Andreas Böttcher (left), Senior Manager Production & Special Tools at Oerlikon Barmag, and specialist Bahtiyar Ayar, are equally impressed by CELOS®.
Oerlikon Textile GmbH & Co. KG in Remscheid
with their brand Oerlikon Barmag are part of
the Swiss OC Oerlikon Group. The group of companies
is, among others, world market leader
in the sector of filament spinning systems for
industrial threads, fibres and non-woven fabrics.
The core competencies of the Remscheid company
include the manufacture of safety-related
components. The high speed winders for winding
fibres at speeds of up to 8,000 m/min are an
outstanding example. In total, high-tech manufacturing
in Remscheid comprises about 120
machine tools. Among these are some mill-turn
and turn-mill machines from DMG MORI.
The latest investment, a CTX beta 800 TC with
CELOS®, is of special significance.
Within the framework of a future-oriented pilot project, the turn-mill machine is connected to the ERP system in such a way that orders, NC program and pricing data can be transferred via special middleware from the control interface to CELOS®, managed and reported back to the ERP after machining. This pilot project forms part of a holistic group initiative, as explained by Andreas Böttcher, Senior Manager Production & Special Tools. The consistency and transparency of data flow across the entire value-added chain are pivotal, in order to be able to optimise machining cycles and manufacturing processes holistically and sustainably. The third important aspect mentioned by Böttcher is the seamless traceability of components right up to the process documentation. He points to the marking station next to the CTX beta 800 TC, which provides every single part with an OCR code for unique identification.
