Investments into the foundry: Two new core shooters

During 2016, we exchanged one medium (15l) and one large (40l) core-shooting machine by two new machines. Together with our new core sand preparation plant and complemented by further core shooters we now run a highly efficient and modern core making workshop. We continue to do substantial and well above industry-average investments not “only” in our machining workshop but equally into our foundry, advancing with each investment process stability, performance and capacity.


October 2016
New horizontal machining center

The expansion of capacities and capabilities in our milling department is continued by our latest investment, the second addition to this workshop within only 12 months: our all new 5-axis milling center DMC 60 HL. Pallet changer, high speed spindle and linear drives make add up to a very productive machine tool. Again, we chose a machine concept different to our previously installed base. This reflects the diversity of the parts that we cast with respect to geometry and quantity also for our milling operations.
Using the same control software on all milling centers gives us the greatest flexibility possible to distribute workload based on current capacity utilization and efficiency.

Open house

In the 95th year of its existence, Dietermann + Co. celebrated a successful family day with more than 200 participants. Employees were invited to bring their families to the company to show their workplaces. At the same time, they had the chance to strengthen their understanding for their colleagues' work scope. Kids could join multiple activities and competitions, and all enjoyed the catering. Participation in different shop floor tours was strong, which demonstrated to insiders and outsiders the full value stream from sand and molten aluminum to the machining in the range of micrometers. Employees learned from exhibits, how they contribute to the global success of our customers. The day finished with a still on-going balloon competition. We would like to thank all customers for providing exhibits, and all senders for their kind return of the cards attached to the balloons!

Sponsorship of race team Stuttgart

We are happy to support the Formula Student race team of Stuttgart University with the production of wheelmounts for their race car. With this substantial sponsorship Dietermann + Co. joins other, significantly larger, technology suppliers in supporting young academics and technological advance. We wish Race Team Stuttgart safe races and strong results!


March 2016
Partnership with local high school

We have agreed on a partnership with local secondary school Gemeinschaftshauptschule Suechteln, targeting the early encouragement of young students into the profession of a foundry man. Through company visits and internships at an early stage, students have the opportunity to learn more about this profession and to understand the framework of a potential 3.5-year apprenticeship. They are encouraged to understand the importance of learning applied natural sciences in school. Dietermann has a long track record of qualifying its future technical staff through combined theoretical and practical training in apprenticeships.


February 2016
Investment into further machining center

Investment into further machining center: We further expand our machining capacities. By investing into a DMU 60 FD duoBLOCK, we add to our portfolio of machining centers a very versatile, precise and robust five-axis center for the milling of complex parts of medium sizes and medium quantities. This machine is our second machine that offers combined milling and turning in one operation. At the same time, we have divested our last older milling center: all our milling centers are now younger than 5 years. Along with expansion of qualification and headcount, this shows our strong commitment into machining as a core competence of Dietermann + Co.


December 2015
Zeiss CMM

The first machine to be set up in our new building has been a Zeiss Accura II coordinate measuring machine, offering a measuring space of 1200x1800x1000mm. After proper training of our quality staff in application software Calypso, we are now able to program and run measuring routines of any component size machined by us with high reproducibility. This means a quantum leap in the quality supervision of our machining workshop, lifting it to a higher capability level. There are no dimensions, shape or position tolerances that we cannot measure in-house with highest precision. Our Accura II comes with a maximum accuracy error of up to only 1,8µm!


November 2015

October 2015

Completion of new building

After 7 months' work, construction of our machining workshop expansion has been completed. The new building gives us the opportunity to continue on our expansion path in the machining sector that we started 2012. We have positioned ourselves as full service provider and one-stop-shop for ready-to-install castings.

 

 

Neubau Innen

June 2015

Floor space expansion

After an extended planning period, construction started in this year's April for an extension of our buildings. In Fall of this year we want to move into the annex, which will more than double the floor space of our machining workshop. This investment is dedicated to give space to increasing the capacity of our machining workshop. Thus we will be able to continue serving the growing demand of many customers for finished parts with internal resources also in the future. The annex will also provide generous space on its own foundation to a new measuring room, which will be used for a future investment into a coordinate measuring machine.

August 2014
Investment into core sand preparation

In August and September of this year we have put into operation a complete new, central core sand preparation plant. This centralized unit doses and mixes with high precision our standard sand as well as special sands with the components of the binder according to different recipes as currently required by the respective core shooter. This investment strengthens our process stability and with that the quality of our core production. Similarly to our investment into green sand preparation (Link) we are convinced that the quality of the preparation of our sands plays a decisive role on our part quality.


January 2014
Investment into Automated part cleaning

An increasing number of customers, e.g. engine suppliers, ask for defined part cleanliness. In order to achieve the required cleanliness classes in a stable and defined process, we have invested into a cleaning plant. Parts are cleaned automatically by external pressure spraying and complete flooding of the chamber in which they rotate, leaving the station clean and dry.

 


July 2013
investment in our machining shop

We consistently continue the capacity increase and the renewal of our machining workshop: the operation of of our milling centre DMU 60 eVo with pallet changer and high speed spindle has started. We are now more than ever able to offer economic 5-axis/5-sided machining of mid-sized geometries with state-of-the art machinery in our own facility.

July 2012
Large investment in our machining shop

Large investment in our machining shop": In order to satisfy our customers' growing demand for added value on top of the casting, we have made a significant investment in our machining department. Our new universal milling machine DMF260/1100FD is able to do simultaneous 5 axis / 5 sided milling and turning operations up to part diagonals of 1400mm and 4 axis / 4 sided milling operations up to 2600mm length. This is a great leap forward for our internal machining capabilities: now we are able to machine almost all geometries that are cast in our foundry. This is a consequent continuation on our path to provide added values on top of the casting internally as well as with external partners!

August 2010  
It's done:  

after just 2 weeks of plant shutdown, on August 02 2010 we re-started production with a completely new sand regeneration plant. This most important investment of the last 10 years in our plant brings us to the limit of what is technically and commercially feasible in a modern industrial sand regeneration plant. Highest process stability, individual sand quality and energy efficiency are among the requirements that the new heart of our foundry has to fulfill. And, apart from starting troubles, it does fulfill them. Now we feel even more confident to be able to supply high quality castings for the decades to come!
