“Four Koyama robotic grinding centers optimize planning efficiency and reliability…”

When four Koyama robots were purchased at the grinding centre in 2020, the efficiency and reliability of planning was greatly improved and enhanced, said CEO Mr. Sefah R. Altun.

"Never again Bench grinder!" "Is the joy of all our employees who have worked regularly at this workplace so far. And for everyone, because the conversion of the hand grinding workstations to automated grinding has given the casting cleaning team a lot of momentum since January 2020. Everyone is enthusiastically jumping into the courses. internal training, because the new grinding centers take over all arduous grinding work after the current conversion phase and thus also their exposure to noise, dust and the risk of injury. In the future, tireless machines will form the technical basis for reliable and consistent grinding quality for all castings processed, fewer rejects and more efficiency in the entire outsourcing workflow.

In the same year, they ordered ordered: 2 x 400S, 1 x 500TT, 500TTXL

New five-year plan already in place – Focus on sustainability and fettling of Cast aluminium parts

Managing Director Sefah Altun already has the next five-year plan in the pipeline. An important focus here is sustainability. Planned for this is certification according to DIN EN ISO 14001 (environmental management and resource efficiency). Parallel to this a solar system covering more than 5000 m² is to be installed on the company's own roofs,

In view of rapidly rising energy costs, this will not only benefit the environment. With the construction of an additional 2000 m² production area for fettling and machining of cast aluminium parts, the range of services offered is to be further expanded by 2025.
