New Feintool Press for University in Aachen


This move opened another chapter in RWTH Aachen University’s close relationship with Feintool. The XFT2500speed fineblanking press was officially handed over by Franz Jurt, Key Account Manager at Feintool.

World-class research into cutting-edge fineblanking processes demands world-class fineblanking equipment with exceptional capabilities. That explains why the WZL chose Feintool’s XFT2500speed press: it satisfies all the criteria required to push the research envelope.

One field being jointly pursued by the WZL and Feintool is the “Internet of Production”. This concept revolves around making information securely available in real time at any time or place. Information becomes a digital “shadow” of production that can be used in a variety of different ways. Precise, constant data analyses uncover patterns in production and result in forecasts that guide decision-making. Companies can capture tremendous value by systematically learning from data gathered in this “Internet of Production” operation.

Partners support the project
The entire project benefits from a technology network  in which Feintool collaborates intensively and strategically with key suppliers (Arku, Böhler, C.D. Wälzholz, Platit, technotrans and Fuchs Wisura). The network provides valuable assistance in the form of materials, accessories and technical support.
