Quality Assurance Measures And A New Box Design

All new in May:
New box tools, 27 ring holder round instead of prismatic

It is important for us that you can rely on the consistent high quality of our products. That’s why we are exchanging all insets in the box tools for widths 21 and 27 right now. Additionally, insets with high wear will be produced as spare parts, to ensure fast exchangeability, if needed.

On this occasion, we follow a wish expressed by many customers regarding a standardized design: As from the beginning of May 2013 we will change the design of our mechanism ring holders with 27 casing from prismatic to round. Thus, these mechanisms are adapted to the design of the mechanisms with base width 21 and 38.

The adaptation affects the following dimensions:

  • OCD 132/02/30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 52
  • OCD 290/04/30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 52
  • STB 132/02/30, 35, 40, 45, 52, 65
  • STB 290/04/30, 35, 40, 45, 52, 65
  • STR 132/02/29, 35, 38, 45, 50
  • STR 290/04/29, 35, 38, 45, 50

3-ring-mechanisms, as well as a lot of individual productions using this filling height, will be produced with prismatic ring holders for the time being.

Quality management:
Control station at 4-ring-machine

Recently, our allrounder, the 4-ring-machine, has been equipped with an automated control station for checking the correct assembly. By the means of electronic sensors, it checks the height values at several different places. Defective parts are automatically ejected. The risk of incorrectly assembled ring holders, resulting from a difference in height, is eliminated.
