Thats what our customers say

»With centroteX we have extremely short set-up times. It is trouble-free and with low maintenance. centroteX has significantly advanced our process project.«


Uwe Thielert, manufacturing director - Fertigungstechnik Nord

__________________________________________________________________________________________

»Our centroteX performance is consistently positive: 10 % more productivity, no bothersome alignment of the clamping device, and thanks to the interfaces we have even saved ourselves the expense of acquiring a new machine. This concept pays off in every aspect.«


Ernst Backhaus, manufacturing director - BRECO GmbH & Co. KG

Ernst Backhaus, is excited about centroteX. The interfaces are used on a Gildemeister GMX 250 turning and milling machine on the main spindle and on the sub-spindle. Clamping device change-over time has now been reduced from 1–2 hours to 10 minutes, with a workpiece concentricity < 0.01 mm.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

»Workpiece quality, concentricity, changeover accuracy – we are totally happy with centroteX. The throughput times and piece rates have significantly improved, in spite of low piece rates we are able to quickly react to customer desires, consequently we can also deliver faster. A real competitive advantage. We also earn more money with centroteX.«


Andreas Hochmuth, CEO - AHZ Zerspanungstechnik GmbH

Andreas Hochmuth was one of the first to rely on centroteX. The product has been used at AHZ for four years. The clamping device is changed once per shift. What previously took a good hour, is now done with centroteX in just 10 minutes! Location of the interface: A Gildemeister CTX 410 turning and milling machine.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

»The centroteX interfaces are extremely flexible, can be quickly implemented, and the unbelievable repeatability is always exciting to me.«


Simon Meyer, machining technologist in the technology center - Walter AG

Simon Meyer changes over for customer-specific applications two times per week. He uses the interfaces on the main and sub-spindle. What is particularly important for him is the flexibility to quickly change over from a jaw chuck to a SPANNTOP chuck or to a mandrel.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

»Our customers are expecting a high degree of flexibility from us. We can offer this only if we can also set up quickly. centroteX is the perfect product in this regard. It has been part of our standard equipment since 2006 – also for each new machine.«

Erwin Marocke, equipment design engineer - ZF Passau GmbH

Erwin Marocke uses centroteX on the main spindle of vertical double-spindle lathes with integrated Vz hobbing unit. Set-up is performed twice a week on average. Thanks to centroteX the change-over from I.D. to O.D. clamping takes approximately 10 minutes. Without the centroteX interface it used take at least 40 minutes.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

»Delivering just-in-time – with centroteX this has taken on a completely new dimension. It is the interface that makes this possible. Parts that are missing in assembly are available before noon, thanks to centroteX. So much speed is simply phenomenal.«

 

Andreas Schmücker, director of production - Ross Europa GmbH

Andreas Schmücker: Since centroteX, clamping device change-over is no longer a problem. We change three times a week and the time advantage certainly is clearly noticeable. Clamping device change-overs take between 15 and 20 minutes on the Okuma Mac Turn 350. On this machine centroteX is implemented on the main and sub-spindle.

__________________________________________________________________________________________

»With centroteX our manufacturing is significantly more flexible. Parts machined from the bar, large diameters – all of these are no longer a problem. It is really a creative development.«

 

Jürgen Hesse, master production - Dako Werk Dowidat KG

The Mori Seiki NL 2500 is Jürgen Hesse’s particular favorite. On its main spindle there is the centroteX interface and this has now become indispensable to him. Job-oriented manufacturing, immense time advantages and fast amortization – the interface paid for itself a long time ago. It was certainly not the last one that Jürgen Hesse has ordered.
