Successful cooperation between CERATIZIT and Multivac
At the Lechaschau plant in the Austrian region of Tyrol, all necessary drilling operations are now being conducted with insert drills of the MaxiDrill 900 class (link to: http://www.ceratizit.com/products/metal-cutting/list/detail/?product=65&cHash=47df023a00e32647a01317b63301d8c5) from Cutting Solutions by CERATIZIT. Multivac opted for a speedy two-phase complete changeover of production operations in Lechaschau, in order to achieve maximum cost reductions as soon as possible.
The MaxiDrill 900 has proved successful in every respect. Here are the advantages, summarized by Erich Wechselberger who is responsible for tool management at Multivac in Lechaschau: “Thanks to the higher cutting data we are now around 50 per cent faster than with the MaxiDrill Classic. Tool breakage occurs only on very rare occasions. We use the same insert for both the central and peripheral cutting edge. This makes the drilling system easy to use and guarantees low warehousing costs. Other positive aspects are the start of the drilling action, and the fact that the drill can be used in both stationary and rotating applications, with optimal performance in either case.
Stefan Bailom, Sales Manager Austria and Switzerland at Cutting Solutions by CERATIZIT (link to: http://www.ceratizit.com/products/metal-cutting/), who accompanied the project at Multivac right from the beginning, adds: “Whatever we tried, the result was always an increase in performance, even with aluminium.” CERATIZIT Product Manager Patrick Praznik is equally delighted. “With MaxiDrill Classic we used a special aluminium geometry. Now we machine all materials at Multivac using the MaxiDrill 900, with the identical geometry of the SONT insert and the CTPP430 grade which is suitable for a wide variety of applications. This works perfectly.”
