Case study: KHS - The whole nine yards

TDM tool data management software plays a key role in integrated tool management at KHS. Introduced four years ago, the software today provides 3D tool and technology data for NC programming and production simulation as well as for presetting and stock control – KHS uses the tool management system from TDM Systems GmbH across its locations.

KHS operates worldwide as a specialist for filling and packaging systems for drinks. The Dortmund plant supplies the KHS Group globally with replacement parts and new parts. In this process, the mechanical production department in Dortmund is responsible for components and small production series with a low repetition frequency. This also includes parts for reconstructions which must usually be quickly available. Parts are manufactured on around 60 machine tools and ten machining centers. Due to the multiplicity of parts and extremely wide range of variants, retooling the machines demands an enormous amount of time. Time which one doesn’t have, because of limited machine capacities. Efficient tool organization can be beneficial in this respect, as has been shown at KHS.
