YKT (THAILAND) Co., Ltd. has a rich lineup of machinery products from Europe and the United States to meet the evolving needs of Thailand’s manufacturing industry. In this article, we introduce examples of the groundbreaking German cut-off machine that YKT (THAILAND) Co., Ltd. offered to PTS TOOL (THAILAND)Co.,Ltd. with video.
＜Video of the introduction case＞
The activity of the PTS TOOL(THAILAND) Co.,Ltd. is cutting tool manufacturing and re-grinding services in Thailand. In recent years, as the business of the tool production business has expanded, the load of the cutting process has become significantly larger. In the past, since it used a dry process using a general-purpose machine, it took time and had problems such as seizure, dimensional dispersion, and low work efficiency.
In March 2018, the factory manager Atsushi Matsumura visited GrindTec, an exhibition of grinding technology that will be held once every two years in Germany, and he encountered the ANTON WIMMER Company's wet type cut-off machine. As soon as he returned to Thailand, he consulted with GM Toshikazu Watanabe of YKT (THAILAND) Co., Ltd. who has a strong network in Europe. YKT already had sales of ANTON WIMMER's cut-off machine. For this reason, "The talk of business progressed smoothly and we reached the introduction of a cut-off machine to our factory through YKT (THAILAND) Co., Ltd." (Mr. Matsumura's story).。
YKT (THAILAND) Co., Ltd. offered PTS TOOL (THAILAND)Co.,Ltd. the countermeasure to the challenging factory conditions, which was the immersion type cut-off machine "UFT 370" of ANTON WIMMER, Germany.
Since ANTON WIMMER's cut-off machine works in the immersed condition, compared to the cutting surfaces using a traditional dry-type cut-off machine, the surface also has a smooth finish without a specific seizure. In the ordinary dry type machine, the grinding wheel was immediately lost and frequently replaced, but the submerged type has a longer life—eventually leading to the work time being shortened. It is a breakthrough cut-off machine that can greatly change the work efficiency in the tool manufacturing process.
