Successful technology conference in Aachen: Commercial success with fineblanking


In order to achieve optimum results in fineblanking and thus also commercial success, the interplay between various components is crucial.

Speakers Franz Jurt and Patrick von Müllenen, both Key Account Managers at Feintool Technologie AG, offered an insight into the further development of presses, tools and peripheral devices, as well as the optimization of the overall fineblanking process. Participants heard how a fineblanking press can only operate at its full potential when the framework conditions are met and all components are perfectly harmonized. Feintool clarified impressively how new benchmarks can be set and how new possibilities are emerging for lasting commercial success.

The technology conference in Aachen also offered an overview of developments and intelligent innovations for fineblanking technology. These trends include, for example, the Internet of Production, which was presented by Dr. Andreas Feuerhack, head of industrial research and the working group for grinding, forming and technology planning at RWTH Aachen University, and which is also being studied within the fineblanking working group.

Following the specialist presentation, participants were invited to take a tour of the WZL at RWTH Aachen, which gave them a greater insight. A fineblanking system in the machine laboratory was the highlight of this visit.

Franz Jurt reflected on a successful event: “All participants enjoyed themselves and are looking forward to the next gathering and to Feintool’s appearance at Euroblech in October2018.”
