TEMSA purchases a new CMM Mitutyo Crysta Apex S

TEMSA has purchased a new coordinate-measuring machine Mitutoyo Crysta Apex S to be used exclusively by the erosion and HSC departments. This new acquisition is aimed to improve the pre-setting of the tools to be processed there, since EDM, Wire EDM and HSC are the most important among the manufacturing processes in TEMSA.

The increasing relevance of TEMSA in the powder metallurgical market and the rising complexity of the tools for cold forming makes necessary to apply thorough controls even between intermediate processes. Thus, together with our EROWA system high reliable and standardized measurements will be performed in a very fast and agile way.

The Mitutyo Crysta Apex S is a high precision device (in the range of 1.7µm) and is able to correct temperature variations between 16° and 26°. In addition to point-to-point measurement, the MPP-310Q and Mitutoyo Laser probes provide a contact/non-contact scanning function.

This device, together with the last acquisitions accomplished during the last 2 years have completely renovated the most important department in TEMSA – Erosions and HSC – in each of its machines. This prepares TEMSA to respond with high flexibility and quality to the most challenging markets and clients.

Successful first participation in the EPMA exhibition

TEMSA is very satisfied how things have gone during its first participation in the exhibition organized by the European Powder Metallurgy Association. During 3 days technicians and senior managers of the main PM parts manufacturers in Europe visited our booth to get to know more about what TEMSA has to offer.

The fact that the event was high technical in nature made that the attendees were qualitatively very remarkable also, since most of the visitors were decision-makers. Thus, in this exhibition the most important actors in the PM market were present: from powder, presses and tooling manufacturers to other suppliers of vital auxiliary services, such as measurement devices or the fixation system manufacturer EROWA (which is extensively utilized by TEMSA).

This exhibition and the next to come represent a logical continuation of the diversification strategy of TEMSA in the PM market, where it is achieving step by step a world player role.
