared to the previous process / tool. The cycle time remained the same. The cost reduction originates from
- the lower tool investment
- the improved process capability because of less adjustment work
- less maintenance and repair costs
- the more simple tool concept in general
The decision maker was highly pleased by the savings achieved. He also confirmed that his staff appreciates the simplicity of the tool and the fact that it works without pre-adjustments.
The head of the production line with many years of experience and with a lot of knowhow said: "This is the best Christmas present of HEULE ever!".
