Como quintuples output with Tschudin Cube

Thanks to the efficiency of the Tschudin Cube 350 centreless grinding machine, Como Industries has quintupled the output of pin gauges with very small diameters.

“It changes our way of working completely,” states Sophie Demesse, CEO of Como Industries.

Headquartered in Courbevoie near Paris, the company produces pin gauges, hydraulic nuts and other high-accuracy parts for well-known customers such as Airbus, Michelin, Thales Group and Safran.

“On the old machine, we needed five hours to manufacture 100 pin gauges of very small diameter to a tolerance of 1.5 µm,” explains Demesse. “With the Cube 350 we need only one hour – a huge productivity leap.”

The new grinding machine convinces not only with speed, but also with its optimised quality.

“Before, we were not able to reach the same kind of precision when it comes to diameters between 10 and 20 mm,” she says. “Thanks to the Cube 350, we no longer need an extra finishing step, which boosts our efficiency. For us, it’s important to stay one step ahead of our competition in Europe, but also in Asia. The co-operation with Tschudin allows us to do so.”

The grinding experts of Tschudin AG and the team of Como Industries will take part in the AMB exhibition in Stuttgart on 13-17 September. Visitors can inquire about the successful co-operation, exchange views with Demesse, Tschudin shareholder Urs Tschudin and CEO Iwan von Rotz, and of course witness the compact, award-winning, three-axis CNC centerless grinding machine on stand 5 in hall 5C11. In addition, Tschudin will exhibit another Cube 350 with robot and a 400 ecoLine centreless grinding machine.
