Identical, high level standards

With 3,400 employees, the BITZER Group of Companies is the world's largest manufacturer of refrigerant compressors. Changing over to HELLER machining centres presented a major challenge for our Maintenance department.

Task

  • high availability and quality standards without optional upgrades
  • manufacturing on demand
  • immediate, reliable service following scheduled shutdowns
  • fast and reliable service
  • previous machines replaced within a short time and without prolonged production downtime

Project scope & solution

  • two H 6000 4-axis machining centres
  • chain-type magazine for 150 tools and function enabling up to 35 kg of tool weight.

Result

  • availability of over 95%
  • technology leap with machining speeds
  • no tool change failures due to position or weight
  • good accessibility for setting the workpieces

Customer testimonial

HELLER solutions at Bitzer: Customer testimonial

Frank Brunner

Head of Manufacturing and Production Engineering at Bitzer

"For batch sizes of up to 3 components, the machining centres have to perform reliably as soon as they are switched on, even after scheduled shutdowns. But neither availability nor the required precision presented a major challenge to the H 6000."

Peter Arnold

Head of Mechanical Manufacturing at Komax

"If you have to deal with 30 pallets containing, at times, up to 50 different clamping points per clamping cube, you need the right tools in the magazine to avoid having to constantly change the tool sets. Our tool count currently stands at 409. Comparable or smaller machines simply do not achieve capacities such as these."

"HELLER has exceeded our expectations. Everything went well, the machines run extremely reliably and our throughput times have also measurably reduced."

"Our experience with HELLER, including Service, has been nothing must positive. We speak the same language, so there was simply no reason to change supplier. The entire team has now identified with the HELLER machining centres – because they deliver what HELLER promises!"

HELLER solutions at Engel Austria: Customer testimonial

Gerhard Aigner

Head of Production at Engel Austria

"We consider quality to be fundamental. The tolerances for our core components are between two and three hundredths of a millimetre. That's why we made the conscious decision to go for HELLER machines, which are renowned for their stability."

HELLER solutions at Fette Compacting: Customer testimonial

Nicholas Warnken

Project Manager at Fette Compacting

"Key contributors to these massive savings are fewer setups thanks to the 5th axis and higher achievable cutting parameters. On the other hand, however, it was the overall package, including the automation system and new tool technologies, that was able to optimise the processes in this way".
