Improving on Success
It‘s hard to improve when you‘re at the top of your game, but Wagstaff Inc., (Spokane, WA.) found a way with help from TDM Systems (Schaumburg, IL). Wagstaff is a key player in the aluminum industry, a leader in the design and manufacture of the systems and equipment needed to produce primary aluminum ingot and billet using direct chill (DC) casting methods.
Tool Transparency in MAN Engine Production
MAN Diesel & Turbo France: Their products are at home in the oceans and in power plants. Diesel engines are being developed on the Atlantic coast in Saint-Nazaire, where a single connecting rod can be the length of a fully grown man's leg. Several hundred tools are necessary to produce these connecting rods. Software from TDM helps ensure transparency with this.
Everything Revolves around Tools
The three most important factors in a property are: Location, location, location. And in manufacturing? Stefan Kempf, Head of contract manufacturer Norbert Kempf GmbH, knows the answer: "The tool, the tool, the tool." These are man-aged and controlled using the TDM Tool Data Management system from Tübingen-based software specialist TDM Systems.
Indispensable in Production
Efficient production without modern tool management? By now, this is unthinkable at GROB – at the Allgäu main plant in Mindelheim, Germany as well as in Brazil, the USA and China. The machine manufacturer is planning the future of digital production. The software solutions of TDM Systems in Tübingen play a fundamental role in this.
