Contract manufacturers in particular must be able to trust in the technologies, machines, and processes they use to produce one-off and small-batch components with extreme precision and process reliability. That’s why Ingold Tools AG, a well-known precision manufacturer, relies on CNC cylindrical grinding machines from STUDER.
Christoph Jenzer, Managing Director at Ingold Tools in Inkwil, proudly states that his production specialists have had excellent experiences with STUDER cylindrical grinding machines for many years.
“Even on an old grinding machine that has a belt drive and is close to being an antique itself, our experts were able to achieve exceptional roundness accuracy and superior surface quality on the machined workpieces. The outstanding quality of STUDER’s grinding machines impressed me for many years.”
As Christoph Jenzer puts a high premium on reliable technology, he consistently invests in tried-and-tested grinding machines.
“As in the past, the quality of a grinding machine continues to be determined by whether it has a stable and fully settled platform. That’s why, up to now, we have exclusively procured grinding machines that have already proven themselves over several years. Naturally, this is very advantageous from an economic perspective,” he explains.
After annual investments starting in 2014, the manufacturing facility in Inkwil now boasts eight STUDER CNC cylindrical grinding machines.
Comprehensive Range Clinched The Deal
Christoph Jenzer’s preference for cylindrical grinding machines from Thun-based STUDER is also rooted in the large variety offered by this manufacturer.
“At STUDER, we always find the machine needed for our comprehensive range of components,” he says.
For example, the contract manufacturer now machine workpieces ranging from around 10 mm to 450 mm (0.4 to 17.7 inch) in diameter and 1,600 mm (63 inches) in length on STUDER machines like the S21, S31, S33, S40, and S41. The contract manufacturer first had all the machines overhauled by the overhauling department of STUDER.
On some of them, additional machining capabilities were added. This was the case, for example, with an S21 cylindrical grinding machine on which internal and thread grinding as well as in-process gauging for adaptive grinding have been added.
As Christoph Jenzer emphasises, the manufacturer always provided comprehensive support for the overhauls, with qualified service and readily available spare parts.
