ZOLLER UK and Partners Have a Manufacturing Recipe for Success
Statistics show that the UK is currently the eighth largest manufacturing nation in the world by output.
That’s pretty impressive for a small island nation with a population of just over 65-and-a-half million (by comparison China has 1.4 billion people, India 1.3 billion and the USA around 328 million).
The industry ambition is to see the UK break into the top five, and it’s only through the foresight and innovation of businesses like ZOLLER UK that the vision will be made a reality.
Part of the Carfulan Group and based in Foston, South Derbyshire, ZOLLER UK specialises in precision tool presetting and inspection, helping to ensure tools are of the right quality to create accurate and quality parts prior to machining.
While it already supplies machines and software to some of the biggest hitters across the automotive, aerospace, petrochemical and medical sectors, it prides itself on being able to provide both time and money saving solutions for businesses of all sizes, regardless of the number of machine tools they operate.
To prove it, its engineering experts are preparing to offer live demonstrations of the very latest technology available at a special open house event on November 14 and 15.
On display will be the pomBasic, genius 3, venturion 450, pomSkpGo and smileCompact, which all come with pre-installed software that helps to provide a complete tool management solution by making stock quantities, stock location, tool life data and work schedules available across all departments of a business.
There’ll be the added bonus of a chance to see new Smart Cabinets for the first time in the UK, but the benefits don’t stop there – expect products from the following trusted ZOLLER UK partners thrown into the mix:
- Openmind – one of the world’s leading developers of computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) solutions for machine and controller-independent programming, boasting innovative features not available elsewhere. These contribute to higher performance in both programming and cutting machining. Its hyperMILL product is a modular CAM solution for 2.5D, 3D, 5-axis, high-speed and high-performance cutting, as well as mill-turning processes, while the hyperMILL MAXX Machining Performance package offers three powerful modules for highly efficient roughing, finishing and drilling. The CAM/CAD solutions of Openmind meet the highest demands of a multitude of industries, ticking time-saving, reliability, efficiency and quality boxes.
- Kyocera Unimerco –manufactures, distributes and services tools for machining, primarily for the metal, woodworking, automotive, aerospace, power generation and fluid power industries. Its cutting tools and solutions include complete tooling programmes, tool maintenance, tool management, training and education, with global technical and sales support operating in 28 countries.
- CGTech – specialises in numerical control/computer numerical control (NC/CNC) simulation, verification, optimisation, and analysis software technology for manufacturing. Since 1998 its Vericut software has become the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions or areas of inefficiency, thereby reducing scrap, saving time and producing higher-quality surface finish. It is used by companies of all sizes, universities/trade schools and government agencies in more than 55 countries.
Open to both existing and potential customers, the free ZOLLER UK open house takes place between 9.30am and 4pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, November 14 and 15, at its Advanced Innovation Centre on the Tomlinson Business Park in Woodyard Lane, Foston.
