Biocybernetics is the science that deals with steering and control processes in organisms and ecosystems.
In line with this, our process organisation is not linear in nature but follows a systemic concept. There are universal
thought and data flows from development and design to tool-making, series production, integrated measuring
technology, automated assembly and perfect logistics.
Our strictly secret competence:
Universal data flows from the idea via the 3D volume into the CAD/CAM stage and to the partly automated tool production and robot-integrated series production provide an uninterrupted order processing sequence, shorten process times, and guarantee the highest degree of reliability.
Close cooperation with customers:
The application of specific tools takes the development and design process closer to customers and makes it faster, safer and more economical. Multi-integral processes, injection moulding and filling process simulation, FEM calculations, FMEA (failure modes and effects analysis: systematic, process-oriented and preventive quality assurance) and continuous dataflows (CAD/CAM) with Siemens NX 7.5 and Mastercam.
Tool-making integrated in processes.
The development of Wild & Küpfer’s tool-making is ahead of its time and invariably state of the art. The operating of machining centres such as the HSC milling centres, WEDM and EDM centres is process-controlled by means of universal data management.
Special technology means:
LaserCusing is based on the fusion of one-component metallic powder materials by means of laser. This process makes it possible for tool parts to be generated layer by layer from virtually all metallic materials. The metal powder is completely melted on layer upon layer, which means that internal stress and distortion problems are mastered, and a component density of nearly 100% is achieved. Typical layer thicknesses range from 20-50μm. The sophisticated and patented exposure strategy also makes it possible for larger tool cores to be generated without deformation. One advantage of this laser application is the fact that particularly in the case of highly complicated 3D moulds, cooling channels can be arranged in a concerted manner, which results in optimally cooled tool components and thus in lower-distortion parts with substantially shorter cycle times.
Production runs 24 hours, seven days a week.
Economically successful series production is only possible if work is not interrupted and quality is guaranteed. At Wild & Küpfer, this task is performed by an impressive number of state-of-the-art injection moulding machines and robots. Specially trained professionals control and monitor the machinery with the application of one- or multi-component technology, IMD an IML technology and insert technology.
Assembly as fully automated system manufacture.
Dexterous operators put together assemblies, finish articles by means of laser marking, dabber printing, hot-stamping and ultrasonic welding. Wherever it makes exonimic, ecological and technolgical sense, robots assume this task. For this purpose, we use state-of-the-art robot systems around the clock.
Quality assurance: system-integrated measuring technology.
Thanks to systematic, process-oriented and preventive quality assurance, tool-making and series production are subject to stringent quality control according to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485:2003 and ISO 14001:2004. Continual checks of actual and nominal values allow for automated, universal processes for the further processing of workpieces and for final inspection.
To ensure that data which previously could not be measured and viewed can be visualised, we use our latest innovation, the computer tomograph for geometrical measurements and defect analysis. Additional checks are carried out by means of DSC (differential scanning calorimetry), measuring microscopes and tactile measuring machines.
We do not surrender responsibility until our parts are yours.
An ingenious logistics system with its own fleet ensures reliable just-in-time delivery. To have a guarantee that the right products will be in the right place at the right time is reassuring.
