Time seems to run faster in China as the country is changing at a rapid pace. Through its program, China 2025, the country is now driving the change to become a place where high-quality goods are produced and services provided. Industry 4.0 is playing an important role in all of this. The requirements for precision in machining and for cost-effective machining are rising. Components manufactured in China must meet the same quality features as for parts produced in Europe, America or Japan. SW is participating directly. Thus in 2015 we began equipping the factory of a long-standing
customer in China for the production of transmission and clutch housings. The project included 36 two-spindle and 12 one-spindle machining centers as well as a complete automation system for all process steps downstream from machining. In this project we connected six machining centers together with eight manufacturing cells in two identical lines. That ensures maximum flexibility. Loading is performed by the robot from directly above into the clamping
fixtures. This special solution makes not only the working areas in the machines, but also the area all around the SW machines, freely accessible for operators and maintenance engineers without any disruptive protective fences.
German Engineering – applied in China
We have been delivering SW machines to China for over 10 years. The number has been growing considerably and continuously for several years now. This country remains one of the two largest automobile markets in the world. Hence we want to be the long-term system partner for the automotive industry and its suppliers. To be able to meet the requirements of our international customers, but especially of our Chinese customers and customers from the entire
Asia-Pacific region faster and more flexibly, we have set up a plant for the first time outside Germany.
SW in Suzhou, in Jiangsu province, only about an hour from Shanghai by car, began operation in mid-2016 on an overall floor space of 18,000 square meters. Here we adapt basic machines delivered from Germany to customer specifications. Chinese and German specialists link the SW machining centers with the latest automation solutions for complete production lines. German Engineering – applied in China. On site for the entire lifecycle We have the same standards for our employees in China as in any other market: we develop and configure the best solutions for our
customers and take responsibility for them. You give us your requirements profile and the name of the component; we do the rest for you. We bring together the production solution from our machining centers and modularly structured automation, applying our entire machining know-how. As we ourselves buy locally in China, we are able to respond to your requirements quickly and flexibly. And with our ”life“ services we are connected with you and your machines
for the entire lifecycle. Practically always „on site“. We support our customers in Asia from Suzhou with engineering, training and general services and ensure short delivery times for replacement parts.
