MOULd and tool manufacturing

Gira, a top manufacturer in the electrotechnical industry located in Radevormwald, Germany, produces switches and sockets, as well as system components for intelligent building technology. Their in-house tool construction "mold-centers" by OPS-Ingersoll are used for manufacturing electrodes and hard milling. These “mold centers” are equipped with HIRSCHMANN Reference System 5000 to produce electrodes and with Reference System 8000 for the palletizing of workpieces. After determining the offset parameters for workpieces and electrodes on the measuring device, the data is collected by chip identification and transferred online to the machine. The combination of the sinking EDM with the HSC machining center handling unit and the permanent use of HIRSCHMANN Reference Systems, have more than doubled the Gira’s productivity. Gira also trusts in HIRSCHMANN Reference Systems for EDM wire cutting applications.
