MOULd and tool manufacturing

The company Gira belongs to the premium manufacturers of the electrotechnical industry. Located in Radevormwald they produce switches and sockets, but also system components for the intelligent building technology. In their in-house tool construction "mold-centers" by OPS-Ingersoll are used for manufacturing of electrodes and hard treatment of the form applications. The “mold centers” are equipped with HIRSCHMANN Reference System 5000 for production of electrodes and with Reference System 8000 for palletizing of workpieces. After determination of the offset parameters of workpieces and electrodes on the measuring device which is equipped also with such systems, the data are collected by chip identification and transferred online to the machine. The combination of the sinking EDM with the HSC machining centre through a handling unit and the permanent use of HIRSCHMANN Reference Systems have more than doubled the productivity of Gira at one stroke. Also for wire cutting EDM Gira trusts in HIRSCHMANN Reference Systems.
