Lukas Czaja | 17. April 2020

The automotive industry is the largest customer for machine tools. Due to the change from the combustion engine to the electric motor, the automotive sector is facing serious changes that are causing noticeable uncertainty among suppliers. The fear of losing jobs also plays a major role in this. What effects does electric mobility have on […]


Plastic energy chains ward off 850°C hot swarf in machine tools

Lukas Czaja | 14. April 2020

Machine tools have become an integral part of the industry. Thanks to them, metallic workpieces are produced with the highest precision, which are used, for example, in the automotive industry or in the aerospace industry. In all machine tools the desired contour is achieved by the interaction of tool and workpiece. Depending on the technology, […]


Energy chains are a source of vibrations in machine tools

Lukas Czaja | 3. April 2020

It is every machine operator’s nightmare. The machine tool suddenly becomes jerky. The user’s pulse starts to race. Sweat breaks out on their forehead. They are worried about the workpiece clamped into the machine. Each vibration damages the cross section. The workpiece will soon be beyond help. This is doubly irritating. It costs time and […]


Intelligent machine tools and linear robots prevent expensive downtime

Lukas Czaja | 1. April 2020

Reliability is top priority in the automotive industry. This is especially true of engine production, which is highly automated. The production system is like a complex gearbox. With countless intermeshed gears. Tool machines are connected via linear robots to create linked production lines. Technologies such as milling, turning, and drilling give the engine block its […]


The revolution in energy chains for machine tools reduces assembly time by 40%

Lukas Czaja | 25. March 2020

The great demand means that machine tools are often mass-produced. It is especially important that each machine – whether it is a milling, turning, grinding or drilling machine – is identical with respect to quality and precision.
